How does a sports mouth guard work?

When fitted properly, a mouthguard should in theory reduce the risk of concussion as well as protect the teeth, jaw and skull from serious injury. A NXTRND™ mouthguard works as a shock absorber when impact is made to the mouth, jaw or head area by dissipating the impact forces and increasing the separation between the upper and lower teeth. 

In the past, the thickness of a mouthguard's material correlated directly to its ability to absorb energy, however, today it is no longer necessary to wear thick uncomfortable mouthguards. Innovations in material density have made it possible for us to create slim mouthguards boasting superior protection.

In order to create what we believe to be the safest and most comfortable mouthguards on the market we have utilized these advancements to our advantage. Increasing material density has allowed us to reach the same energy absorption capacities as thick guards even though ours are half the thickness and easily moldabe.
