A mouthguard is a protective device for the mouth most often used to prevent injury in contact sports such as rugby, hockey, soccer, boxing, extreme sports and any other sport involving falls, body contact or flying equipment.
Mouthguards cover the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums.
While wearing a mouthguard during sports may not seem important, statistics show that mouthguards prevent more than 200,000 oral injuries each year.
Mouthguards that fit securely can significantly reduce damage to the face and teeth as well as reduce the risk of concussions as a result of sports injuries.
For any adult or child participating in a sport, it is important for a mouthguard to fit properly, and as dentists, we strongly advise investing in a professional-grade mouthguard.
