This material gum shield offers complete fit and protection to junior users up to the age of 9. It provides basic protection with a tough single density protective shell, and is a self-fit mouthguard. It has unique patented fin technology. The Opro junior bronze gum shield model has 8 fins from the same material as the outer shell, as it is designed for younger users with smaller mouths and is smaller that the Opro shield range. These fins break down when you bite into them while fitting, and they help grip the teeth. In this particular mouthguard, drainage holes are included so that the water can run through and allow the mouth to be cooler when fitting. It is based on the Opro bronze gum shield model. The Opro junior bronze gum shields are the first mouthguards in the world to achieve CE TYPE certification to the latest standards. Comes with a gum shield container and a name label. This product is latex free, and not suitable for fixed braces.
This OPRO gum shield provides basic protection for the mouth, and reduces injury to the teeth, lips and gums. A gum shield is most often used to prevent serious injury in the case of contact sports. They can be worn for a number of different sports, such as rugby, boxing, hockey and football.
The gum shield will provide maximum protection against front and concussive blows, as the multi-layer construction and posterior buffer pads absorb shock.
Opro gum shields keep the palate clear for improved speech, and breathing.
Integrated posterior buffer pads offer unrivalled protection against oro-facial impacts, and protect the temperomandibular joint from traumatic injury.
Junior bronze gum shields are specially designed for children up to the age of 9.
Boil the water – for the best results, the boiling water should be poured into the cup when it is fully boiling, don’t leave the kettle to stand after it has boiled.
Pour the boiling water into the cup- immediately submerge the Opro shield mouth guard for 20 seconds.
Take the opro shield out of the boiling water (can use a spoon if necessary) and quickly rinse it under a tap or put it in a cup of cold water for a single second.
Immediately put it straight into your mouth. Bite tight together , and while holding your teeth tightly together, suck very hard. This forces your tongue into the inside of the Opro shield.
Carefully place the Opro shield in your mouth so it covers the upper teeth and firmly bite down. Keeping your mouth closed, force your fingers around your lips to mould the outside of the mouthguard. Use a firm, massaging movement, and keep it going until 30 seconds is up.
Now, take the mouthguard out, and rinse it thoroughly in cold water, either in a cup, or under a running tap.
