It is necessary to start with the definition of this word and introduce briefly this protection. What we define as a mouthguard, mouthpiece is a protection system designed for the mouth but also both your dental and skeletal apparatus. Basically it is a device, made by gum, gel or thermoplastic materials and in some cases, such in case of custom made mouthguards, made by artificial medical resins. It’s not only strictly related to contact and combat sports but also in sports activities such as hockey, rugby or football.

If you got hit, and even if is not that strong, you can face a disarticulation of the jaw. This problem can cause and injury at the moment we receive the punch or also in the future.
