The Best Thin Mouthguards for Sports

Why Your Youth Needs to Wear a Mouthguard for Sports

Participation in sports provides many benefits to young athletes. Being part of a team can boost their self-confidence and their ability to gracefully win and lose a competition. They may develop friendships that last a lifetime and they learn to respect coaches, referees, and the rules. These are all qualities that can benefit them for their entire life, not just during their sports season. You want to make sure that your athlete is safe while participating in football, lacrosse, wrestling, or any other sport. That’s why Game On provides the most comfortable, best thin mouthguards for sports.

Each year, some 30 million children and teens participate in organized sports in the U.S., and each year more than 3.5 million of them experience some sort of injury. Almost one-third of all injuries incurred in childhood are related to sports participation. The most common youth sports injuries are strains and sprains, but there are plenty of dental injuries to go around as well. 

This information shouldn’t scare you off of letting your youth participate in sports. There are too many benefits to dismiss sports as an option. Instead, it’s up to you to make sure that your athlete is protected in every way possible. Each sport comes with protective gear specific to the activities involved. Football and hockey players wear a lot of protective gear because of how high the rate of contact is. The same is true for wrestling, lacrosse, and other contact sports. Even solo sports like snowboarding or skateboarding require gear to be as safe as possible. 

Most organized sports teams require their players to wear mouthguards. With funding being what it is, you’re more than likely going to have to obtain the mouthguard on your own. When you look into what makes a mouthguard good for your child, consider both their comfort and protection. Because Game On makes thin mouthguards for sports that are also strong and protective, they are the best on the market. Even the American Dental Association agrees—the Game On mouthguards are the only ones accepted by the ADA. This means they have passed rigorous quality standards and you can trust that they provide young athletes with the superior protection they need as they participate in soccer, basketball, or the sport of their choice.
