The Game On Advantage
Author: Dr. Monroe Elkin, BS PHARM., DMD
Sports Injuries in Football
Approximately 30 million children participate in organized sports in the United States, and more than 3.5 million injuries occur each year. In fact, almost one-third of all injuries incurred during childhood are related to sports. Of course, the highest number of injuries come from high-contact sports, none more so than football. In a single year, more than 215,000 children from the ages of 5 through 14 were treated in the hospital for injuries related to playing football. Game On football mouthguards for kids can help reduce the likelihood that your young athlete will suffer from a severe injury to their teeth or the soft tissue of their mouth.
Game On offers the best football mouthguards for youth football players. They are the first football mouthguards accepted by the American Dental Association. This helps assure you that when your young athlete wears their Game On football mouthguard, they may be better protected against serious injuries to their teeth, gums, and mouth.
Why should my football player wear a mouthguard?
Football players wear a good deal of padding along with helmets, ankle tape, and specialty shoes, all in an attempt to prevent as many injuries as possible. It’s also why most football players wear mouthguards during play. Athletes who don’t wear a mouthguard are 60 times more likely to sustain a dental injury than players who do wear a mouthguard.
Football is one of the highest-contact sports in the U.S. While a quality helmet can help prevent some dental injuries, it’s not enough. Your young athlete’s head can get jostled during play, which can cause their teeth to slam together unexpectedly. This can cause chipped or broken teeth and lacerations to their lips, cheeks, and tongue. If your young athlete wears braces, the danger is even more prevalent. Providing your football player with the best-on-the-market Game On mouthguard is the wisest choice to make for their protection.
What is the best football mouthguard?
The best football mouthguard is one that can be custom-fit to your player’s teeth. Some mouthguards are big and bulky and do not fit specifically to your athlete’s teeth. However, when you receive the Game On mouthguard, you can easily fit it to your child’s teeth in just a couple of minutes. This provides a snugger fit, making it less likely the mouthguard will fall out during play. It also enables your player to talk and drink with the mouthguard in.
If your athlete has braces, Game On is the perfect mouthguard for them. Rather than having to buy a new mouthguard each time the configuration of their teeth changes, you can simply remold their Game On football mouthguard to their teeth. You can do this as many times as necessary while they wear the braces, and after the braces come off too.
It’s easy to fit the Game On mouthguard to your athlete’s teeth. When you receive it, the mouthguard may be too large or small in the back of the teeth, but this can be solved simply. If it’s too long, just cut off the edges so the back of the mouthguard matches the back of their teeth. If it’s too short, gently stretch the material out when it’s heated to cover the back of your player’s teeth. We provide expert tips with each mouthguard on how to fit it and customize it to your athlete’s teeth so you can feel confident that they’re as protected as they can be during football.
We developed our football mouthguards with the assistance of dental professionals. They are made of our patented VistaMaxx material, which is strong enough to provide protection to your player while remaining thin and flexible.

Since they’re so easy to wear, it’s more likely that your athlete will wear their mouthguard throughout the game.
