  • Custom Children's Gum Shield

    Kids' teeth are unique from the length of the teeth to the gums. A conventional gum shield can therefore not offer optimal dental protection.

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

    We take impressions of the upper and lower jaw so that we can optimally adapt the kids gum shield to their teeth. This means they are also protected against side blows.

  • 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 child's dental health.

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

  • Better Breathing

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

    Experience the difference in comfort and performance with our sophisticated kids gum shield.

How should a gum shield fit for kids?

A kids 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 kids 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 kids 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 kids gum shield on without it moving or becoming uncomfortable.
  5. Comfort and no gagging: The kids gum shield should not sit too far back to avoid gagging and should provide general comfort.
  6. Customisation: The best solution is a custom kids gum shield, such as the one from Dental Armor, which is precisely adapted to the shape of their teeth and jaw and custom-made by a specialist.

Where can I buy a gum shield for kids?

Gum shields for kids are available in a variety of places:

  1. Sports shops: Many sports shops stock a range of kids gum shields.
  2. Online retailers: Websites such as Amazon offer a quick solution with a wide range of cheap gum shields.
  3. Dentists: For a customised gum shield, you can go to a dentist. These are more expensive but offer the great fit and protection.
  4. Dental Armor: The ideal solution for anyone who is looking for a high-quality kids gum shield 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 child's your teeth and send it back. A dental technician then creates the customised kids gum shield and delivers it directly to you.

Which gum shield for kids?

Choosing the right gum shield for kids depends on various factors:

  1. Comfort and fit: a gum shield 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 kids gum shield 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 kids gum shield.
  3. Personal preferences: Some kids prefer gum shields 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 kids?

A gum shield for kids 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 kids gum shield 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: Kids can concentrate better when they are less worried about mouth injuries.

A gum shield is therefore an essential part of kids sport protection.
