Anybody who watches NBA games has likely seen multiple players chewing on their mouthguards between plays. It makes sense; basketball involves lots of elbows flying and other mishaps that could lead to unplanned trips to the dentist. In baseball, however, mouthguards are more of an open secret among MLB players.
A look at the science of baseball shows that mouthguards can help with a variety of issues that come with playing America’s favorite pastime. From simple stress relief to the ability to control breathing, everyone who takes the field with one of these guards has a reason to do so.
These reasons provide a fascinating look inside an aspect of baseball that doesn’t get much coverage.
NEW YORK | MARCH 11, 2019 - GuardLab® a New York-based custom mouthguard company specializing in 3D technology and 3D printing announces today a new Hockey Brand Ambassador, NHL forward James van Riemsdyk of the Philadelphia Flyers. Van Riemsdyk joins a diverse and talented spectrum of passionate and dedicated athletes, who believe in the superior quality of GuardLab products and our modern technology to improve the way athletes protect their teeth.
"I first got scanned for my GuardLab mouthpiece this past summer and the process couldn't have been easier. It only took about ten minutes to do the 3D scan, so you don't have to deal with the messy putty, clearly the technology is way better. I feel like that [process] allowed for a better fit, and now I find that my mouthguard is in my mouth more often than hanging out of the side of it. Not only was the process way easier, but the product is way better than what I've had in the past” said NHL forward, James van Riemsdyk.
Top Alcohol Dragster racer Justin Ashley understands the importance of driver safety. He's also in tune with the importance of a driver's well-being, which is just as important.
Ashley, throughout his second season, has been racing with the aid of a custom-fitted GuardLab mouthguard. While some might be content to get something from a local sports store, he believes you get what you pay for.
