Sports mouthguard in Pirmasens
Sport should be fun and not provide additional dangers. We advise you on the appropriate mouthguard, from field hockey match to kickboxing!
Many manufacturers offer inexpensive mouthguards, but they do not provide the necessary force distribution due to poor retention. These so-called "boil & bite" mouthguards are heated and the athlete bites into the mouthguard. However, such a mouthguard wears out just as quickly and subsequently offers no support at all and possibly even prevents breathing during sports.
A good mouthguard hardly affects the athlete, has a good fit and thus prevents any impairment of breathing or speech.
The PLAYSAFE® mouthguard acts as a combination of cushioning and force distribution. The incoming blow is partially dissipated and the residual energy is distributed over the entire extent of the mouthguard. In this way, the force is not only unloaded on the anterior teeth but also distributed to the molars.
In order to ensure this force distribution in this way, a good fit of the entire mouthguard is necessary.
The PLAYSAFE® mouthguard achieves the high force distribution by laminating the relatively soft, extremely impact-resistant "Erkoflex" material.
PLAYSAFE® offers four different types of mouthguards (light, medium, light pro and heavy-pro). Depending on your sport, we will offer you the appropriate mouthguard.
To this end, we ask the counter question. What are your teeth worth to you? It is significantly cheaper than the restoration of a broken tooth. The cost of the mouthguard depends first of all on the type of PLAYSAFE® mouthguard, which we manufacture individually for you. As a rule, the material and laboratory costs amount to approx. 100-150 €. However, we will be happy to provide you with a personal cost estimate.
