Athletes & Mouthguards
Imagine how it would feel to be missing your front teeth. You would hate to smile, conversations would feel uncomfortable, pronouncing words would be difficult and so would eating certain foods. People often don’t realize how much they would miss their teeth until they actually lose one.
Every week, thousands of young athletes experience injuries whether they are on the playing field, on the basketball court, while biking or skating or doing some other sort of activity. Injuries to the face in just about every sport can harm your teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue. A properly fitted mouthguard quickly becomes an important piece of athletic gear when dealing with injuries to the face. According to the American Dental Association, “An athlete is 60 times more likely to suffer harm to the teeth when not wearing a mouthguard and mouthguards can help buffer an impact or blow that otherwise could cause broken teeth, jaw injuries or cuts to the lip, tongue or face.” Mouthguards are extremely popular in contact sports such as football, ice hockey, lacrosse, boxing and field hockey, but their popularity is also trending upwards for other sports as well. Mouthguards help protect teeth even in noncontact sports and many experts now recommend that a mouthguard be worn for any recreational activity that poses a risk of injury to the mouth.
When choosing a mouthguard that is right for you, there are three types to choose from:
- The ready-made, or stock mouthguard
- The mouth-formed “boil-and-bite” mouthguard
- The custom-made mouthguard by a dentist
All properly fitted mouthguards provide varying degrees of protection. The most effective mouthguard should be resilient, tear-resistant and comfortable. It should also fit properly, be durable and not restrict your speech or breathing.
Here at MoGo Sport we pride ourselves in the protection, performance and fit that our mouthguards consist of. The added value that we provide mouthguard users is the fact that ours are flavored! Before MoGo Sport came along with our Flavored Mouthguards, the overall mouthguard wearing experience was not a pleasant one. Now athletes actually want to wear their mouthguard because of the great taste. We have revolutionized the mouthguard industry and provide athletes with something no other mouthguard company currently offers, FLAVOR! The best part about it is that the flavor is not coated or sprayed on; it is embedded into the plastic and will last game, after game, after game. Currently we have four flavors to choose from: Fruit Punch, Orange, Lemon & Mint.
