Sports guards are designed to prevent chipped or broken teeth, fractured dental work such as crowns or bridges, lip or cheek injuries, root damage, a fractured jaw or concussion. This means they are an important piece of equipment for contact sports like football, boxing, hockey, roller derby, soccer, basketball and many other sports.
A sports guard is also highly recommended for use during weight lifting. Weightlifters tend to clench and grind while lifting and this tooth-to-tooth action may cause holes/wear, cracks, gum recession, fractures, damage to jaws, and even headaches after training.
