Why do I need a mouthguard for hockey?
A whopping 40 percent of traumatic dental injuries happen while playing sports, and hockey is one of the top three sports where these occur. Without a mouthguard, you're 60 percent more likely to suffer harm to the teeth. From crown and root fractures to traumatic tooth displacements, a single injury can lead to thousands of dollars in dental bills. If an athlete wears braces, lacerations (or cuts) to the cheeks, lips, and tongue can occur, and an impact can even cause damage to the braces themselves, like bent wires and broken brackets. Though it's a well-known fact that mouthguards are an effective way to prevent dental injuries, the variety of mouthguards on the market can seem overwhelming. Game On is the best mouth guard for hockey for braces - and, of course, for players without braces. It's the first mouthguard in history to receive the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance, so you can feel confident in your choice.
Game On Mouthguards are made from a patented fitting material that makes our mouthguards the best-fitting and most retentive mouthguards on the market. Other mouth guards rely on the thickness of their material to protect teeth, which often leads to a device that's too thick to wear comfortably while speaking, breathing, or hydrating. Restrictive mouthguards can lead to athletes chewing on their guards at times when they should be worn, but even the best mouthguard for hockey won't work if it's not in place when it needs to be. Luckily, Game On Mouthguards provide a near-custom dental fit so you can speak clearly to your teammates on the ice. They're comfortable enough to be worn continuously, so they'll be ready to protect your smile.
