There are many injuries that can come from contact sports like hockey or football, such as lost teeth, fractured jaws and cuts on gums. A sports guard not only protects your teeth. It also protects the soft tissues around the mouth. In more serious injuries a mouthguard can reduce the risk of jaw fracture by absorbing much of a blow to the jaw.
Whether you’re playing full-contact hockey or a friendly game of racquetball, a little preparation can prevent costly and sometimes painful mistakes later on.
Sports guards are necessary for any sport where you might come into contact with other players or hard surfaces. Anyone who participate in sports such as football, hockey, basketball, ski racing, baseball, soccer, wrestling, lacrosse, rugby, gymnastics and martial arts should wear sports guards when practicing or competing.
