As noted in this thread, there's conflicting studies on the effectiveness of mouthguards in protecting against concussion.

I don't wear one with my cage but I may start. Last night a lady in our co-ed league got slewfooted (accidentally, and by her husband!) on a transition and slammed the back of her head into the ice. Probably mildly concussed, but she also chipped a tooth from her jaw clacking shut on the impact.

Sounded gross. Enough to make me consider even one of those little shock doctor ones.
