Sports mouthguards are not all created equal. Only a professionally molded, custom made mouthguard will guarantee the best protection. To get you or your child a PlaySafe® mouthguard, we first take impressions of the upper and lower jaw. The sports mouthguard is then fabricated by dental technicians and then sent back to Smile Designers for you to pick up.
A verified PlaySafe® mouthguard always consists of several laminated layers (a minimum of two), your name and phone number permanently sealed inside the mouthguard and a hygienic carry case.
Why Wear a Custom Mouthguard?
Studies show that a Boil & Bite mouthguard provides a false sense of protection due to the dramatic decrease in thickness when the athlete bites it into place during its softened state (biting through). An original PlaySafe® sports mouthguard is always multi-layered and has a circulating protective border that prevents too large movements of the lower law in case of lateral impacts. There are many different Playsafe® types to choose from based on your age and sport, so discuss with your dentist which would be best for you.
