Playing sports is often about winning and losing. But losing should not include your teeth. Just as helmets, shoulder pads, and knee pads are worn to protect against sports-related injuries, mouthguards—also called mouth protectors—are an equally important piece of protective gear.

Grin and Wear It

Grin and Wear It is a campaign presented by the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS), the Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS), and the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (MCAAP) that educates parents, coaches, and children on the importance of wearing mouthguards during contact sports.

The Grin and Wear It brochure discusses the importance of wearing a mouthguard during contact sports, the different types of mouthguards available, and how to care and handle your mouthguard.
