Risk of Injury to Martial Artists

Depending on which martial art your youth practices, their likelihood of dental injury could be anywhere from very high to moderate. But in any contact sport, dental injuries are a possibility. In fact, dental injuries are a possibility even in some non-contact sports and activities. Fortunately, you can have your young athlete use the Game On martial arts mouthguard to help to protect their teeth and face. 

Athletes are sixty times more likely to sustain a dental or facial injury when they are not wearing a mouthguard. Furthermore, sports accidents make up as much as 39% of all dental injuries in children.

Our mouthguards provide exceptional protection and cost a fraction of the cost of mouthguards from your dentist. The Game On martial arts mouthguard is the best in style, comfort, and protection. Give your athlete the chance they deserve to avoid dental injuries when practicing martial arts of all kinds.

Why should my youth martial artist wear a mouthguard?

The first and most obvious reason your athlete should wear a mouthguard is that it protects their teeth. Any elbow, punch, or kick they take to their mouth could mean a lost tooth. But that’s not the only way they could injure a tooth practicing martial arts — they could roll and catch a stray knee to their mouth even during holding moves. The best way to keep all of your athlete’s teeth safer is to train with a Game On martial arts mouthguard at all times.

A Game On mouthguard can also help keep the bones that support your athlete’s teeth safe, strong, and in the right place. It can cushion and distribute the force of blows or shocks to the face and reduce the impact on your youth’s jaw. This can help prevent trauma like jaw displacement.

Not only do your youth’s teeth need to be protected, but the rest of their mouth needs to be protected from their teeth. Because a Game On martial arts mouthguard fits over the sharp edges of your athlete’s teeth, their cheeks, lips, and gums are protected from being sliced up by those sharp edges if they get hit in the face. This can save them from a great deal of pain.

Not only can a Game On martial arts mouthguard save your child from pain, but it can save you money. Because a mouthguard provides protection against dental and orthodontic injuries, your pocketbook can reap the benefits of having your athlete wear one. The small investment you make on a quality mouthguard today could save you thousands of dollars in emergency care.

What is the best martial arts mouthguard?

Experts agree that the best martial arts mouthguard is one that is custom-fit to your athlete’s teeth. There are other inexpensive mouthguards available over the counter that may be bulky and uncomfortable, or even obstruct your youth’s airway. Your athlete can fit their Game On mouthguard to their teeth as soon as they receive it. It only takes a couple of minutes, and detailed instructions are included on how to do it. 

Our martial arts mouthguards were engineered with the help of dental professionals who are concerned with your youth’s safety as well as their comfort. After all, they’re much less likely to wear an uncomfortable mouthguard. We use our patented VistaMaxx material, which is strong enough to protect your martial artist’s teeth, while being thin enough for them to speak clearly and drink while wearing. Our mouthguards are the first ones accepted by the American Dental Association, so you can trust that your child is protected from painful dental injuries.

If your youth has traditional braces, our Game On martial arts mouthguards are a perfect fit for them. They can mold their guard to their teeth and braces when they first receive it, and remold it each time their bite changes. This can save time and money, as you don’t need to go through the hassle of ordering a new mouthguard each time orthodontic work is done on your child’s teeth.

Game On martial arts mouthguards come in a variety of colors. Your child could order one in their favorite color, or to match the color of belt they have achieved. They can also get their name or the logo of their dojo printed on the mouthguard. Our mouthguards are stylish as well as protective.
