Help Patients Prevent Painful and Costly Injury

Laboratory-made PlaySafe Sports Mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection during athletic activity. When worn properly, they can prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth. 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 ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) material, with a final occlusal thickness between 3 mm and 5 mm. PlaySafe Sports 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!


Experimental comparative study of various mouthguards - Hoffmann - 1999 - Dental Traumatology

“When, on testing the Heavy Pro gum shield, the appropriate amount of force was exerted at the edge of the middle incisor, the lowest amount of deflection was recorded at three levels of impact force (250 N, 350 N, 500 N) (Fig. 4). The Heavy and Medium shields came in second with nearly the same cushioning effect. Compared with the user-fitted boil-and-bite shield (Top Ten) the Playsafe Light shield showed a significantly better effect. The poorest cushioning effect was recorded for the Macho boil-and-bite shield.”

Playsafe mouthguard validations

Most mouthguards are inadequate and do not produce optimum protection. I suggest that you strongly consider using laminated pressure-formed or injection-molded mouthguards. I also suggest that your use of laminated pressure-formed mouthguards made by your staff will add a very valuable service for your patients, and be a new profit center for your practice.

Policies & Warranty

NO-FAULT REMAKE POLICY: Glidewell is pleased to process all remakes or adjustments at no additional charge if requested within the warranty period and accompanied by the return of the original appliance.

LIMITED WARRANTY/LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Glidewell (“the lab”) warrants that all dental devices (a “device”) are made according to your specification and approval in the belief that the device will be useful and MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Subject to the return of a device that is placed and then fails, the lab will repair or replace the device without charge for the cost of materials and workmanship or refund the original price paid, at the lab’s option, for up to 6 months for PlaySafe Sports Mouthguards.


Clinical Tips

Start with an accurate bite registration and void-free impression using a custom tray. Make sure that the impression captures all of the soft- and hard-tissue areas, with special attention to the vestibule and peripheral areas. Ensuring that the vestibule areas are captured is crucial because it helps with retention and protection. For a patient with orthodontic brackets, the arch wire must be removed to allow for accurate impression. The laboratory can also block out the brackets and wire prior to fabrication.

If the clinician determines that the appliance requires an adjustment, an arbor band disc can be used to adjust the appliance and then repolish it with a butane flame. A helmet strap can be re-attached by heating the end of the strap, inserting the strap into mouthguard’s keyway and then holding it in place until it cools. If a larger, more extensive adjustment of the appliance is required, the clinician should send the mouthguard back to the laboratory.
