Examples: boxing, karate, general combat sports.
The risks are upward blows (under the chin), frontal and lateral blows, as well as kicks. It is paramount that the boxer keeps his facial bones closely joined together by the gum-shield so as to optimise the muscular shroud system of the head and neck and, in doing so, prevent cervical vertebrae traumas and cerebral KO.
Failing that, dissociated jawbones meet no resistance to blows and are exposed to different traumas (mandible fractures, contusions, dislocations and intra-articular oedema of the Temporo Mandibular Joints).
Therefore the gum-shield covers the upper dental arch and the lower arch up to 1mm from the back of the vestibule and has holes at the level of the incisors for breathing purposes. These holes must be large enough to allow an excellent ventilation and prevent the boxer from opening his mouth for oxygen.
