What’s the difference between a health professional custom fitted mouthguard and a chemist/sports store boil and bite mouthguard?
The Dental Health Foundation and the Australian Dental Association strongly recommend dental impressions be taken of your teeth. From that mould of your teeth a professional individually designed mouthguard can be manufactured to give you the best chance of your teeth and bones surviving a big hit or a wayward ball or stick. A boil and bite mouthguard is not recommended, it is false economy buying a cheap over the counter product. It is difficult to fit with a risk of burning your mouth, they can make you gag and it is uncomfortable to wear by not staying in place making it almost impossible to talk and breathe. Players have been known to choke during sport after swallowing this type of product and as they do not fit well the teeth that they touch are more prevalent to be knocked out on impact.
Performance Mouthguards provide a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE, if you cannot breathe, talk or feel comfortable wearing the mouthguard in the first month we will refund your money.
