ProForm Sports Mouthguards
Custom made, professional grade ProForm mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection, retention, comfort and fit, without interfering with speech or breathing during play. Custom mouthguards have the advantage over boil-and-bite types of mouthguards because of their superior fit and retention. In addition, these mouthguards are thin, comfortable, custom fitted and will retain their shape long after other mouthguards have worn out.
Custom fitted sports mouthguards reduce the incidence of tooth breakage by distributing the stress of impact to the entire length of the tooth. This feature is provided by a double layer of laminated sheet vinyl with a lingual plate imbedded behind the incisors. Tensile strength, softness, compression percentage and uniform density are all important characteristics of mouthguard materials. ProForm maintains these characteristics using a heat/pressure laminating process. Tensile strength of the laminate is excellent due to the laminate’s two layers of materials making up the mouthguard. Density is maintained at the pressure laminating process so shrinkage of the mouthguard is uniformly controlled.
According to the American Dental Association, mouth guards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and college football alone. What most people don't realize, is that mouth guards are indicated not only just for football, but many other sports as well. Many broken front teeth due to baseballs or softballs have been reported. Many people are also injured while playing indoor sports where trip-and-fall accidents result in an elbow to the face or even a mouth that breaks the fall onto a gym floor.
The ADA recommends athletic mouthguards for children, teenagers, and adults involved in such activities as hockey, football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball, softball, rollerblading, skateboarding, martial arts, boxing and mountain biking. Although do-it-yourself, “boil and bite” mouthguards can be found in sporting goods stores, they are not nearly as effective as the custom fitted mouthguards.
