In this time of travel teams, swing instructors and sports psychologists, few parents think twice about dropping a couple hundred dollars to keep their kid suited up in the latest cleats, skates and gear. A recent study by TurboTax estimated that the average parent spends $671 per year to cover the costs of organized sports. Yet for all of the money invested in gear, far too many young athletes are using mouthguards that provide little or no protection. The best—and some would say only—option is a custom fitted sports mouthguard. The key to getting everyone onboard, from proud parents to weekend warriors, is to frame the appliance as an essential piece of equipment. Because it is.
“Get Intact and Get in the Game”
Intact Smiles custom appliance fabrication provides all the reliability of Essix® and Dreve Plastics combined with the performance of the Drufomat Scan pressure thermoforming machine. No other custom sports mouthguard fabrication system can match the Intact Smiles combination of precision fit, function and performance. Customers can pick their favorite color of plastic and then customize it by adding their own text or images.
Some might ask “why should a specialist like an orthodontist focus their energies on sports mouthguard fabrication?” But the better question might be “why haven’t they already done so?”
Intact Smiles appliance fabrication makes it easy to offer a wide selection of sports mouthguards.It includes a full range of options for low, medium and high-contact sports, as well as optional straps and cases. Players can personalize their sports mouthguard with team/player name, number and logo.
Intact Smiles sports mouthguards are made using a Drufomat Scan pressure thermoforming machine. Unlike some pressure machines that flip the plastic over, thus angling the material over the model, the Drufomat drops it straight down, helping to assure an appliance with consistent thickness. It uses pre-programmed barcode scanning and an intuitive keypad to make the process precise and accurate. With the Drufomat Scan, you get state-of-the-art technology in custom fitted mouthguards, custom orthodontic retainers, and custom night guards fabrication.
