What are Athletic Mouth Guards?
Protective mouth guards are an important part of safety against injury for youth and adults who are involved in sports. Professional mouth guards / sport guards can be made in many colors and different thicknesses proportional to the risks of the sport. For example, ice hockey players would need thicker guards than soccer players. Mouth guards can aid greatly in reducing the potential for jaw fracture, concussion or severe tooth damage in the event of a blow to the jaw or teeth. They are highly recommended for athletes involved in all sports that could result in trauma to the head, jaw or teeth.
