Skateboarding is an exciting activity for boys and girls alike. While it’s not yet a regular middle or high school team sport, millions of kids across the country participate in skateboarding to some extent. Many skaters wear protective gear such as a helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads, but you don’t often see a skateboarder wearing a mouthguard. This is unfortunate, because the potential for injuries to the teeth, lips, gums, and cheeks is endemic to the sport.

Why should my youth skateboarder wear a mouthguard?

If your child is a skateboarder, you are no doubt aware of the many different kinds of injuries possible. Abrasions on different body parts, broken bones, and concussions are just a few of these. An injury you may not have considered is what may happen if your child gets hit in the face with their board, a ramp, or the concrete. Painful injuries can harm your child’s teeth, cheeks, gums, lips, and tongue. A Game On skateboarding mouthguard can mitigate your concern over these types of dangerous injuries.

The amount of damage that can be done to your skateboarder’s teeth if they get hit in the mouth is scary to imagine. Broken or chipped teeth are just the beginning. Hitting their face at speed can cause the teeth to slice up their lips, cheeks, and tongue as well. The result can be expensive dental or orthodontic work along with a great deal of pain suffered by your child. 

As a parent, you certainly want to provide the best skateboarding mouthguard for your athlete. When your youth wears a Game On skateboarding mouthguard, their teeth, lips, and cheeks receive extra protection against these kinds of damages. 

What is the best skateboarding mouthguard?

Experts in the field agree that custom-fit mouthguards are the best at providing the protection that can prevent athletes from harmful dental injuries. You could buy other over-the-counter mouthguards, but they may be big, bulky, and uncomfortable. They’re designed to fit a “standard” mouth, but what exactly is that? The Game On skateboarding mouthguard, on the other hand, can be easily custom-fit to your skateboarder’s teeth.

All that’s needed for a custom fit is a microwave, paper towel, and a bowl of water. If the mouthguard is too large or small for your child’s mouth, this can easily be remedied. If it’s too large, simply cut off the excess material so it fits to your youth’s mouth. If it’s too small, stretch the material (once it is pliable) to reach the back of their teeth. We include expert tips with each skateboarding mouthguard we send out to make it easy for you and your child.

Our mouthguards are made with our patented VistaMaxx material, which was engineered with assistance from dental professionals. Our mouthguards are designed to be protective and also comfortable. Game On skateboarding mouthguards are the first mouthguards accepted by the American Dental Association, so you can feel confident that your athlete is protected from injuries to their teeth, lips, and gums while skateboarding. Because our skateboarding mouthguard is comfortable enough to allow your child to drink and talk clearly while wearing it, you can be more comfortable with the idea that they’ll wear it consistently.

Another reason your athlete may find the Game On skateboarding mouthguard an attractive choice is because they can choose from a wide variety of colors. Maybe they want one that matches their favorite sneakers or their best board. The mouthguard can also be customized with an image of your skateboarder’s choice, such as their name, a logo, or any other image or text they choose.

If your athlete wears braces, the Game On skateboarding mouthguard is perfect for them. First, braces have the potential to cause even more harm if your child were to get hit in the face. Second, you don’t have to buy and customize a new mouthguard each time their braces are adjusted. Our mouthguards can be remolded as many times as necessary to see your skateboarder throughout their time with braces and beyond.
