Importance of Mouth Guards
Hockey is a fast-paced sport with pucks and sticks flying around at high speeds. Oftentimes, these will end up directed at the face and, more to the point, to the mouth. Without a mouth guard there, teeth can be lost, and, at many points in the history of the sport, that's exactly what happened. However, more importantly, hockey mouthguards in Canada help reduce the chances of a concussion occurring as a result of the impact of a puck, which weighs about 170 grams, that was heading straight for a face at around 170 kilometres per hour.

Hockey Mouthguard History
The first hockey mouthguard was invented by Arthur Wood, a pediatric dental specialist based in Canada, in the 1950s. At the time, he also served as a coach with the Cooksville Hockey Association, which is based in Mississauga, Ontario, and he started getting more and more concerned about the increasing number of players with teeth that were broken, missing or both. Shortly after he, with the help of Carlie Patterson, another coach with the association, invented mouthguards, they became required to be used by players in the league.
