Excellent dental protective devices mouthguards are helpful in many situations, which is why their popularity has increased in recent years.

Why do you need custom mouthguards?

Mouthguards protect your teeth, lips, tongue, gums, cheeks and jaws against injuries. Not only combat sports like boxing and martial art but also any Contact or non-contact sports (basketball, touch or full contact rugby, hockey, football) require a mouthguard as part of the equipment.


Superior protection

Some sports involve a high risk of facial injuries or falling. Whether it’s boxing, rugby, martial arts, hockey, football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, gymnastics, skateboarding, biking, snowboarding, skiing or ice skating, children and adults need protection against lip, teeth, tongue, gum, jaw and cheek injuries. 

One study published in 2019 indicated that wearing a mouthguard improved the prevention of “Orofacial Injuries and Concussions in Sports”. 

Sports mouthguards are designed to absorb shock and protect against injuries effectively. The modern technologies and the resistant and flexible materials used for manufacturing give mouthguard wearers the freedom to speak and enjoy sports without any problem or discomfort.

Mouthguards are also recommended for people who wear braces. A mouthguard for braces protects while playing sports as braces may cause oral problems even in the case of slight injuries to the mouth, gums, teeth or lips.
