Product Description

Each gumshield comes with a case and instructions for use.

When taking part in contact sports, wearing a gumshield can help protect against injury to the mouth and jaw. Different sports involve different levels of risk and potential injury therefore it is essential to select a gumshield that will offer you protection, fit comfortably and will stay in place. However it is important to remember that no gumshield will completely eliminate the risk of injury, but this risk is significantly reduced from not wearing one at all.

Warning: Boiling water, minors must be supervised at all times.

  • Fill a suitable container with boiling water and allow to cool for 30 seconds
  • Place the gumshield in the water for 40 seconds. Do not exceed this time. Remove with a suitable utensil
  • The gumshield should look and feel soft and pliable. If not replace the gumshield in the water for a further 10 seconds. Please note: if the water has cooled too much then the gumshield will not get soft enough to mould, if you are not having any success start again with freshly boiled water.
  • Before moulding allow the gumshield to cool to a suitable level. Carefully place the gumshield around the upper teeth, bite down firmly, while sucking in strongly, and use your fingers to press the edges of the gumshield into your teeth and gums. Continue this process for 30 seconds.
  • Remove the gumshield and cool under a running cold tap for 1 minute. The gumshield must be cold before replacing in the mouth.
  • Replace the gumshield into the mouth and test for fit and retention. The gumshield should not fall out of its own accord, and should feel comfortable; if this is not the case then the above steps can be repeated.
  • If after repeating the moulding process discomfort is still experienced, do not use

Important Warnings:

  • Do not chew your gumshield
  • Do not wear your gumshield if it is showing signs of wear, cracks or splits, if this is the case please dispose of your gumshield and replace with a new one
  • Do not allow any person other than the named user to use the gumshield.
  • Do not expose your gumshield to extreme heat or direct sunlight, always store in the box when not in use
  • Parents – please check the fit of your child's gumshield regularly to ensure that it is not conflicting with the development of the mouth and teeth.
  • If you have a brace or other device fitted to your teeth it is advised to consult your dental surgeon or orthodontist as to the suitability of the gumshield. Never wear a gumshield with a brace unless it has been approved by the person fitting the brace.
