Years ago, the only Gumshields available was cheap boil and bite mouthguards, many contact sports did not make you wear them and those where it was in the rules didn’t always enforce it. Sound’s mad right, Not wearing a mouth guard or buying the cheapest available, but they just simply wasn’t available on the market.
Now day’s that has all changed and not only because safety has improved but no one really want’s to loose any teeth and have expensive dental treatment, the cost of a top quality tooth protector is small in comparison and generally people want the best level of protection available to them. But where did it start?
Shock Doctor came and changed every thing in the self-fit gum shield market, now you could get a product that didn’t just shield your teeth but offer other protection from more serious injures resulting in blows to the head with accidental or intentional within contact sports. Then we had Brain-Pad revolutionise the double gumshields market with a mouthguard that helped prevent ko’s. The problem we often found with these products was the fit of the mouthguard itself, often bulky, slightly uncomfortable and of course the dreaded gag. No many people brought up with gumshields they are second nature but for many old school boxers and rugby players etc, they were simply unnatural, so they stuck with cheap gum shields. Finally Opro hit the market, their system with the fin system moulded around the teeth and the result was a less bulky mouthguard with superior fit compared with the current products on the market.
All good products, that have changed and advanced the market at a good price but essentially though these products are all self fit, they mould to your teeth but not to your gum line which believe it or not is the most important part of a mouth guard to get the correct protection and fit. They are also not bespoke in length causing you to gag because they are to long and trigger your gag reflex. So the perfect answer go to the dentist, where your get an impression made mouth guard that fits your teeth. But did you know some of the Dentist products off the shelf are machine finished meaning that they still don’t fit that all important gumline.
So you go to the dentist and they send your impressions where to get your mouth guard? well quite simply they go to a dental labatory that hey use, they may or may not specialize in making mouthguards and they may make many or just a few, without asking you wont know. They may have developed a specialized mouthguard or be using techniques from years ago, without asking you won’t know.
