Play a wind instrument?
Brace Guard Lip Protector has been the gold standard for brass and woodwind
musicians for over 28 years.
was developed by an orthodontist and a university trumpet professor!
You mix the ingredients together to form a custom
orthodontic comfort guard which lasts for months, with proper care. Brace Guard is also a great alternative as a custom-made lip protector for light contact sports to protect the lips and gums from laceration.
Guard kit contains enough material to make approximately five
guards. (There is enough material for one set of guards to cover all of the top and bottom teeth for sports purposes, such as wrestling). Easy and complete mixing and application instructions are
included with the kit. When finished, the guards
are medium pink (approximately color of your gum tissue). They fit securely over your
braces until you take them off.
In addition to musicians,
people with lingual braces can benefit from Brace Guard, since its pink color blends
with the inside of the mouth. Non-musicians with "regular" braces may also find
Brace Guard useful in certain situations where its color is not an issue. Athletes: Brace Guard is a great lip protector for light contact sports where mouthguards are not required!
Each kit includes an oblong hard plastic carrying
case for the finished Brace Guard. It is not recommended to wear this product while eating or sleeping.

If you play a horn or wind instrument, Brace Guard is invaluable. You can help your kids make a custom guard, and it will be like a little chemistry experiment, because you are actually forming a polymer when putting the two ingredients together!
This product was invented by a trumpet teacher, and musicians have been using it for over 28 years, so you can be confident that it will work well for you or your child.
When you are making the guard, follow the instructions very carefully. Otherwise, you could make one guard but spoil the remainder of the material, preventing you from making additional guards (if the two ingredients mix together prematurely, they will harden in the containers!)
