Do you wear a mouth guard when jumping?

I've heard of jumpers chipping a tooth from falling during a jump and have taken to wearing a mouth guard. Is this common? I don't know of anyone in our tournaments who uses one.

    I’ve only seen a handful of the big boys use mouth guards, very few short of the 200’ club use one.

    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    My son never did but I don't see a down side to it.

    I do myself
    And I suggest to every jumper I take out to where one
    Especially the young kids with 7k worth of braces on there teeth

    I wore one after getting a ski under the jaw in a crash. My dentist at the time (also a jumper) said he was afraid of swallowing one but we decided that the solution to that was just to use one with a the chin strap- what's the downside?

    I used to, so did my daughter. Wife is a dentist and insisted. It really is a good idea with few, if any, downsides. Teeth are expensive to fix not to mention the soft tissue damage they can cause in the mouth with a hard fall.

    I do, and I’m a tad short of 200. A big tad.

    I stand corrected! I agree its a good idea with no downside. Just my observation that not many jumpers use one.

    I started using one when I got braces, but stopped as soon as I got them off.
