Mouthguards can prevent sport related head injuries.

Recent dental studies have shown that wearing a properly fitted mouthguard while playing sports could prevent severe concussions or mild traumatic brain injuries from a direct blow to the jaw. A study comparing over the counter to custom fitted mouthguards in high school football players showed a nearly 2 to 1 reduction of concussions, in favor of custom fitted mouthguards.
