mouth guards

Something got me thinking and thought I'd ask and see what the general thought is...

Does anyone ever wear a mouth guard when they ride? I started wondering this because I've noticed a few times when I'm riding that my jaw tends to tighten up a bit and feel a bit of pressure on my teeth so I had thought about getting one, any thoughts or opinions?

I wear a mouth piece like athletes wear while at the track, it might save some teeth

You're too tense riding. Squeeze tank with thighs, support upper body with core, relax arms and grip.

I thought about this as well but I don't think that's it, I've got my legs tight on the tank, I think it's just something my body does without realizing it, I noticed it a few times even when i'm riding on the street over time.

Your cheek pads in your lid may be the cause

Mine push my cheeks a bit. Makes me tighten my jaw some to keep my jaw right. I didn't notice till I went back to my Suomi.

I was reading some articles (which of course I can't find right now) where it was said that mouth pieces are also thought to be a great way of avoiding a concussion in a crash. Something about the jaw moving freely increases the chances. I am now wearing one, but hope to never find out

It's a good idea, but I don't think a mouth piece is going to stop your brain from crashing into your skull (concussion)

I might grab a mouth piece and try it out for awhile and see if that doesn't help, I've noticed it in both my helmets, one is a little looser then the other. Maybe it is the cheeks though, I've noticed several GP riders wearing them as well.

I would think it wouldn't be a bad idea, if only to keep you from biting your cheeks/tongue should you wreck.

It could. I mean, if your jaw is tight, that means your neck muscles could be tight also, which would keep the head from moving while the brain rattles around.


Just my guess though.
