Purpose: Mouthguards are orofacial devices that serve as a protective barrier to the possibility of orofacial trauma and dental injuries. They are intended to cushion the structures of the oral cavity including the teeth, lips, tongue, face, and jaw. They prevent impaction injuries of the lower facial region that are caused by high intensity weight training or combat sport. The present study was conducted in order to evaluate the knowledge and attitudes of athletes towards the use of mouth guards. A team of four dental hygienists distributed the surveys with specific questions regarding knowledge, previous experiences and attitudes involving mouth guard use and orofacial injuries that may occur due to noncompliance with mouth guard use.
