4 Reasons Why Custom Mouthguards Are A “Must Have” For Your Team
Is there a piece of athletic equipment that is an absolute “must have” for your team? Sure, certain things like helmets, pads or mouthguards are required to be worn, but is there a certain type that you should definitely be purchasing?
Short answer: yes. Longer answer: not all gear is created equally. Take mouthguards for example; the design of boil-and-bite mouthguards hasn’t changed since the 1960s, while the engineering and construction of mouthguards has greatly advanced since that time.
With that in mind, let’s look at four reasons why Gladiator custom mouthguards are a true “must have” for your team:
1. Team Discounts
As you likely know, purchasing equipment for a team gets expensive. Not only do you have needs for the athletic gear you buy as a coach or athletic trainer, but each individual athlete has their own needs as well.
That’s why Gladiator is happy to offer team discounts, starting at 10% off for a minimum of 10 athletes. Our goal is to make it easier for you to provide the best protection possible for your team.
2. Easy Reorders
Similarly, as a customer courtesy, Gladiator keeps team order stone models in-house so that your reorders are as fast as possible and save you money on shipping!
This also removes the need for each athlete to keep their models safe, guaranteeing you access to discounted reorder prices for life. One simple email and your athletes’ mouthguards are back into production with all the same details and shipped to you in no more than 2 business days!
3. Communication Is Key
In order to be successful, teams need to be able to communicate clearly. That’s where custom mouthguards become a huge advantage for your team.
Gladiators are made with the “X-Treme Cut,” a patented special mouthguard cut design that allows for maximum comfort by removing all of the material where the athlete doesn’t need it, leaving material only in the important impact zones. That allows your players to speak, breathe and drink with ease, while also increasing their abilities, as the optimal oxygen flow enhances performance.
4. Stay Protected
The best ability is availability, which means you need your team healthy and ready to compete.
Athletes have a 33-56% chance of receiving an orofacial injury — an injury to the mouth or face — during their career. With more than 5 million teeth knocked out each year during sports and recreational activities, keeping them protected from oral injury is a key part of protecting your players.
