Boil-and-bite mouthguards are basically big chunks of rubber that make it hard for athletes to breathe or talk. They’re uncomfortable, which is distracting to players during a game and they don’t provide the proper protection for which they’re intended. Frankly, if it were up to your players, they simply wouldn’t wear them — and oftentimes, they don’t; leaving their chewed up like gum, unrecognizable rubber chunk on the field or in their locker. Players certainly don’t view mouthguards as part of their team apparel.
While mouthguards may seem like an afterthought piece of equipment, they have the ability to not only help prevent serious injury, but enhance the performance of your team and give your players a valuable piece of team apparel.
With a completely personalized mouthguard — from color and logo to name and number — your athletes don’t just get another piece of equipment, but a new item of team gear they value as much as their jersey. It gives them an identity. Every Gladiator® custom mouthguard with a player’s personalized name, number and team logo instantly becomes a favorite piece of their uniform and an essential component of completing their game face.
When your players are at their locker preparing for game time — after they pull their jersey over their pads, tie their shoes or skates, put on their eye black — that last phase of the ritual becomes placing their very own custom mouthguard in their mouth. And their game face is complete. It’s game time!!
That’s something that doesn’t just get left behind on the field.
And because Gladiators are proven to outlast a boil-and-bite mouthguard 5-to-1 — and all replacement Gladiators are up to 50% off for the life of the model — you get the value you need too. That makes your Gladiator more than just a mouthguard, but an investment in your players’ protection.
