What are the different types of sports mouthguards?

When it comes to protecting your teeth during sports, there are various types of mouthguards to choose from. Let's take a look at some options:


Self-fit or boil-and-bite mouthguards

These mouthguards are super convenient and easy to use. All you need to do is heat them up in boiling water, and then bite down on them. This process allows the mouthguard to mould perfectly to the shape of your teeth, providing a personalized fit for maximum comfort and stability. Whether you're a pro athlete or enjoy recreational sports, a self-fit mouthguard lets you focus on your game without worrying about dental injuries. Click here to have a look at our collections. 


Mouthguards for braces

If you wear braces, it's essential to choose a mouthguard specifically designed for braces. These mouthguards are specially crafted to accommodate the brackets and wires, ensuring a secure fit and comprehensive protection. By shielding both your teeth and braces, these mouthguards minimize the risk of dental damage, giving you peace of mind while you're out there dominating the field or court.

Our Safejawz Ortho Series range is the most advanced Orthodontic gum shield on the market. It offers a full protective cover of the upper bracket with its trademarked BRACE HARBOUR, but it also integrates LOWERBLOK™ which helps to protect the lips and inner cheek against the lower bracket (if the wearer has one).


Dual-layer mouthguards

Want the best of both worlds? Dual-layer mouth guards have got you covered. They feature a softer inner layer that provides cushioning and ultimate comfort, along with a durable outer layer for enhanced impact resistance. With this combination, you can enjoy optimal protection against dental injuries while still prioritising comfort and easy breathing. Whether you're an adult or a junior athlete, dual-layer mouth guards are suitable for both.

The Safejawz Extro Series is our best-selling range, popular for its awesome designs on the front and market-leading comfort & fit. Athletes are trying more and more to stand out from their peers and find new ways to show their personalities as they perform. SAFEJAWZ® gives wearers that freedom - Protection with Personality.


Stock mouth guards

If you're looking for a quick and easy solution, stock mouth guards are a popular choice. These ready-to-wear mouth guards come in different sizes and can be found at lots of sports stores. Because, they aren't moulded to your mouth individually, they do have a reputation of being quite uncomfortable.


Custom-fit mouthguards

These mouthguards are crafted by dental professionals using an impression of your teeth. By creating a model of your unique dental structure, a mouthguard is then tailored specifically to fit your teeth perfectly.

Investing in a high-quality mouthguard not only safeguards your oral health but also enhances your sports performance. So, when selecting a mouthguard, remember to prioritise your safety and choose a trusted brand like Safejawz, as we're always dedicated to innovation and athlete protection.
