​Benefits of Using a Mouthguard

By Shock Doctor 8 months ago

Shock Doctor offers mouthguards in various colors and styles. With so many choices, it’s easy to find the perfect one for you. Can’t quite crack the code for which style is right for you? No worries, we offer custom mouthguards as well. Do you wear dental braces? Not a problem! Our mouthguards can be worn with braces also.

Simply stated, if you’re going to participate in sports, you need to wear a mouthguard. Research suggests that over 5 million teeth are avulsed — or forcibly detached — each year from children participating in sports, which results in about $500 million in health care costs. Don’t become another part of this statistic.

We are so confident in our product, that we put our money where your mouth is. We stand by our products, so all our mouthguards come with a $10,000 dental warranty.


Protecting your teeth is easy with a mouthguard from Shock Doctor. Our designs allow for an instant fit — no molding required! Our quick-release tether allows the lip guard to be worn strapped or strapless.

Convenience and a perfect fit for our customers is a priority. That’s why we have several different types of fit available. Our classic fit is a more traditional mouthguard and all-around performer. We offer a sport fit that is better for certain sports. Our braces fit — as the name would suggest — is a great option for those with orthodontics. Our double-braces mouthguards offer protection for both the upper and lower teeth. With all the styles available, we guarantee you will find the right model for you.

The Setbacks

The most obvious benefits of a mouthguard are avoiding injury and preserving your teeth. But to examine the wider benefits of a mouthguard, it’s best to look at the downsides of not wearing one.

A dental injury can cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars to correct, while you can pick up most of our mouthguards for under a hundred dollars. Aside from the financial burden that a tooth injury can cause, let’s not overlook the time away from sports and training. While you recover, you are losing valuable time that you could be using to refine your skills. From a psychological perspective, suffering an injury without using any protective gear can make a player tentative and hesitant.

Studies show that even long after an athlete has physically recovered, they are still plagued by fear of reinjuring themselves. Avoid those unnecessary setbacks with a mouthguard from Shock Doctor.


Some people may have heard that mouthguards affect a person’s cardiovascular endurance, or they may have come to the conclusion on their own. If you fall into this group of people, you will be relieved to know that studies have proven that mouthguards do not affect cardiovascular performance.

Our Max AirFlow breathing channel ensures that your breathing isn’t impaired. Our newly designed models allow for a larger breathing channel that relaxes the jaw and prevents blockage by your teeth. No need to worry about allergic reactions either — all our mouthguards are free of allergens like latex, BPA, and phthalates.

Protecting Others From Your Teeth

Unless biting is part of your offensive strategy, you probably don’t go around deliberately biting other players. On the other hand, you would probably like to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the opposing players are wearing a mouthguard so you’re not at risk of being bitten. Wearing a Shock Doctor mouthguard is a great way to prevent inadvertently chomping your pearlies on a competitor or even a teammate.
