Mouthguards are mandatory by rule in almost every football organization for good reason. A properly designed football mouth guard will provide protection to the teeth, lips and tongue area. Depending on the athlete's position on the field, different designs and fits are available. Please see our blog titled "What Mouthguard is Best for you" for more information.
When watching a football game, the most noticable mouth guards worn by pro athletes are the "Lip Guard" models. Lip guards, also known as lip protectors or binkies offer more protection than regular mouth guards. In addition to protecting your teeth and gums from impact forces, they also protect the lips from lacerations which can sometimes be very severe. In most cases, lip lacerations are caused by flying fingers as players attempt to tackle or hold each other off.
A lip guard mouth guard is perfect for an athlete that plays a position involving little speech and a lot of physical contact. By covering the whole mouth with a strong barrier, this kind of guard will protect you from unnecessary cosmetic injury.
