Since man has engaged in competition there has always been the desire to train harder, to dominate, and to succeed where others have failed. High Performance mouthguards take athletes to a whole new level of compete as they not only reduce the risk of injury but also may enhance athletic performance.*
It is our belief and driving philosophy that the mouthguard an athlete chooses is at least as important as their other protective gear, or even more so. The mouthguard an athlete chooses to wear should be considered as critical in their protection as their helmet, footwear, or padding.
