    Mouth Guards?

    Just checking in to see if anyone uses a mouth guard and if so, what do you use? I had a nice spill recently that resulted in a torn up face and stitches in my mouth. I will be getting a mouth guard once the concussion symptoms clear up enough to get back to some serious riding. Thanks!!!

    Mouth guards are common in physical sports like ice hockey and football etc. My brother wears one for ice hockey. And offer protection to soft tissues and avoid chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage to a tooth, or even tooth loss. I seen a few riders this summer at our local bike park wearing hip looking mouth guards. (one was a patriotic red white and blue the other guy had a fierce looking black one)

    I use a shockdoctor semi-custom fit. I have some very expensive dental work I'd like to protect and a nice side benefit is that they also provide a bit of added protection from concussion because they stabilize some jaw and neck structures.
