Mouth Guards

WHY WEAR A MOUTH GUARD?

5 Good Reasons WHY YOU NEED A MOUTH GUARD

  1. Cushions teeth against impact – Sports other than traditional contact sports can involve heavy knocks to the teeth and mouth. Wearing a mouthguard while playing any sport where there is a chance of being hit in the jaw or head will help prevent you from chipping, breaking or knocking out a tooth.
  2. Protects against jaw joint injuries – Wearing a mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact or blow to the face which may otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw.
  3. Protects against soft tissue injuries – Cut, grazed or bruised lips, cheeks and gums are likely to occur as a result of direct impact to the mouth area. The reinforcement of a mouthguard can help minimize soft tissue injuries.
  4. Helps prevent neck & jaw injuries – Any impact to the neck or jaw can result in serious injury. Wearing a mouthguard at the time of impact reduces the likelihood of jaw dislodgement or neck trauma.
  5. May help reduce concussion – A head clash or trauma is not uncommon at both game time and in training. Make sure you have your mouthguard in at all times as it may help reduce the chance of concussion.  An estimated 5 MILLION TEETH are lost every year to sports related dental injuries; an alarming trend that may be prevented by simply choosing to wear a mouthguard.

MOST SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS NOW REQUIRE PARTICIPANTS TO WEAR A MOUTHGUARD AS PART OF THEIR PROTECTIVE GEAR

How It Works…

Whenever athletes compete or train, the natural reaction is to clench the jaw. It’s all part of the “fight or flight” hard-wiring in the brain.

When under stress or strain, athletes clench their teeth triggering an excess production of performance-sapping hormones like cortisol (the stress hormone) and restrict the airway due to nerve and muscle tension. Studies have shown that by putting a scientifically measured space between the teeth athletes can limit the production of these hormones and open the airway, which aids in oxygen exchange and the reduction of lactic acid.

Multi-patented ArmourBite Power Wedges are uniquely shaped to help maintain optimal spacing and counteract the negative effects of clenching. ArmourBite Technology helps the body help itself by unlocking the power of the jaw so athletes can unleash their full potential and perform better.
