Elastoplast Sport Mouthguard Adult Clear
Elastoplast Mouthguards are used to prevent injury to the mouth, jaw and teeth while playing high-impact or contact sports such as football, hockey, boxing or MMA (mixed martial arts).
Using a well-fitted adult mouthguard helps avoid the possibility of dental complications from sport and preserves the integrity of the gums, teeth and jaw.
The Elastoplast Sport Mouthguard is a â€˜boil and biteâ€™ product. It uses thermoplastic (BPA and latex free) that moulds to the shape of your teeth and jaw. This provides a snug fit and maximum support against impact.
