One of the most common injuries in any combat sport discipline are dental injuries, in particular during MMA and boxing. Choosing a mouth guard to keep your teeth protected is a small investment that will go a long way in preventing those injuries. At Made4Fighters, we are committed to ensuring that our female fighters are taken care of. We offer a range of mouth guards in a diverse range of colours and designs to choose from. In our women’s protective gear range, we supply the very best MMA mouth guards & gum shields from top brands like Venum, Opro & Shock Doctor.
Mouth guards will last for a long time provided if they are adequately taken care of. Not only for hygiene purposes but to ensure that they continue to provide the care you rely on, time and time again. After each use, thoroughly clean your gum shield with a toothbrush or special rinse formula. When not in use, store your gum shield in a protective case which will prolong the life-span. Ensure that any debris and bacteria has been cleaned from the mouth guard. Water won’t be sufficient to sanitise it. It’s also imperative that you recognise when it is time to replace your mouth guard. There are clear signs of wear and tear that confirm this. Regularly check for cracks and rough patches that irritate your gums.
It's absolutely imperative that you look after your mouth guard, and not to treat it as an afterthought. Your MMA gum shield will last much, much longer if you follow these care tips. Thoroughly clean your mouth guard after every use, making sure to brush out debris and bacteria with a toothbrush or specialised rinse. Simply running water over it won't effectively sanitise your mouth guard. In addition to maintaining your mouth guard from a hygiene perspective, it’s vital that you can also recognise the signs of wear and tear, so you know when it’s time to throw out and replace your used mouth guard.
