An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Any enthusiast of contact sports worth his or her salt should understand that old adage. The Power Play Mouth Guard is one such device that takes off the worries and significantly reduces the risks of injuries that occur in the mouth.

Studies on sports and recreational injuries among teenagers in the US indicate that slightly above a third of all dental trauma are related to contact and collision sports. The same report indicated that a significant number of mouth injuries could be prevented by use of a mouth guard.

Don’t play the Russian roulette with your oral safety

So, if you are involved in sports that involve contact such as football, boxing, martial arts or those that have high risks of falls, Power Play Mouth Guard is a must have piece of athletic equipment. The Power Play Mouth Guard is a boil and bite kind of mouth protectors.

Fashioned from FDA approved thermoplastic that the consumer boils and bites to get a custom fit. All this being achieved without the extra cost of a dental visit.

Reasons as to why I am smitten by Power Play Mouth Guard

Let’s start by setting the record straight. I am not a pro-rugby player, but I have years of amateur rugby experience under my belt. I understand the pain of biting your own lip and tongue after being knocked down by 238 pounds of human flesh and bones. Trust my description of the aftermath pain associated with the oral and facial injuries.

Custom fit without the extra cost of a dentist. The power mouth guard having been fashioned from a copolymer that is malleable in water temperatures of up to 70oC. The next part is my favorite. Molding the power guard to a perfect fit by biting and pressing against the copolymer. Voila! I am ready to face my opponents on the pitch.

Yell and talk with the power play mouth guard in place.

If you think that talking is not a plus with your mouth guard on, try having a stock mouth guard on. The fact that dentists don’t recommend them should send you a clear warning message. Breathing and talking are restricted since you have to clench your teeth together to have the guard in place. A phenomenon that is alien with the power mouth guard since its custom made to fit squarely over your teeth and gums.

Mind your oral hygiene

A secure fit in your mouth with minimal restriction of talking and drinking means less need to handle the power mouth guard with sweaty dirty fingers during a match game. Consequently low risk of contamination.

A mouth guard case included with every purchase of power mouth guard ensures that you conveniently store your mouth guard piece in a hygienic setting.

Points of reservation against Power mouth guard

Consumers have a right to information. I believe it would make a lot more sense if the producers and marketers of Power Mouth Guard informed us of what kind of copolymer constitutes the mouth guard. Telling us what it is not (Latex-free and BPA-free) and boldly stating that it’s approved by FDA is suspect.

Power Play, at one point, used to send product instructions via email vs. with the mouth guard in an effort to keep things green. This has been a common theme of disgruntlement among verified purchases at Amazon.

However, Power Play is a company that stands by its customers and heard their plea and have restored sending the instruction manual with the product. It was a great idea, but people are such creatures of habit that alarm bells and suspicions are automatically raised when packages are received without the tiny print piece of paper.

Verdict

The power mouth guard will currently set you back $8.99 at Amazon as of writing this review. Factoring the cost and ease of molding without involving a dentist, its safety, comfort and its ability to virtually be tailored to fit any sports participant above the ages of 11, the power mouth guard makes a compelling value proposition.

I would recommend it to contact sports participants yet to go –pro who are in need of protecting their teeth and jaws from collision impact.
