Continue reading to learn how important it is to wear a mouthguard while boxing and how the Game On boxing mouthguard can protect you from painful injuries.
Why should I wear a mouthguard while boxing?
Boxing is arguably the highest-contact sport you could participate in. That’s why boxers wear gloves that can spread contact out over a larger area, headgear to protect against brain injuries, and mouthguards to protect against all sorts of dental injuries. Boxing may be the only sport in which injuries are expected, but even so, it’s important to protect yourself from the most painful and costly dental injuries that can be sustained during the sport.
As many as 39 percent of all dental injuries come from participation in sports, and athletes who do not wear a mouthguard more than 60 times more likely to sustain a dental injury than those who do wear a mouthguard. The danger is even greater for boxers who wear traditional metal wire braces. Using the best mouthguard on the market is the smartest choice to make for your boxing career.
What is the best boxing mouthguard?
Dental professionals agree that a custom-fit boxing mouthguard is the best at protecting sports participants from painful dental injuries. Standard mouthguards can be bulky and are not fit specifically to your teeth. They can be uncomfortable and can fall out when put under stress.
The Game On boxing mouthguard, on the other hand, is easily customizable to your teeth, even if you have braces. With a snugger fit, it’s less likely the mouthguard will fall out at an inopportune moment.
When you first receive your Game On boxing mouthguard, you will take a couple of minutes to fit it specifically to your bite. If the mouthguard is too long or short at the back of your teeth, you can easily cut excess material or stretch the material to cover your teeth perfectly. We provide complete directions and expert tips on how to customize your boxing mouthguard to your teeth so you can be confident that your teeth and mouth are protected when you are in the ring.
The Game On boxing mouthguard is the first one on the market that is accepted by the American Dental Association. That alone should tell you how high quality the mouthguard is. Our boxing mouthguard is made of our patented VistaMaxx material, which is strong enough to offer superior protection while being supple enough to allow you to breathe freely, speak clearly, and take hydration while wearing it during a boxing match. It also keeps it comfortable, so it won’t be a burden to wear it while participating in your sport.
In addition, Game On boxing mouthguards are customizable. You can choose from a variety of colors from clear to black and from red to turquoise. You will be sure to find one in your favorite color or one to match your shorts. You can have your name or any other word or short phrase printed on your mouthguard that you want.

You don’t have to get a new mouthguard each time your teeth move, either. As easily as you originally molded the mouthguard to your teeth, you can remold it as your orthodontic work continues.
