Believed to have originated in 1823, rugby has always been and continues to be a brutal sport but despite many safety measures coming in to play throughout the years, dental injuries are still at the forefront of the game.
Understanding the importance of dental safety, the RFU state that mouthguards are a compulsory piece of equipment for all participants above school level including County, Division and England Representative Squads, however there are still a number of competitors who are unaware of the significance of mouthguards.
Recent studies have shown that 13-39% of all dental injuries are sports related and 25% of children in the UK will injure or lose a tooth while playing sports, underlining the value of wearing mouthguards during sporting activities.
Rugby is ever growing in popularity; the Rugby Seven's took the world by storm in this year's Rio Olympics and the excitement is building for the upcoming Autumn Internationals as England look to continue their unbeaten record under the watchful eye of Eddie Jones. Rugby continues to captivate large audiences and there are more people now more than ever taking part in the sport.
