The Shock Doctor Braces Mouthguard is designed for athletes wearing orthodontic braces. It is designed to comfortably conform to the brackets of upper jaw braces and to avoid lacerations while doing so.
It is made with 100% medical grade silicone and will adapt to changes in the structure of the mouth as the braces do their work. These are strapless braces. As they are made from silicone, the user will not have to boil these braces to fit them.
Dental injuries can be extremely expensive to repair, and wearing a mouthguard is an inexpensive way to offset this risk. In addition to braces, mouthguards can help to prevent damage to bridges and other orthodontic appliances.
Mouthguards like this one are recommended for protection of teeth, gums and tongue in sports like baseball, basketball, football, hockey and many others. In addition to helping to prevent injuries to the teeth, gums or mouth, they can help prevent concussion injuries. They absorb some of the shock of a direct blow to the jaw, which reduces the amount of shock to the brain.
