I wear a full cage and a custom fit mouthguard. i don't even notice I have it in most of the time. As mentioned before the cage prevents facial and tooth loss injuries and the mouthguard prevents concussions. It can help with teeth and tongue, yes tongue, injuries also. A few years back I had a girl playing on my daughter's team. They played in mites which didn't require mouthguards. She got tripped up and as she was falling to the ice, her chin crashed into her knee. She wasn't wearing a mouthguard and bit a pretty nasty gash into her tongue that caould have been prevented with a mountguard. Boy was that ugly.
