Roller Derby Equipment

There are many features that will distinguish the Denta-Gard from other mouth guards. When choosing roller derby equipment, an effective roller derby mouth guard is a key element and most would say it is a critical component of the selection process.

Choosing the best roller derby mouth guard can be confusing. With the following information, our goal is to clarify differences between mouth guards so you can make an informed choice on this important oral protective appliance.

 

The Denta-Gard roller derby mouth guard has these outstanding features:

    • Worn over dental braces –  The Denta-Gard does not counteract an orthodontist’s technically and precisely planned movement. Therefore, preserving corrections and adjustments your orthodontist has scheduled.
    • Concussion reduction – This is an important, but controversial subject. There are no clinical trials to support the statement that a roller derby mouth guard will protect against concussions. One theory is that a mouth guard should dissipate and/or absorb the force of an upward blow to the jaw. It should be approximately 4mm in thickness on the occlusal surface. Denta-Gard has these properties. In addition, cushioning between upper and lower teeth can be effective at reducing the incidence or severity of concussions. Denta-Gard provides that level of cushion protection.
    • Protects both upper and lower teeth – Why wear a mouth guard that only protects half of your teeth? The unique design of the Denta-Gard protects both upper and lower teeth at the same time.
    • Allows open mouth breathing – As a result of the natural spring hinge on the Denta-Gard roller derby mouth guard allows open mouth breathing and understandable speech.
    • Comfortable to wear – Soft and pliable, yet strong and tough. The Denta-Gard is comfortable to wear. Athletes tend to wear it more consistently than other roller derby mouth guards.
    • Virtually indestructible -Athletes tend to chew down the ends of commonly used hard plastic mouth guards, as a result, coaches and trainers are unable to determine if the guard is now offering protection. Denta-Gard is virtually impossible to chew through. Because of its comfort, most are not tempted to remove it intermittently and therefore do not even try to chew it.
    • Latex and BPA free – The Denta-Gard mouthguard is latex and BPA Free.
    • Made in the USA – Denta-Gard is made in the USA with FDA approved materials.

The Denta-Gard does not fall into the standard three mouth guard category types listed below.

  1. Stock mouth guards: Inexpensive and can usually be purchased at most sporting good stores. Little can be done about their poor fit.  In most cases you can not wear this mouth guard with braces. They only cover the upper teeth and are usually bulky and make breathing difficult. They provide very little to no protection. Therefore, Dentist typically do not recommend their use.
  2. Boil and bite mouth guard: Can be purchased inexpensively at most sporting good stores. Made of thermoplastic material that you place in boiling water, then shape around teeth with your fingers. In most cases can not be worn with braces. Covers the upper teeth only and are usually bulky and uncomfortable. kids tend to chew the ends down which eliminates any cushioning benefit.
  3. Custom fit mouth guard: Usually purchased from your Dentist, they are expensive and typically cost $300.00 and up. Consequently, in order to protect both upper and lower teeth you will need to purchase two custom fit guards.
