  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Mouthguard

    Your teeth are unique from the length of your teeth to your gums. A conventional mouthguard can therefore not offer you optimal dental protection.

    Dental Armor has a specially adapted shock and impact-absorbing layer to offer you the best possible protection for BJJ.

    We take impressions of your upper and lower jaw so that we can optimally adapt the BJJ mouthguard to your teeth.

  • Made to Measure in Germany

    Our laboratory is located in Northern Germany and we source the material for your gum shield exclusively from Germany.

    Your gum shield is personally crafted by our owner Andreas Valtingojer, who has more than 30 years of experience in the dental industry.

  • Ultimate Comfort

    No more falling out, no more choking, no more shortness of breath, and no more sore gums! 

    Never lose another thought about your mouthguard during BJJ training!

    Dental Armor even makes talking a lot easier and drinking will no longer be an obstacle.

  • Better Breathing

    Our innovative design makes the BJJ mouthguard thinner at the back of the mouth, allowing you to breathe more freely.

    Experience the difference in comfort and performance with our sophisticated BJJ mouthguard.

How should a mouthguard fit for BJJ?

A BJJ mouthguard must fit properly to provide optimal protection and comfort. Here are the key elements for a good fit:

  1. Tight fit to the teeth: The BJJ mouthgurd should stick firmly to your teeth without having to hold it with your tongue or lips. It should not wobble or be loose.
  2. Even pressure distribution: It should distribute pressure evenly across all teeth to ensure maximum protection and comfort.
  3. Clear airway: The BJJ mouthguard should not obstruct breathing. Adequate airways are crucial for endurance and performance.
  4. Speaking and swallowing: You should be able to talk and swallow with the BJJ mouthguard on without it moving or becoming uncomfortable.
  5. Comfort and no gagging: The BJJ mouthguard should not sit too far back to avoid gagging and should provide general comfort.
  6. Customisation: The best solution is a custom BJJ mouthguard such as the one from Dental Armor, which is precisely adapted to the shape of your teeth and jaw and custom-made by a specialist.

Where can I buy a mouthguard for BJJ?

Mouthguards for BJJ are available in a variety of places:

  1. Sports shops: many sports shops stock a range of BJJ mouthguards, especially those that specialise in combat sports.
  2. Online retailers: Websites such as Amazon offer a quick solution with a wide range of cheap BJJ mouthguards
  3. Dentists: For a customised BJJ mouthguard you can go to a dentist. These are more expensive but offer the best fit and protection.
  4. Dental Armor: The ideal solution for anyone who is looking for a high-quality BJJ mouthguard but doesn't want the high cost and hassle of a visit to the dentist. With Dental Armor, the impression material is sent to your home. You simply take the impression of your teeth and send it back. A dental technician then creates the customised BJJ mouthguard and delivers it directly to you.

Which mouthguard for BJJ?

Choosing the right mouthguard for BJJ depends on various factors:

  1. Comfort and fit: a mouthguard should be comfortable, fit well and not impede breathing. "Boil-and-bite" models are inexpensive, but do not offer the same level of protection and comfort as a custom BJJ mouthguard from Dental Armor.
  2. Material and quality: Cheaper models can be less comfortable and wear out more quickly. Dental Armor only uses materials from Germany for its BJJ mouthguard.

Personal preferences: Some BJJ practitioners prefer mouthguards with specific designs, colours or brands. However, it is important that style is never prioritised over safety.

What are the benefits of a gum shield for BJJ?

A mouthguard for BJJ offers several important benefits:

  1. It protects the teeth and jaw: It prevents teeth from being damaged or knocked out and protects the jaw from fractures.
  2. Shock absorption: The mouthguard absorbs and distributes the force of blows to the face, reducing the risk of injury to the mouth and jaw.
  3. Cuts prevention: It helps prevent cuts to the lips and oral mucosa that can be caused by teeth.
  4. Brain protection: By cushioning blows, it can indirectly help reduce the transmission of shock waves to the brain, reducing the risk of concussion.
  5. Improve concentration: BJJ practitioners can concentrate better when they are less worried about mouth injuries.

A mouthguard is therefore an essential part of BJJ protection.
