The Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) has received a number of queries regarding the use of mouth piece.
The primary concern is that the mouth piece may not be suitable for all players as some of them may find that wearing the mouth piece is more dangerous than not wearing it. The STF recognizes that this is possible because not all players will have a teeth structure that will allow the mouth guard to serve its purpose.
Therefore, the STF will
- allow players to wear customized mouth guard made by orthodontist or
- exempt players from wearing one if they can produce a letter from a doctor or dentist certifying that it would be more harmful for them to use the mouth guard.
