Then, the lips or cheeks may be hit during the sports competition. At this time, it is also necessary to avoid the collision between the inner side of the lips and the teeth to cause injury.

Not only athletes, but ordinary people can also use mouthguards to protect their teeth when exercising. Children and adolescents are especially prone to falls and dental trauma when participating in sports such as basketball and football. The upper incisors are the most vulnerable teeth in the oral cavity. Once damaged, the teeth may be broken, dislocated, and lost. Therefore, it is best to wear a sports mouthguard before high-intensity, confrontational exercise.
