What makes Gladiator the industry leader in custom mouthguards? Simple: Gladiator custom mouthguards don’t just give you the most protective and comfortable mouthguard possible, but a mouthguard that’s specific to your sport and actually enhances your performance. And Gladiator offers so much more:
With a custom fit Gladiator, your mouthguard is always right where it needs to be if you take a blow to the mouth or jaw. That means your mouthguard is absorbing the maximum amount of impact and protecting you from serious injury. After all, mouthguards guard mouths.
Because your Gladiator is designed to fit perfectly, it allows for better airflow. That means more oxygen and more oxygen means maximum performance and endurance, as you’ll be faster, stronger and last longer than your opponent. But that’s not the only competitive edge you’ll get from a Gladiator.
Gladiator’s Power Grip® is an additional build up of material under the molar surface of the Gladiator Pro giving you a place to add your lower jaw impression. This upgrade is engineered to grab, move and lock your lower jaw into a slightly forward position for better protection and a true athletic advantage. Kinesiology studies show this technology yields 17% gains in extremity strength, with less stress on the temporomandibular joint. That means your body is more relaxed for greater range of motion, flexibility and balance.
Some people may say you shouldn’t wear a custom mouthguard over braces. Well, those people don’t have Gladiators. Gladiator has developed the Ortho-Channel®, a special adaptation to its patented design just for braces. The Gladiator Pro for braces fits over the brackets and wires without inhibiting orthodontic treatment or alignment.
Not all mouths are created equally, which is why it’s important to have a mouthguard designed to fit your exact mouth structure. With an individually engineered Gladiator, your mouthguard fits intimately against your upper teeth, allowing for optimal airflow and the ability to breathe, drink and speak clearly — which certainly helps if you play a team sport.
Gladiator custom mouthguards let you create your own identity. From team colors and logos to your own name and number — and even some intimidating designs — your custom mouthguard shows your opponents what motivates you.
Chewing on your mouthguard leads to rips and tears in the guard, and rips and tears have the ability to cause gum and tissue irritation, which in time may become infected. Recommended for chewers, the Raptor® is a material upgrade for the Gladiator Pro that’s a denser material, not thicker. The denser material provides more resistance to chewing, keeping the mouthguard safe without sacrificing any comfort.
Proper mouthguard protection starts with a minimum of 4 mm of material in the important impact zones — the areas in the front of the teeth and under the molars. However, these zones change from sport to sport. Based on your sport and the structure of your mouth, your Gladiator will have one of three sport-specific cuts:
Are you a coach, athletic trainer or team parent? Then you have more things to worry about than ordering mouthguards — like planning for the next game! With Gladiator’s Protection Program, the ordering process is completely streamlined, taking the administrative burden off your shoulders.
