Some people think all mouthguards are the same. They’re not!
In fact, we don’t even like to call ours a mouthguard — it’s a Gladiator®. That’s because a Gladiator is pressed and hand-cut on an exact model of your teeth. A Gladiator feels like a part of you — it’s a true custom fit.
The “custom” in custom mouthguards actually refers to the fit, as the most important characteristic of a mouthguard is the way it fits the athlete’s mouth. Why is that? It’s simple; mouthguards are meant to protect the mouth and jaw from impact, but if a mouthguard isn’t in the right place at the right time, it won’t provide the proper protection.
Only mouthguards that are designed to fit the exact mouth structure of each individual athlete stay in the right place at all times. That’s what makes them custom.
A true custom mouthguard starts with an impression of your individual mouth structure. This makes it possible to produce an exact stone model of your mouth to form the guard on, which ensures the mouthguard is a perfect fit.
Once an impression is complete and the stone model is made, the actual mouthguard is engineered. True custom mouthguards are engineered for each specific athlete. In order to match each player’s mouth, each mouthguard needs to be cut and formed differently from the next. That’s why Gladiators are cut by hand.
Everyone’s mouth is different. Their mouthguards should be too.
Before the Gladiator Self Impression Kit was available, you would have had to visit a specially-trained dentist to get a custom-fit mouthguard of this quality. With the revolutionary Gladiator Self Impression Kit, just follow a few simple steps and you’re on your way to wearing the best protection possible.
In as much time as it takes to brush your teeth, you will have completed the process and be on your way to receiving your custom mouthguard.
