Gum Shields- Do you put yours in your sock?
Gum shields are now mandatory in rugby, hockey, playing Gaa and many other sports. Gum shields are proven to lessen the risk of facial injury, including trauma to your teeth. Gum shields will help prevent against tooth fracture, tooth loss, trauma to your soft tissue, root fracture, etc..
Despite the evidence, that wearing a gum shield will help protect against dental trauma, players often refuse to wear theirs. The main reason is that they are ill fitting. Purchasing a shop made gum shield will usually lead to a poor fit as this is not an exact mould of your mouth.
