If you participate in mixed martial arts then you absolutely need to purchase a MMA mouthpiece. A proper MMA Mouthguard will help prevent concussions and protect your teeth and dental work, including veneers, braces.
Although you may not think so, mixed martial arts are a high contact sport much like boxing, hockey and football.
When a hit or blow is delivered to the mouth, the force of the impact is absorbed by the teeth. This forceful impact can easily cause tooth fractures, cause tooth dislodgement, or damage existing dental work.
If you practice mixed martial arts and have never considered using or getting a mouth guard, now is the time to start.
Tips for Buying an MMA Mouth Guard
Make sure the mouth guard fits well and is soft, yet rigid.
Your back teeth as well as your front teeth should be well covered. Make sure your mouth guard is comfortable.
