Who needs to wear a mouthguard?

Regardless of your age, you should wear a mouthguard when playing sports. Our custom-fit mouthguards may help to prevent sports-related dental injuries of all types, from chipped teeth to root fractures. Game On Mouthguards are designed by sports dentistry specialists and offer superior comfort and protection to athletes of all ages. Collision sports like ice hockey and football often require mouthguards, but studies show that up to a full third of athletes are not in compliance. Wearing a mouthguard is a small thing that may help to protect you from hefty dental bills and weeks of pain and suffering.

What types of activities are mouthguards recommended for?

The ADA recommends mouthguards for over two dozen sports, some of which may surprise you, like weight lifting, skiing, and equestrian events. For younger athletes, the National Federation of State High School Associations mandates mouthguards for just four sports: football, ice hockey, lacrosse, and field hockey. Schools and recreational leagues may also have separate requirements for mouthguards as well, but the truth is that athletes should always wear a mouthguard, during both practices and games. Consider the potential risk of roller hockey, jiu jitsu, and even equestrian events. It only takes a moment for an injury to happen.

Organized sports aren’t the only activities for which you should be wearing a mouthguard. A startling 62 percent of dental incidents happen while participating in nonorganized sports, like bicycling, skateboarding, and rollerblading around the neighborhood. It’s especially important for kids under 10 to wear mouthguards. Statistically, they are the most likely group of athletes to suffer from dental injuries. Experiencing dental trauma at a young age can have a lifelong effect on your child’s smile, so make it a habit early on. Kids may be reluctant to wear mouthguards at first, but Game On makes a comfortable, cool mouthguard that your athlete can customize. Names, numbers, or other text in five different fonts and 15 colors can be put onto the guard along with a range of symbols and flags.

What type of mouthguard should I use?

There are three primary types of mouthguards: ready-made guards, boil and bite guards, and custom guards made at a dentists’ office. When you’re researching mouth guards, keep these criteria in mind. The American Dental Association recommends a mouthguard that is:

Ready-made guards don’t provide the same level of customization as a Game On guard, and stock guards often rely on bulky, uncomfortable material to provide cushioning. Game On is an affordable, easy-to-fit mouthguard that provides all of this and more. Our mouthguards are made of a patented material called Vistamaxx, which allows us to provide you with a near-custom dental fit at a fraction of the price. Our thin mouth guards are easy to mold and simple to care for. All you need is soap and water, or simply toss it in the dishwasher.

Can Game On Mouthguards reduce the risk of concussions?

Game On Mouthguards may help to reduce the force of impact and prevent injuries. Our research shows that Game On guards absorb impacts from 40 to 100 percent more than other mouth guards. However, there is no research that shows any kind of mouthguard reduces the chance of concussion. There aren’t any negatives to wearing a mouthguard - but choosing to skip it is a risky decision. Studies show that 56 percent of all concussions in HS athletes were suffered when mouthguards were not worn. Concussions aside, Game On Mouthguards may help to protect you from a variety of injuries, including crown and root fractures, traumatic tooth avulsions, and for those with braces, cuts to the inner mouth. Until further research is done, it’s safe to say that wearing a mouthguard is still a smart idea.
