Yeah, I wear a bandanna over my face like a cowboy (I think it looks funny) to protect my teeth, and it's served me for two years with several direct tooth hits through it. Thin cloth actually does absorb a lot of momentum if it's got air under it.
When I'm getting up close and personal, I make a point of curling my lips in to tense the muscle and brace for impact (which has saved me from incident a few times) and I've also taken things to chew on the field to keep me from opening my mouth absently. (gum, fruit snacks, and jerky work well and fit in flat pouches)
