Athletes with braces, both young and old, need good protection. ShockDoctor provides some of the best mouth guard protection on the market today. It's a favorite of dentists and coaches, alike.
Shock Doctor Braces Mouthguards are made of 100% Medical Grade Silicone which is very comfortable in the mouth -- much more comfortable than a traditional plastic mouthguard! An Integrated Ortho-Channel fits securely over your braces, protecting your mouth from lacerations and providing an instant fit. Breathing channels through the center of the mouthguard allow for free flow of air and easier breathing. Because the silicone "bounces back" between wearings, the mouthguard never needs to be "re-fit," even after your braces are adjusted. No boiling or custom fitting is ever required. It offers much more protection than a little lip protector, especially for high contact sports.
This Shock Doctor DOUBLE Braces Mouthguard is designed to protect both upper and lower teeth. It meets NFHS wrestling requirements. It comes in two types: with quick-realease strap, or without strap. Latex-free. (For a mouthguard that protects only upper teeth, see the Shock Doctor Single Braces Mouthguard).
This braces mouthguard satisfies the National Federation of State High School Association (NFHS) requirements. Order Youth size for people ages 11 and younger, or Adult size for people ages 12 and older. Available in two colors: blue or pink. Full instructions are included with the product.

Clean your mouthguard regularly to prevent bacterial buildup. If your mouthguard begins to smell, wash it with warm soapy water or soak it in Retainer Brite for 15 minutes. You may also find Cleanse Freshen Go Retainer wipes helpful.
If you or your child play contact sports, such as wrestling or mixed martial arts, it's important to have the right mouthguard. When you have braces, a mouthguard does double duty: it protect the teeth from impact, and it also protects the mouth from lacerations caused by your braces! Mouthguards also protect your jaw and your brain from sudden facial or cranial impact. Mouthguards are required for many contact sports because they just make good sense!
If you're not sure which type of mouthguard to get, ask your team coach and your dentist or orthodontist.
