PlaySafe® Sports Mouthguards
Laboratory-made PlaySafe® sports mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection during sports activity. When worn properly, they can prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth. They are also indicated for patients with an orthodontic situation, such as braces, who must wear a mouthguard for preventive measures.
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!
- Brush and floss your teeth before placing the appliance in your mouth.
- Clean your appliance after every use with a denture toothbrush and toothpaste under cool water. We recommend Dentu-Crème® or Fresh’n Brite®. If a white film starts to form or to eliminate odors, soak appliance in denture cleaning solution (Polident®, Efferdent®).
- After cleaning, rinse appliance under cool water. Completely air dry before storing.
DO NOT soak the appliance in mouthwash or alcohol. DO NOT place in hot or boiling water or expose to excessive heat, as this will distort the appliance.
Start with an accurate bite registration and void-free impression using a custom tray.
