Wearing a sports mouthguard during contact sports is essential to help absorb and spread the impact of a blow to the face – which would otherwise result in an injury to your teeth, mouth or jaw.
Let’s face it, sport can be a risky business – it only takes one second to change your face forever
Sports other than traditional contact sports can involve heavy knocks to the teeth and mouth. Wearing a mouthguard while playing any sport where there is a risk of falling is essential.
If there is a chance of being hit in the jaw or head, a mouthguard will help prevent you from chipping, breaking or knocking out a tooth.
A head clash or trauma is not uncommon at both game time and in training. Make sure you have your mouthguard in at all times as it may help reduce the chance of concussion.
