Everybody that plays a sport – especially a combat sport – should wear a gumshield whatever their age. This concerns combat sports, but also contact sports and even those with no contact.
Agreat number of sports can put your teeth and your smile at risk: boxing, rugby, hockey, football, basketball, handball :
- broken teeth
- lost teeth
- damaged gums
A gumshield is intended to greatly reduce any such risks by spreading shocks over a larger surface so as to reduce the pressure per square centimetre.
There are four different types of gumshield: those that are meant for no-contact sports (cycling, squash etc.), those meant for contact sports (rugby, football, basketball, handball), those meant for combat sports and finally orthodontic gumshields. Gumshields are also classed by three families: ready-to-wear, customizable heat-moulding and those offered by dental surgeries.
