Why Do Athletes Wear Mouth Guards?

Why Do Athletes Wear Mouth Guards?

Why wear a mouthguard in sports?

With every new sports season, the first thing that should come to mind is making sure you have all the necessary equipment. One of the most important pieces of equipment is your sports mouth guard.

You may wonder why so many athletes of all levels wear mouthguards? In fact, there's an important statistic from the American Dental Association stating that more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented each year by their use.

No matter the sport you play, at Nxtrnd mouthguards, we recommend you always wear a mouth guard. 

Here are 5 reasons why athletes wear mouth guard:

1) Mouth guards are designed to protect the teeth

In all sports, accidental injuries are sometimes part of the game. There is less room for flexibility inside the mouth, and a blow towards the teeth or gums may fracture the jawbone and cause serious tooth related injuries.

In addition, properly fitted mouth guards protect the soft tissues of the lips, cheeks, gums and tongue by covering the sharp surfaces of the teeth that can cause cuts on impact.

2) Mouth guards reduce the risk of injury

Because sports like football and basketball are fast paced and involve close contact, dental injuries are a comon occurences. For this, many athletes wear mouth guards as a helpful precaution to lower the risk of injuries while playing the sport.

Nxtrnd Mouthguards offer a wide variety of mouthguards that are made of thermoplastic materials. The guards offer a custom snug fit and remain durable, flexible and comfortable to wear.

3) Mouth guards are easy to maintain

There are billions of bacteria living inside your mouth at any given time. If no regular oral hygiene is practiced, many of these bacteria build up as plaque causing tooth decay and gingivitis which can lead to gum disease. Because your mouth guard comes in direct contact with these bacteria, it is just as important to clean and care for your mouth guard as it is for your mouth.

Maintaining your mouth guard is quick and easy. It simply takes a toothbrush, some soap and water, or a antimicrobial mouthwash to clean it and maintain good oral health.

4) Mouth guards are cheaper than dental repair

Dental treatment costs very depending on the complexity of the procedure. If a tooth gets knocked out while playing your sport, it's repair could cost somewhere close to $20,000 per tooth. The cost of a mouth guard becomes very low when compared to these intricate procedures and their inflated prices.

We know that wearing a mouth guard can help preserve and protect the teeth and jaw from injuries and avoid unnecessary hefty dental bills. 

At Nxtrnd, we take pride in offering high-quality mouthguards at affordable prices.

5) Mouth guards helps you play better

Like Deion Sanders said "You look good, you feel good, you play good", mouth guards provide athletes with a sense of reassurance enabling them to worry less, concentrate more on the game and perform better. In fact, our mouth guards are designed to be molded precisely to your teeth offering incredible comfort. Their custom fit makes them effective, comfortable, and enables ease of speech and breathability
