4 reasons to wear a mouthguard when playing sports

Mouthguards:

1.   Reduce the chance of teeth being knocked out, chipped or fractured.
2.   Protect the lips, cheeks, and tongue from being cut or bruised by the teeth.
3.   Protect against jaw fractures by absorbing energy from traumatic blows to the chin,
preventing upward & backward movement of the lower jaw.

4.   May protect against brain concussions by cushioning shock from a blow to the jaw and preventing transmission of the shock through the TMJ to the skull

 

Play hard but play smart!
Protect yourself and your children with a mouthguard.
