Athletes with braces need something better than ordinary mouth guards. The Shock Doctor Braces Mouthguard is designed specifically for these athletes. Constructed of 100% medical-grade silicone, this guard is both durable and comfortable. The silicone doesn't further irritate gums and teeth that are already sensitive from braces. This guard also has an integrated ortho channel that protects the mouth from lacerations. You don't have to boil the guard thanks to Insta-Fit technology.
