Starguard – Serious Mouth Protection
Our mouth guards can be personalised for no extra charge. Company ,School , Club &Team Sponsors logos can be inserted during the lamination process. All mouthguards have the owners name inserted for easy identification. A colour chart is supplied for download to allow patients to choose colours. Mouth Guards can be made in a combination of colours and with added designs eg Fangs and slogans.
We believe that every dentist wants to do the very best for their patients. That is why we introduced Starguard, to meet the growing demand for a custom laminated mouth guard that offers the highest level of protection available.
Why choose a laminated mouth guard?
The lamination process allows each Starguard to be prescribed to an optimal thickness for each age, sport and level of competition. They can also be customised to take into account orthodontics, mixed dentition, missing teeth and anatomical variations of Class I, II and III dentitions.
The result is a mouth guard with proper incisal and occlusal thicknesses of between 3-5mm depending on the design.
Starguard mouthguards are manufactured by high heat and 6 atmospheres of pressure, resulting in the precise adaptation of the material to the mould. All the memory is eliminated from the material ensuring that the mouth guard will not deform when worn for long periods of time. Speech and oxygen uptake are not impeded.
The materials used in the manufacture of Starguard have a shore hardness of 80 and are completely bio-compatible. Each Starguard has the elastic modulus to absorb shock but is tough enough so that under a hard blow it will not split. It is also precision balanced for the proper occlusal force distribution necessary to minimise concussions.
Tests have shown that custom laminated mouthguards can provide up to 10 times the level of protection of self fitting mouthguards and 5 times the level of protection of vacuum formed mouthguards.
Bite registrations are checked to ensure some contacts of the upper teeth.
