More than 5 million teeth are knocked out in sporting activities each year. While this number is staggering, the American Dental Association estimates that more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented every year thanks to the use of PlaySafe® sports mouthguards.
Laboratory-made PlaySafe® sports mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection during sports activity. When worn properly, they can prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth or concussions. They are also indicated for patients with an orthodontic situation, such as braces, who must wear a mouthguard for preventive measures.
PlaySafe sports mouthguards provide superior fit and retention compared to boil-and-bite mouthguards. Available in six levels of protection, the mouthguards range from one to three layers of laminated ethylvinylacetate material with a final occlusal thickness between 3 mm and 5 mm. PlaySafe mouthguards can be customized with stickers and team logos and are available in a variety of colors to fit the personality of every star athlete in your practice!

PlaySafe is the most prescribed mouthguard in the U.S., Europe and Australia.
While many sporting good stores sell mouthguards, these versions are not as effective as the PlaySafe sports mouthpiece offered by your dentist. That’s because store-bought mouthguards cannot be altered and require you to keep your mouth clenched for maximum protection. PlaySafe, however, is made using an exact duplication of your mouth and will stay in place with no effort. This gives you the ability to put your attention where it belongs: on the game!
