WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CUSTOM MADE MOUTH GUARD AND A GUMSHIELD YOU CAN MOULD YOURSELF?
A self moulded or boil ’n’ bite gumshield is not nearly as reliable or protective as a custom made gumshield. The custom made gum shield is used making impressions of your teeth, so it fits YOU perfectly. They are more comfortable to wear, whilst being tight enough to hold in your mouth. Boil ’n’ bite gum shields can fall out easily and sometimes they become hazardous – for example they can be swallowed or impede breathing. Custom made gum shields also carry the recommendation of major sporting bodies like the Rugby Football Union, as well as companies such as the British Dental Association.
