Item Description
This Lip Protector is a flexible clear lip bumper shield that covers the front of your brackets from one end of your mouth to the other, protecting your lips and gums. It is a very popular product used as a mouth protector for wrestling practice in schools. The outside of the device is smooth, and the inside contains soft flexible double hooks that attach to your arch wire. If the hooks don't align perfectly with the spaces between your brackets, you can cut them off with scissors to create a custom fit. Caution: may present a choking hazard if used while sleeping. Please note: this product is not returnable due to health regulations.

The Lip Protector is a great choice for musicans or people who play sports where a mouthguard is not necessary, but comfort and protection from laceration is a factor. It's also a great product for "braces newbies" who desire a little extra help in those first uncomfortable weeks of orthodontic treatment. This product works best on arch wires that are relatively straight.

Each set of Lip Protectors is housed in a convenient plastic storage box, and contains two shield strips, one for the top teeth and one for the bottom teeth. Instructions are included. Buy two sets and save!

Insertion Instructions: You can use either Lip Protector strip for your top or bottom teeth. Starting in the middle of your mouth (midline), lightly press the hooks that are on the inside of the Lip Protector onto your arch wire between your brackets. If a set of hooks does not line up, simply remove them with scissors. Continue pressing the Lip Protector onto the remainder of the arch wire, removing hooks as necessary for a custom fit.

My son is a high-school wrestler, and we struggled to find something to protect his cheeks from his braces. He was given a mouthguard from the orthodontist, but struggled to breathe properly while using it. Most matches, he wasn't using anything. It was not uncommon for him to be bleeding frequently during and after matches from the braces cutting him. Another mom on the team recommended this product, and I bought it from my phone at a tournament! We had it within four days, and he said it makes a huge difference. His only complaint is that they are a little tough to get on, but they stay in place and we will continue to use and recommend them.
