Laboratory-made PlaySafe® Sports Mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection during athletic activity. When worn properly, they can prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth. They are also indicated for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, including braces, who must wear a mouthguard as a preventative measure.
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 Sports 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.
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.
