In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some simple ways that wearing a quality mouthguard may improve your athletic performance. While most know these products for their protective qualities, and with good reason, there are also a number of ways that a strong mouthguard will actually up your ability to compete. 

At Damage Control Mouthguards, we're here to offer the very best custom mouthguard options available for athletes across various sports -- athletes who love our products for more than just the protection they give. What are some of the other direct benefits of a mouthguard to your athletic performance? Here are several.

Easy to Breathe and Drink

When you're out on the field, you need to be able to breathe easy and stay hydrated. A good mouthguard won't get in the way of either of these things. In fact, our innovative design helps athletes breathe up to 38% better than without a mouthguard, and also allows them to drink without having to remove the mouthpiece.

This means you can always stay at the top of your game, whether you're running laps or trying to make that game-winning shot.

Allowing Quality Communication

Athletes often need to be able to communicate with their teammates without risking losing their breath or becoming too distracted. This is especially true in team sports like football, where calling an audible can mean the difference between winning and losing.

With a Damage Control mouthguard, you can easily communicate with your teammates without having to take it out or worry about losing your breath. Our mouthguards are designed to allow full and natural speech, so you can always be on the same page as your team.

Keeping You in the Game

Simply put, you can't perform at a high level if you aren't on the field or court. With a Damage Control mouthguard, you can be sure that you'll always be able to stay in the game.

Our mouthguards are designed to absorb and disperse impact, so you're less likely to suffer from a concussion or other serious injury. Our mouthguards also prevent risks like tongue or jaw injuries, which can sideline you for weeks or even months.

Team Spirit

Okay, so it might not be directly connected to individual performance -- but many teams will customize their mouthguards to match their colors or logos. This can create a sense of unity and team spirit that can be beneficial on the field or court.

Plus, it's just really cool to show off your team colors while you're out there competing.

In the end, a quality mouthguard from Damage Control Mouthguards is about more than just protection. It's about giving you the tools you need to perform at your best and stay in the game no matter what. If you're looking for a mouthguard that will give you an edge no matter what your game, speak to our team today.
