Why should my youth softball player wear a mouthguard?

The word “soft” can be deceiving, as anybody who’s ever played the game knows. Whether your athlete takes a fall while racing around the bases or gets hit by a ball flying at 40 to 60 miles per hour, there are plenty of ways they can get injured playing softball. The standard softball uniform doesn’t include a mouthguard, but it should. That’s where Game On softball mouthguards come into play.

Your child could face chipped or broken teeth if they fall face first or get hit by a speeding ball. At the same time, the speed of the ball can mash their teeth against their lips, gums, and cheeks, causing painful lacerations. In addition to the pain factor, these types of injuries can lead to thousands of dollars worth of orthodontic work to repair the damage. 

If you have your child wear a Game On softball mouthguard, they’ll enjoy extra protection for their teeth and inner mouth. As their parent, you certainly want to give your youth athlete the best protection against injuries, so make sure they have the best softball mouthguard available.

What is the best softball mouthguard?

The Game On softball mouthguard is the best moldable mouthguard the market. Experts say that custom-fit mouthguards provide the best protection as they prevent sports participants from sustaining harmful dental injuries. Some of the mouthguards on the market come as a one-size-fits-all guard, and they tend to be bulky and uncomfortable. If there’s one thing you know as a parent, if their softball mouthguard isn’t comfortable, your athlete is not likely to wear it on a regular basis.

The Game On mouthguard was developed with the help of dental professionals to provide superior protection along with the highest level of comfort for your athlete. Your player will easily be able to talk and drink with their softball mouthguard in, which increases the likelihood that they will not misplace it as they switch from running the bases to guarding the outfield. 

It’s easy to mold the Game On softball mouthguard to fit your player’s teeth. First, if the mouthguard is too big or small, you can easily fix that by either cutting off the end so it lines up with your player’s teeth or by stretching the material in the back to cover all of their teeth. Then with just a microwave, a paper towel, and a bowl of cold water, your athlete can mold the Game On softball mouthguard to fit their mouth.

If your player has braces, there’s no need to worry or get a separate, specialized mouthguard. The Game On mouthguard is the only one developed to be used by student athletes with braces. Furthermore, as your player’s mouth changes due to orthodontic treatment, they can remold the same mouthguard to their teeth, saving you the cost of constantly buying new mouthguards. 

Because it molds so well to your child’s teeth, you can be confident that they will not suffer painful dental injuries if they’re hit by a ball or hit their teeth on the ground as they dive into a base. Since it’s so comfortable, you can also feel safe knowing they will wear it even when you’re not around. The Game On softball mouthguard is a worthy investment in your student’s athletic career.
