Mouthguards

Mouthguards should meet properly fitted guidelines set by the Academy for Sports Dentistry, academyforsportsdentistry.org

A properly fitted mouthguard must be used in all lacrosse practices and games at all levels of play. You have a few options when choosing a mouthguard. A custom made mouthguard will give you the most protection and will be the most comfortable, but is the most costly and requires two trips to the dentist. A boil and bite mouthguard is the less expensive option that most players choose. A boil and bite mouthguard can be found at most sports retailers. Be prepared that multiple mouthguards may be needed with continued play because they can deteriorate over time.
