YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

WHO SHOULD WEAR A MOUTHGUARD?

Anyone that participates in a Contact Sport, where a player is likely to make contact with a hard object, is vulnerable to a dental injury. Our comprehensive range of mouthguards offer different levels of protection suitable for everyone, from children to professional sports players.

WHAT ARE THEY MADE OF?

The Playsafe Mouthguard is made from Erkoflex, a tough elastic thermoforming material formulated for the construction of custom-made mouthguards and complying with the requirements of the BGA and FDA This soft and flexible high impact absorbing polymer supports the teeth and protects the gums.

CAN THEY BE WORN WITH BRACES?

A Playsafe Mouthguard can be made to fit snugly over fixed braces, this will not only protect the teeth but also prevent the inside of the cheeks and lips from becoming lacerated by the wires of the brace in the event of an impact to the face - yet another advantage of wearing a Playsafe Mouthguard.

WHAT IF MY MOUTH CHANGES?

There is no need to buy a new mouthguard for slight changes in the mouth. They are adjustable to allow for changing teeth and orthodontic treatment. The Playsafe Mouthguard can be remoulded by your dentist to accomodate new teeth or movement of teeth.

CAN THEY PREVENT ANY OTHER INJURIES?

Yes, they can prevent concussion of the brain. The Playsafe Mouthguard is supplied with indentation in its biting surface to accomodate the tips of the bottom teeth so that in the event of an impact to the lower jaw it is safely immobilised preventing reverberation of the brain.

ARE THERE OTHER SAFETY FEATURES?

The player's name and a radio opaque strip are permanently sealed within. This avoids confusion as to the owners identity and enables it to be located by X ray in the rare event of it being swallowed. They also come with a free protective carrying case and care instructions.

WILL THEY LOOK GOOD?

How you feel affects the way you play. Many players report that PLAYSAFE's firm fit and zingy colours make them feel good during a game; and the boost to confidence caused by better face protection gives them that vital aggressive edge - within the rules, of course!
