Gum shields are necessary for contact sports where the athlete needs to protect their teeth. Football players often have gum shields on a small strip attached to the face mask to help protect them from having teeth knocked out in violent contact that goes on in the game. It is a good protection.

Gum shields are not always required, but even when they are not, it is a good idea to wear one. They protect you from concussions and chipped teeth.
