GUM SHIELDS AND MOUTH GUARDS

Gum shields are not only used to protect the teeth and gums, but are important in protecting the skull during contact sports, and therefore reducing damage to the jaw and reducing the chances of concussion.

While many rugby players may choose to have a custom gum shield, those who opt for a "boil in the bag" style mouth guard need to be aware of how to mould a gum shield to fit it effectively.

While the Opro Shield Mouth Guard has become a market leader in the field of Rugby, where personalised gum shields have been used in the marketing strategy, Shock Doctor is gaining ground and the Mueller mouth guards are a low cost alternative.

Opro Shield Mouthguard Fitting Instructions:

 
  • Allow a bowl of boiling water to cool for about 30 seconds
  • Put the mouth guard in the water for 40 seconds. Then remove safely.
  • The gum shield must be soft and flexible. If it is not put it in the water for 10 more seconds. This may require freshly boiled water.
  • Before putting it in the mouth allow it to cool sufficiently. Fit the gum shield around the upper teeth, biting down firmly, while performing a strong sucking action.
  • Mould the gum shield to the shape of the teeth with the fingers, pressing the edges into the teeth and gums. This should take about 30 seconds.
  • Remove the mouth guard and hold it under a tap with cold water for about 1 minute.
  • When re-fitted, the gum shield should stay in place and feel comfortable.
  • If it does not, then repeat the process.
