"With IMPACT, apart from the amazing quality of the mouthguard, the sign-up process for us as a club worked really well. All done online, payment taken care of and personalised when they were delivered for ease of handing out meant the whole process worked really smoothly for us as a club from start to finish."

About us

Sportsguard Laboratories is proud to partner with IMPACT Gumshield (Dublin, Ireland) to bring state-of-the-art 3D mouthguard technology to North America.

Since 1996, tens of thousands of SLI mouthguards have been made for over forty professional sports organizations. Many professional athletes trust our high-quality mouthguards in all the major sports as well as youth/amateur sports stars.

As a dentist, Dr. Dan Brett, DDS, saw firsthand the injuries athletes sustained by not wearing mouthguards and the expensive costs associated with oral-facial correction. As a sports enthusiast, Dr. Brett was driven to develop a professional custom-made athletic mouthguard that offered protection without compromising comfort and affordability.

Here at Sportsguard, our top goal is to provide custom-fitting mouthguards for athletes of all ages at any level of competition by using state-of-the-art technology at affordable prices!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the process work?

  • We send you a Self-Impression System (S-IS) kit for you to make a dental mold of your mouth/teeth
  • To create your 3D printed custom fit mouthguard, we use state-of-the-art dental imaging technology to take a 3D scan of your impression
  • Once we have your scan, we run it through our unique mouthguard software
  • This process creates a printable 3D mouthguard file
  • We then send your file to print on one of our 3D printers
  • Your mouthguard is printed with our patented 3D plastic filament

How long does it take to receive your mouthguard?

Once we receive your impression (and our techs review for quality), we will print and send your mouthguard in 7-10 working days (excluding major holidays)

Rush service and expedited shipping are available for additional fees

Why buy a custom fit mouthguard?

In order to understand why a custom fit mouthguard is the best form of oral protection, we need to compare them against the other types mouthguards on the market stock and boil & bite mouthguards


  • Are preformed and come ready to wear
  • They are inexpensive and can generally be purchased in sports shops
  • Little can be done to adjust their fit, they are bulky, can make breathing and talking difficult, and they provide limited protection
  • Dentists do not recommend their use


  • Bought in sporting stores and are relatively inexpensive
  • Formed on the teeth with the use of finger, tongues and biting (hence the name)
  • Protection is decreased if bitten too hard while forming
  • Biting in to a single layer Boil & Bite does not offer total teeth coverage which results in inadequate protection
  • Does not create a vacuum fit when formed so it is lose fitting and will fall out when a player speaks or opens his mouth (which usually means it ends up in a player’s pocket or sock!!)
  • Biting into a one size fits all boil & bite can distort the guard and interfere with the tongue which results in restricted breathing


  • Are designed and based on a person’s individual dental scan
  • They offer the best protection against dental and oral injury
  • They offer a more secure and comfortable fit
  • They do not affect a player’s performance i.e. breathing and speech are unaffected when playing
  • The American, British and Irish Dental Association recommends wearing a custom fit mouthguard to protect against dental injuries, mouth lacerations and fractures to the upper and lower jaws
  • The American Dental Association also states that wearing a custom fit mouthguard reduces the chance of dental injury by at least 50%

Why buy a Sportsguard mouthguard?

  • All our mouthguards are individually engineered from a 3D scan of your mouth
  • With our patent-pending software and 3D printing filament, your mouthguard is printed to an accuracy of 100 microns (the width of a human hair) to ensure a perfect fitting mouthguard
  • We use our own 3D printing filament that we have developed specifically for the printing of mouthguards to ensure the highest levels of protection
  • Based on independent testing our mouthguards offer at least 15% more impact absorption than other custom fit mouthguards on the market
  • You can choose from one of ten colours for your mouthguard

What materials are your mouthguards made from?

Our mouthguards are made from our unique plastic that we have developed over the past 3 years. The plastic was developed with the sole purpose of offering maximum protection and comfort for anyone who wears our mouthguards. The plastic has also been independently tested by AIT (Athlone Institute of Technology) CSID and the test results show that it’s free of toxins and carcinogens.

How do you know your mouthguards offer up to 21% more protection than other mouthguards?

AIT (Athlone Institute of Technology) CSID in accordance with the American Dental Association standards carried out impact absorption testing on our 3D printed mouthguards versus other suppliers of custom fit mouthguards. The results  showed  that our mouthguard had a minimum of 16% more Impact absorption versus other leading suppliers and went as high as 27% in some cases.

What about retail mouthguards, are they as good?

Definitely not! They are ill-fitting, don’t stay in the mouth and offer little to no protection for athletes who where them.  The clear recommendation of the American, British and Irish Dental Association, is that only custom fitting mouthguards should be worn.

How long does a mouthguard last?

This varies according to many factors, e.g. growth, usage etc. Normally a growing child would require a new mouthguard once a year. Although the teeth and bones may be growing, the mouthguards are flexible and can accommodate some movement. Older children and adults may not grow, but the mouthguards will wear down with use and should be checked annually.

How do I clean/care for my mouthguard?

  • To help increase the longevity of your mouthguard NEVER CHEW YOUR MOUTHGUARD
  • Rinse your mouthguard with water before wearing and after each use
  • Keep in storage case when not in use
  • Periodically light brush it with a soft toothbrush and warm water
  • Use only dental appliance cleaners for soaking/cleaning. DO NOT use alcohol-based products.
  • NEVER boil your mouthguard. It will lose its shape

What age are our mouthguards suitable for?

As soon as a child has an adult tooth appearing they should be wearing a custom fit mouthguard.

We have created a custom fit mouthguard for children as young as 5 but normally we start making mouthguards from age 7 and upward

My child has missing or loose teeth?

No problem. Our technicians automatically check the 3D models for teeth which are yet to erupt and create extra space for the new teeth to erupt in the mouthguard file that we print for them.

What colour can I get my mouthguard in?

You can choose from one of the following colours:

  • White
  • Black
  • Grey
  • Blue
  • Light Blue
  • Red
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Purple
  • Pink
  • Orange

How much does it cost for a second or replacement mouthguard?

If you have gotten a scan from us before then the cost of a second or replacement mouthguard starts from just $50.00 not including shipping. Please note this offer is available only if we are using your previous scan to produce the mouthguard

What happens if I cancel my order?

In the event of a cancellation, your payment will be refunded to the same card you purchased with, minus a $10.00 processing fee.
