Do Baseball Players Wear Mouthguards?

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.

Guardlab’s 3D Printed Mouth Guards Are Changing the Way the UFC Fights

Aidan Butler has taken teeth, yes teeth, and made them interesting thanks to a few 3D printing machines and some seriously famous athletes.

It's worth mentioning that Guardlab is a young company—really young. It was founded in 2014 but went live in 2015 making them just about 2 or 3 years old depending on how you look at it. In that time, they've not only become the official mouth guard of the most brutal sport on earth, but they provide mouth guards to the New England Patriots, The White Sox, The Blue Jays, Georgetown University, the Australian Football League, the whole of the Renzo Gracie Academy, and more.

Getting hit in the head is the reality in many sports. The increasing ubiquity of helmets is a testament to that. Whether it be hockey, skiing, cycling, or many others, head protection is everywhere. Far less common is a piece of safety equipment that could do just as much to protect against injuries: the mouthguard.
