Concussions are acceleration-deceleration injuries that occur when biomechanical forces are transmitted to the cerebral tissues. By limiting acceleration of the head, enhanced cervical muscle activity derived from clenching with a mouthguard (MG) may reduce the incidence or severity of concussions following impact. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of voluntary clenching with a proper MG on acceleration of the head during "heading" of a soccer ball. Eleven male high school… Expand
Purposeful Heading in Youth Soccer: A Review
TLDR
A review on youth soccer heading that includes purposeful heading frequency, head impact biomechanics, head injuries, clinical outcomes, and modifying factors has concluded that youth soccer players head the ball at a low frequency that typically increases with age and with a finding that boys head the Ball more often than girls do.

Effect of Clenching via Mouth-guard and Influence of Mouth-guard Occlusal Support Area on Lateral Mandibular Impact of Skull Model
TLDR
Results indicated that clenching with appropriately designed Mouth-Guards is useful for the prevention and reduction of mandibular injuries. Expand
Influence of the mandibular position on the active cervical range of motion of healthy subjects analyzed using an accelerometer
TLDR
The mandibular position seems to have no influence on the active cervical ROM in healthy subjects and the usefulness of the accelerometer in the cervical analysis of temporomandibular disorder subjects is assessed. Expand
Laboratory Validation of a Wearable Sensor for the Measurement of Head Acceleration in Men's and Women's Lacrosse.
TLDR
The study has shown that the GFT does not accurately calculate linear acceleration or angular velocity at the CG of the head; however, reasonable error can be achieved by correcting data based on impact location. Expand
Teeth clenching can modify the muscle contraction strength of the lower or upper limbs: systematic review
This systematic review aimed to investigate the evidence of the interaction between teeth clenching and stimulation on the muscles of the lower and upper limbs. PubMed, Cochrane library and LILACSExpand
The Effects of Anticipation and Visual and Sensory Performance on Concussion Risk in Sport: A Review
TLDR
Preliminary research indicates vision training may help reduce concussion rates in collegiate American Football players, and this promising area of research warrants further investigation, particularly the role of anticipation and visual and sensory performance on reducing concussion risk in non-helmeted contact sports. Expand
The effect of antagonist tooth contact on the biomechanical response of custom‐fitted mouthguards
TLDR
Mouthguards are efficient at decreasing the stress and strain values on the tooth in front of an impact reaching more than 90% of shock absorption and a mouthguard with balanced occlusion and maximum number of contacts with mandibular anterior teeth should be considered because it reduces mouthguard displacement. Expand
Development of a Wearable Mouth Guard Device for Monitoring Teeth Clenching during Exercise
TLDR
The developed wearable MG device with force sensors on both sides of the maxillary first molars is useful for monitoring clenching timing and duration, and the degree of clenching during exercise, which can contribute to explaining the relationship between teeth clenching and sports performance. Expand
Occurrence and patterns of orofacial injury in crossfit practitioners.
TLDR
The prevalence of injuries in the head region indicates a potential concern and preference should be given to making mouthguards for the maxillary teeth, as they are significantly more affected by trauma during CrossFit when compared to the mandibular teeth. Expand
Crystallization and hardening of poly(ethylene-co-vinyl acetate) mouthguards during routine use
TLDR
Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and pulse NMR measurements showed the hardening of MGs, which was associated with an increased crystallinity of the EVA resulting from prolonged usage, and indicated that the increase in the relative amount of the crystalline phase may be primarily attributed to temperature fluctuations and repeated changes in pressure.

TLDR
After the young male rugby players were instructed to clench their masseter muscles, a marked decrease in head acceleration was observed, and the activities performed during rugby practice involved relatively small indirect head acceleration and masseter and sternocleidomastoid muscle activities.

TLDR
The results are important clinically because they indicate that soccer headgear may not be an appropriate head injury prevention tool for all athletes. Expand

Heading in football. Part 1: Development of biomechanical methods to investigate head response
TLDR
No consistent recommendations can be made on the basis of the current study for altering heading techniques to reduce impact severity because changing the biomechanics of currently accepted heading techniques will have inconsistent benefits towards the reduction of head loading. Expand

A similar threshold to concussion in adolescent athletes compared with their collegiate and professional counterparts suggests an equal concussion risk at all levels of play. Expand

Measurement of Head Impacts in Collegiate Football Players: Relationship Between Head Impact Biomechanics and Acute Clinical Outcome After Concussion
TLDR
It is suggested that football players are concussed by impacts to the head that occur at a wide range of magnitudes and that clinical measures of acute symptom severity, postural stability, and neuropsychological function all appear to be largely independent of impact magnitude and location. Expand
Impact forces and neck muscle activity in heading by collegiate female soccer players
TLDR
The increased muscle activity observed in the neck during the jumping approach appears to stabilize the connection between the head and body, thereby increasing the stability of the head-neck complex. Expand

TLDR
The use of faceshields has not shown a proven benefit in preventing the incidence of sport-related concussion in ice hockey or field hockey participants, and further studies are needed to clarify the role of protective equipment in the prevention of sport -related concussion. Expand
