Why should you wear a mouthguard in basketball? Here are the top reasons why it's important to wear a mouthguard in basketball.
1. Prevent chipped teeth
Wearing a mouthguard is a lot cheaper than getting a tooth repaired. Game On mouthguards are the first ADA accepted mouthguards that are recommended by dentists. Wearing one can prevent broken or missing teeth during practice or a game.
2. Prevent major face injuries
Getting hit in the face from a basketball is zero fun. If you don't wear a mouthguard, it can put you at risk for getting a facial fracture if you get hit in the face with a basketball. Game On mouthguards offer 2x the impact absorption of regular mouthguards.
3. Protect your soft tissue
Mouthguards do more than protect your teeth and jaw- they protect the soft tissue in your mouth, too! Keep the tissue inside your cheeks, tongue and gums protected from cuts and other injury.
4. Other minor benefits
Wearing a mouthguard can give you something to chew on and can help to increase focus during a game. Wearing a mouthguard can even help keep your breath fresh by preventing dry mouth!
