About the Product
PlaySafe sports mouthguards provide superior fit and retention compared to boil-and-bite mouthguards. Available in six levels of protection, the mouthguards range from one to three layers of laminated ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) material, with a final occlusal thickness between 3 mm and 5 mm. PlaySafe mouthguards can be customized with stickers and team logos and are available in a variety of colors to fit the personality of every star athlete in your practice!
Production time: 4 working days in lab.
- Start with an accurate bite registration and void-free impression using a custom tray.
If an adjustment is required, the doctor may use an arbor band disc to adjust and then repolish with a butane flame. To re-attach a helmet strap, heat the end of the strap, insert into mouthguard’s keyway and then hold until cooled off. If there are any further questions or if a serious adjustment is needed, it is recommended to send the mouthguard back to the laboratory.
Ensure an accurate impression of all soft- and hard-tissue areas, especially the vestibule and peripheral areas. Capturing the vestibule areas is critical as this helps with proper retention and protection.
If a mouthguard is made for a patient with orthodontic brackets, the arch wire must be removed to allow for accurate impression. Or we can block out the brackets and wire prior to fabrication.
