PLAYING THE GUARD POSITION
Whether NBA players and their fans think that professional basketball players should serve as role models or not, one aspect of NBA players’ behavior is making a big impression. While relatively few players wore mouth guards to protect their teeth from errant elbows a decade ago, the protective devices have currently become far more commonplace. Fans can hardly watch a game without seeing players inserting the safety devices into their mouths as they enter the game. Aside from helping ensure that a player’s teeth will not be loosened or knocked out, mouth guards may also help the jaw loosen up. As a result, muscle tension may be reduced throughout the body, allowing players to play a more relaxed game.
P.S. The most effective sports mouth guards are the custom-made models that the dentist fabricates from an impression of a patient’s teeth and bite.
