Starting at around $35.00, it is a cost effective way to protect children participating in youth sports.
Having the ability to customize to an athlete's mouth by utilizing our Self-Impression System (S-IS) to create a dental mold, our unique design of the LOWERguard can offer better protection without interfering with breathing or speaking. Made from our patented PolyShok Technology which absorbs over 150% more impact energy than Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA), the material used in other brands of mouthguards, helps reduce the risk injury.
Each Mouthguard Kit includes a mouthguard tray and impression putty; instructions on how to properly make an impression; a postage paid return shipping label (U.S. Customers Only) and a box to return your newly made impression; a FREE mouthguard carrying case; and a FREE Boil & Bite GAMEguard Mouthguard to be worn while your mouthguard is being created.

From your impression, a form-fitting mouthguard will be produced and shipped back to you. You should receive your mouthguard in 2 – 3 weeks. If you have questions or problems, please contact customer service.

PolyShok™ is a proprietary blend of plastic designed specifically for athletic mouthguards. It has the unique properties of being able to form to the mouth at low temperatures. This means, the mouthguard is softer, resulting in greater comfort, better breathability and absorbing more destructive force.
PolyShok™ has been A.S.T.M. (American Standards in Testing and Measurements) tested to be over 150% more shock absorbent than leading traditional mouthguard (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) materials. These results are reproducible in any A.S.T.M. certified lab in the country. Ultimately PolyShok™ transmits less pressure to the teeth, jaw and brain when it receives a concussive blow, better than other athletic mouthguards.
