Mouth Guards - So Important, They Could Save Your Life

For athletes of many different sports, mouth guards play a very important role. Especially in aggressive contact sports, mouth guards help a great deal to protect a player's teeth and gums during impact situations.

While protecting your teeth is the most obvious benefit of wearing a mouth guard, it may come as a surprise to some that mouth guards protect much more than just that - and they can even save an athlete's life.

By wearing a mouth guard, you can reduce the risk of serious brain injuries during sporting collisions - this is especially true for athletes who make use of custom mouth guards.

By helping to absorb shock, stabilising the head and neck and by limiting movement caused by a direct hit to the jaw, mouth guards can prevent some sports-related concussions.

A recent study found that rugby players wearing a store-bought mouth guard, were more than twice as likely to suffer mild traumatic brain injuries as opposed to those wearing a properly-fitted, custom mouth guard.
