Custom Mouthguard for Basketball

Risk of Injury to Basketball Players

If you play basketball, it’s likely that you don’t wear much as far as protective gear. Most basketball players don’t wear mouthguards and it’s generally not a part of the required gear for many teams. However, if you play basketball, you could definitely benefit from wearing the best basketball mouthguard on the market, our highly customizable Game On basketball mouthguard.

Most players in the NBA wear mouthguards even though they are not required. That’s because more than 10 percent of university and college basketball players sustain at least one dental injury each season. If the team you’re on doesn’t require mouthguards, that doesn’t mean you don’t need one. Game On basketball mouthguards can help protect against dental injuries like broken or chipped teeth as well as injuries to the soft tissue in your mouth, which can get hurt if you get hit in the face and your teeth mash up against your lips, cheeks, or tongue.

Why should I wear a basketball mouthguard?

As a basketball player, you’re probably already aware of the types of injuries you could sustain while playing your sport. Of course, sprained muscles and broken bones top the list of potential injuries, but dental injuries are certainly not unheard of. If you get hit with a ball in the face, you could end up in a great deal of pain along with a bloody mouth. You could even get an injury to your teeth or mouth if you are fouled and hit the court facefirst. These types of painful injuries can affect more than just your teeth. Your gums, lips, and tongue can be injured, and while they do heal fast, mouth injuries like this do bleed a lot at first. Wearing a Game On basketball mouthguard could help to make you less likely to sustain these types of injuries.

The types of injuries you can sustain to your teeth could be hard to imagine. You could end up with a chipped tooth, or you could end up with a tooth shoved up into your gums. That can be extremely painful, and require a lot of expensive dental or orthodontic care. If you wear braces, it’s even more likely you would incur painful lacerations if you’re hit with an elbow or a ball to the face. Fortunately, the Game On basketball mouthguard works well for athletes with or without braces. Considering the alternative, wearing a mouthguard while playing basketball seems like the obvious choice.

What is the best customizable basketball mouthguard?

Dental professionals agree that the best basketball mouthguard is one that is custom-fit to your teeth. There are plenty of over-the-counter mouthguards available, but many of them are too big and bulky to be comfortable. You’re not likely to wear a mouthguard on a regular basis if you can’t drink water, speak clearly, and breathe easily when wearing it. And a mouthguard you leave in your locker doesn’t protect you from injuries at all.

When you first receive your Game On basketball mouthguard, it only takes a few minutes to mold it to your teeth. If it starts out too long or short in the back, you can easily fix this. Complete instructions with pictures come with every Game On basketball mouthguard we send out, including special instructions for if you have braces.

Our mouthguards were developed with the assistance of dental professionals and are made of our patented VistaMaxx material. This material does not absorb bacteria, saliva, or water.

They are the only mouthguards accepted by the American Dental Association, so you can be confident you are wearing the best tooth and mouth protection possible when you use it during basketball practice and games.

Another benefit of the Game On basketball mouthguard is that it is entirely customizable. To start, you can choose from a wide variety of colors, so you can match your mouthguard to your team uniform.
