A mouthguard is an essential “gear” while playing active sports. Mouthguards work on the “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” Principle, where a properly fabricated mouthguard cushions the blow to the mouth and dissipate the forces to the bones. Therefore it is critical that a mouthguard is properly fitted. While over the counter mouthguards are cheaper, they make it harder to breathe and speak as they are not custom fabricated. Improper use of a mouthguard is equal to not wearing one at all and may lead to broken teeth, jaw injuries, or cuts to the lip, tongue or face.
Common sports that generally require mouthguards are Acrobatics, Baseball, Basketball, Bicycling, Boxing, Equestrian Events, Extreme Sports, Field Hockey, Football, Gymnastics, Handball, Ice Hockey, Inline Skating, Lacrosse, Martial Arts, Racquetball, Rugby, Shotputting, Skateboarding, Skiing, Skydiving, Soccer, Softball, Squash, Surfing, Volleyball, Water Polo, Weightlifting & Wrestling
