Game On Mouthguards is focused on one thing: protecting your smile with the best mouthguard for braces. If you’re playing sports, it’s vital to wear proper dental protection, and if you have braces, it’s twice as important. The National Federation of State High Schools recognizes the importance of mouthguards, and since implementing mandatory mouthguard rules, oral injuries have dropped to less than 1 percent. If you’re looking for the best youth mouthguards for braces, look no further than Game On Mouthguards. Featuring custom-fit comfort, superior protection, and the ability to be remolded, our mouth guards are the best mouth guards for braces on the market today. In fact, Game On Mouthguards are the first mouthguards ever to be accepted by the American Dental Association (ADA).
Should people with braces wear mouthguards when playing sports?
If you have braces, it’s essential for you to wear dental protection whenever you’re playing full- or limited-contact sports. The ADA recommends wearing a mouthguard for many common full-contact sports like football, hockey, and wrestling. They also recommend wearing mouthguards for other sports you might not expect, such as skiing, gymnastics, flag football, and volleyball. The majority of high school, college, and recreational leagues require the use of mouth guards, but others do not. However, when you’re an athlete with braces, you should consider wearing protection no matter what sport you play.
The National Sports Foundation reports that athletes are 60 times more likely to experience damage to the teeth if they’re not wearing mouthguards. Thirty percent of all oral injuries can be attributed to sports, and most are avoidable by equipping yourself or your young athlete with a mouthguard. In fact, sports that require mouth guards report very few dental injuries. That’s why it’s so important to wear a mouth guard, whether the sport you’re playing requires one or not. Game On Mouthguards are sold by dentists and designed by sports dentistry experts, so you can trust that you’re getting superior protection.
Is there an additional risk of injury to those wearing braces?
People with braces are particularly vulnerable to injuries like lip, cheek, and tongue lacerations due to the wires and brackets. If a properly fitted mouthguard isn’t worn, even a gently tossed soccer ball could cause a great deal of pain. In more severe cases, an errant puck could damage the wires or brackets themselves. Game On Mouthguards are the best lip guard for braces, providing comfort and protection with a near-custom fit. It’s important for those with braces to wear a mouthguard that can accommodate the braces themselves while simultaneously providing protection to the entire mouth.
Why are Game On Mouthguards the best mouthguard for braces?
Game On Mouthguards provide superior protection and comfort to athletes with braces. We give you the ability to fit your own mouthguard easily in the comfort of your own home. You don’t have to boil water to fit your mouthguard anymore (although you still can if you prefer to!). All you need is a paper towel, water, a microwave, and five minutes. When you’re done, you’ll have a custom-made mouth guard for braces that can help to prevent dental injuries. Our thin mouthguards provide protection without bulk, so it doesn’t interfere with breathing, drinking, or speaking. Our patented polymer allows for flexibility and thinness without sacrificing shock absorption. Game On Mouthguards are the most retentive mouthguard available, so it stays put when it matters.
Game On’s patented fitting material also allows remolding, a feature that’s hard to find in other manufacturer’s mouth guards. This is a great time- and money-saver for athletes with braces. Having an adjustment used to mean one of two things: getting a whole new mouthguard or wearing an uncomfortable mouthguard that no longer fit. With Game On Mouthguards, those days are gone. Our patented polymer allows for repeated remolding, meaning that you can get a “new” custom-fit mouth guard that accommodates your braces each time they’re adjusted. It’s as simple as repeating the initial molding process. Our strapped and strapless mouthguards meet every athlete’s needs. In fact, you can customize your mouthguard both inside and out. You can choose from a wide variety of flags, symbols, lettering, and numbers in different fonts and colors to make your mouth guard uniquely your own.
