It could shatter your personality, from smiling to eating to talking, everything will be affected. When playing any sports like football, it is important to take special care of your mouth and that you can do by wearing a Sports Mouth Guard.
Mouth guards are also called protectors as they help cushion a blow that impacts your face directly. They minimize the risk of broken teeth while also protecting your lips, jaw, tongue, and face. A mouth guard usually covers the upper teeth while also protecting the soft tissues of your lips, tongue, and cheek lining. Your front teeth are most vulnerable when you take a blow to the face as they stick more out.

Types of Mouth guards

And if you’re on a budget, we recommend you get a stock mouth guard or a boil-and-bite from your local drugstore. The three types are explained below.
These sorts of mouth guards are made by your dentist personally. They are a bit more expensive than the others because they are solely made to fit in your mouth.
There are your everyday inexpensive mouth guards. They come ready-made and ready to wear. But, they lack the comfort and fit that you may feel in a custom mouthguard. They can be bulky and might also cause difficulty in breathing and talking.
Boil and bite
