To avoid long-term damage caused by sports injuries, it is important to wear a professionally made mouthguard during any sports activity that involves physical contact or moving objects, like cricket, hockey, football, American football, boxing and rugby. A mouthguard will decrease the risk of damaging / breaking teeth and reduce the danger of dislocating
the jaw. They are rubber‐like and custom made to fit exactly over the teeth and gums. This ensures teeth are cushioned and protected.
