Opro Custom Gum Shield



Considerable time has been spent recently in designing a system, which allows you to take impressions of your own teeth in a home molding kit. We post this system to you, you takes your own impression (with parental assistance if appropriate) fill in the form and pop it back in the box provided and into the addressed envelope. Once the mouth guard is made, it gets posted straight back to you. A simple, yet highly effective system!

Also included in the pack is a Bronze mouth guard in Black to be used while waiting for your custom to arrive, usually within 10 working days.

For a fully custom design (100's to choose from) and colour (over 15) you can visit the OPRO website and select multi colours and patterned designs for an additional £5, choose a heavier weight mouth guard for up to £10 and add a packet of 20 OPRO Refresh mouth guard Cleaning Tablets. On paying for additional designs you get a conformation number to enter on the form.

OPRO Mouth guards are used by all players in all 12 of the Zurich Rugby Union Premiership Teams. You can't get a much higher recommendation that that!

With no mouth guard, a blow to the lower face sends shock waves through the skull. A direct impact can fracture the front teeth. However other blows, particularly to the lower jaw, can cause other damage. A blow to the lower jaw can slam the jaws together and the sudden impact of the relatively sharp lower teeth into the back of the upper teeth is like a chisel, causing a fracture of the upper teeth by punching them forwards.

In some cases, the transmitted forces can lead to a fracture of the lower jaw, or will travel through the jaw joint (TMJ) into the base of the skull causing a concussion.

Opro Custom Mouth guards act like a shock absorber, both spreading the force over a larger area and increasing the time for the peak force to occur. Dissipating the energy of the blow over a larger area and longer time reduces its effect and preventing or vastly reducing any injury.

The impression Putty is a commonly used high grade dental impression material. Material Safety Data Sheets are available on request.

Every Opro Custom Gum Shield is laminated. That means it is made from two or more layers, which are formed over the plaster cast of the mouth, one after the other. This ensures that certain areas which can be quite thin in single laminate mouth guards, get a generous covering - particularly important over the tips of the front teeth.

The final laminate is always clear which means that we can incorporate each person's name in the mouth guard, and then seal it in. This is absolutely vital as it, helps prevent loss of the mouth guard, as everyone else will know it's yours and prevents you from trying to put someone else's mouth guard in your mouth. It wouldn't fit anyway, but you would be at risk of cross contamination.

Each OPRO Gum shield is individually shaped, and OPRO look closely at the design to ensure that it is as comfortable, and unobtrusive as possible. That's why literally 10's of 1,000's of sports people now wear the Opro Custom Mouth guard.
