  • Custom Gum Shield for Your Sport

    Your teeth are unique from the length of your teeth to your gums. A conventional gum shield 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 your sport.

    We take impressions of your upper and lower jaw so that we can optimally adapt the sports gum shield to your teeth.

    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.

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

    Never lose another thought about your gum shield during training!

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

  • Better Breathing

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

How much are gum shields from the dentist?

Many dental practices have not updated their websites for years or do not provide prices. After years of inflation, it is therefore difficult to determine the exact costs. Our research in Germany has shown that high-quality gum shields, such as the ones we offer, generally cost around £300. This does not take into account the additional time costs of a visit to the dentist, such as getting there, waiting time and returning home.

However, we would like to emphasise that it is always better to incur these costs than to lose a tooth, as this would inevitably be much more expensive.

Hoch much do custom mouthguards cost?

Custom mouthguards are usually only available at the dentist.

How tight should a gum shield be?

A gum shield 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 gum shield 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 gum shield 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 gum shield on without it moving or becoming uncomfortable.
  5. Comfort and no gagging: The gum shield should not sit too far back to avoid gagging and should provide general comfort.
  6. Customisation: The best solution is a custom gum shield, 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.

Can you talk with a gum shield?

Yes, you can talk with a custom-made gum shield like Dental Armor's, but usually not with the cheap boil-and-bite versions from the internet.

The ability to speak clearly depends on the fit and design of the gum shield. A properly fitted gum shield should fit tightly without slipping, while still leaving enough room for tongue movement and easy breathing.

It may take some time to get used to the feel of the gum shield in your mouth and speech may be slightly impaired at first.

However, with time and practice, most people should be able to speak relatively normally with the gum shield in place.
