Mouth Guards

The number of sports-related concussions sustained every year is rising. The University of Pittsburgh Department of Neurological Surgery states that in the United States alone 300,000 sports-related concussions occur annually, and the likelihood of suffering a concussion while playing a contact sport is estimated to be as high as 19% per year of play. Although studies have not statistically proven that mouthguards can help prevent concussions, there are many theories that support their use. If nothing else, a custom fitted mouthguard can help protect against tooth damage and lip damage while playing sports.
