What are athletic mouthguards for?

A mouthguard is a protective oral device worn to prevent damage or injury to the teeth and facial structures. When created for and worn during sports, the custom mouthguard is also known as an athletic mouthguard. Athletic mouthguards cover the teeth and gums, protecting them from injury. While many often think of investing in an athletic mouthguard for sports like football, injuries can happen at any time, even when riding a bike or playing soccer, and a custom mouthguard can come in handy.
