Protective Gear: Wrestling Mouthguards
Get an added level of protection on the mat with a wrestling mouthguard from DICK’S Sporting Goods.
Do you need a mouthguard for wrestling? While wrestling mouthguards may not be required by your school or league, many coaches and athletes see them as a necessity due to the protection they provide for your teeth and jaw. Punching and kicking is not allowed in wrestling, but certain positions may result in contact with the face. A wrestling mouthguard helps serve as a barrier between your top and bottom teeth. Make sure you check league guidelines before choosing your wrestling mouthguard.
Wrestling is an intense sport, so it’s important to gear up with protection like wrestling mouthguards, wrestling headgear and wrestling knee pads. Look for a wrestling mouthguard designed with a low-profile fit that allows for easy speech and comfortable breathing. Many styles also include antimicrobial technology to help prevent the growth of bacteria.
Wrestling mouthguards come in a variety of designs, so you can find the style that’s right for you. Stock styles come ready to wear, while “boil and bite” mouthpieces allow you to mold the guard for a more customized fit. If you play multiple sports, consider a convertible design that can be strapped or strapless. If you’re only using your mouthguard for wrestling, you won’t need a strap. If you wear braces, most leagues require a wrestling mouthguard, so look for designs made specifically for braces.
