Custom Mouth Guards Reduce Traumatic Brain Injuries
A 2014 study published in Science Daily suggests that a well-fitting, customized mouth guard can also help minimize the risk of traumatic brain injuries. The study followed two groups of high school football players; one that wore over-the-counter mouth guards, and one that wore customized mouth guards. All players wore the same type of helmets.
