Whether you play sports professionally or simply for fun, you need to protect your teeth. One-third of all dental injuries are sports-related, which is why wearing a mouthguard during physical activity is so important.
A mouthguard is a soft plastic device worn in the mouth. It is used in sports to protect you against oral injuries to the teeth, mouth, cheeks, tongue and jaw.
Failure to wear a mouthguard can result in chipped, broken teeth, fractured crowns and bridges, root damage to the teeth, fractured jaws, lip and cheek injuries, and concussions.
Mouthguards are compulsory in collision sports such as soccer, hockey and boxing where the risk of injury is high. We also recommend that children and adults involved in incidental contact sports like basketball, baseball, softball, wrestling, soccer and volleyball consider wearing a mouth guard to prevent injuries to the mouth.
