Fierce Mouthguards come in various layers or levels depending upon what sport is being played and the necessary level of protection required.
Level 1: 3.0mm with one layer, designed specifically for children with mixed dentition.
Level 2: 3.0mm with two layers, perfect for wrestling, volleyball, mountain biking and motocross.
Level 3: 3.5mm with two soft and one hard layer, specially designed to provide maximum comfort and protection for all sports.
Level 4: 5.0mm with 2 layers, ideal for soccer, rugby, basketball, softball, rollerblading and skateboarding.
Level 5: 5.0mm with two layers and special power bands, designed for baseball, football, racquetball, martial arts and boxing.
Level 6: 5.0mm with 2 soft and one hard layer, fabricated for ice, field and street hockey along with kick-boxing & other heavy contact sports.
- Lip, cheek and chin lacerations
- Broken teeth
- Displaced teeth
- Permanent jaw joint injury
- Neck injuries
Upper and lower models are needed, including a bite registration of 3 mm thickness at a rest position. To get the most accurate oral fit, an opposing model and bite is necessary. Without an opposing, the doctor may need to do adjustments and there will be no cuspid indentation.
Ensure an accurate impression of all soft and hard tissue areas, especially the vestibule and peripheral areas. Capturing the vestibule areas is critical as this helps with proper retention and protection.
If a mouthguard is made for a patient with orthodontic brackets, the arch wire must be removed to allow for accurate impression or the brackets and wire can be blocked out prior to fabrication.
- Precision occlusal indexing
- High-impact energy absorption
- 3.0 to 5.0 mm of protection
- 10X more protection than off-the-shelf mouthguards
Indicated for patients who need protection during sports activity. It is ideal for those who have an orthodontic situation, such as braces, and must wear a mouthguard for preventative measures.
Fierce mouthguards are not to be prescribed in lieu of nightguards or TMJ splints.
Start with an accurate bite registration and void-free impression using a custom tray.
Currently, the ADA recommends mouthguards for the following sports:
- Martial Arts
- Water Polo
- Weight Lifting
- Ice Hockey
- Field Hockey
With the increase in both the number and cost of sports-related trauma to the teeth, athletes and people in general, are seeking both the most up to date technology and comfort available in a mouthguard.
Researchers are actively studying how mouthguards may aid in reducing the severity and number of concussions by helping to absorb and disperse the impact of a severe blow to the chin,
face, or head.
