How Mouthguards Work
With no mouthguard, a blow to the lower face sends shock waves through the skull.
A direct impact can fracture the front teeth.
However other blows, particularly to the lower jaw, can cause other damage.
A blow to the lower jaw can slam the jaws together and the sudden impact of the relatively sharp lower teeth into the back of the upper teeth is like a chisel, causing a fracture of the upper teeth by punching them forwards.
In some cases, the transmitted forces can lead to a fracture of the lower jaw, or will travel through the jaw joint (TMJ) into the base of the skull causing a concussion.
Gumshields act like a shock absorber, both spreading the force over a larger area and increasing the time for the peak force to occur.
Dissipating the energy of the blow over a larger area and longer time reduces its effect and preventing or vastly reducing any injury.
