It was reported that 13 - 39% of dental injuries are sports-related costing people upwards of hundreds of dollars per visit! Choosing to jump on theJiu-jitsu bandwagon has its benefits but it does not fall short of risks! In this article, we explain the benefits of having a mouthguard and why you should go with the options presented here at Impact!
Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a rough sport and athletes that participate in it are going to need protection for their most prized possessions, their teeth.
Here at Impact, we specialize in handcrafting custom mouthguards that are built to last and get the job done! Our mission is to continue to protect athletes in all contact sports and make the top of line custom mouthguards that could still be consumer friendly!
From lacrosse to weightlifting, we have you covered!
For those that train in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu the likelihood that you can experience some damage to your mouth is high. Going with a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth is a much safer option than going with the regular plastic you can find at your local Walmart! Our guards are to fit your mouth and only your mouth!
Creating a custom mouthguard that will protect your teeth for all your training purposes has never been easier!
We will send you a kit in the mail with the impression materials and a return label. Follow the directions in the pamphlet we send you and slap the return label back on! Once we have processed your molds, the mouthpiece will be on its way to your doorstep!
Going with a custom mouthpiece is a great option for those that want something more personalized, are serious about their training, and are serious about protecting their teeth!
However, the custom mouthguard may not be the best option for you if you have braces or looking for a cheaper option. In these cases, we recommend theQuickFit mouthguards!
QuickFit mouthguards are Impact’s spin off of the traditional boil n bite mouthguards you are probably used to. But here at Impact, we do things a bit differently!
Our QuickFit mouthguards are made from the exact same materials as our custom fit mouthguards. The QuickFits are great for folks in braces or kids whose teeth are still shifting. The secret reason for this is, it’s remoldable! Yep, that’s right, you are able to remold the QuickFit mouthguard up to 5 times as your teeth and dentition begin to change.
The process of molding your Impact QuickFit mouthguard is super simple. Just warm up some water on the stove (make sure it's not too hot) , drop the guard in the water and let it get soft!
Once soft, just bite down! Now you are ready to take on all matches without any worries! Check out our latest pricing for all guards now!
We know that jiu-jitsu is a very physical sport, and the importance of having a mouthguard that is reliable in times of need is crucial for your protection or your child's protection! Join the thousands of people who trust impact to protect their teeth on the mats!
