WHY CHOOSE IMPACT
DENTAL DESIGNS

Founded by Dentists and Elite UFC Fighters, we offer customized protection far superior to anything else on the market.

Going through our custom molding process, your guard will conform to your unique dental anatomy providing a better, more comfortable fit than over boil and bite guards.
Our guards extend higher into the vestibule under your lips to provide additional protection beyond the teeth, including tooth roots, alveolar bone, soft tissues of the lips and gums, as well as the TMJ.
This tighter fit gives better retention meaning it’s harder to dislodge even when breathing through your mouth or taking a heavy shot in combat sports.
This can greatly reduce the incidence of traumatic brain injury and decrease the changes of being knocked out in the cage.
By taking the functional anatomy and occlusion into consideration, we can reduce the impact on your TMJ which decreases the direct force on the brain.

WHY YOU SHOULD STOP USING CHEAP OVER THE COUNTER BOIL AND BITE MOUTHGUARDS
⪼ Inadequate thickness of material
When you mold a boil and bite guard, you are unintentionally thinning out the material at the biting surfaces of your teeth. This is exactly where you need the thickest amount of material possible. The result is that you aren’t getting nearly enough padding between the upper and lower teeth which not only puts you are risk for tooth damage, but allows for larger forces to be applied directly from your TMJ, to the skull, and to the brain. 
⪼ Poor retention
Over the counter guards are only molded around your teeth and do not take the rest of your oral anatomy into consideration. This leads to having to clench your teeth together to keep the guard in place, which can distract you from your athletic performance, as well as make it difficult to breath. For this reason we often see them dislodge when breathing through the mouth or when taking a blow in combat sports. 
⪼ Degradation over time
OTC guards quickly fail and loosen up over repeated use. IDD guards are meant to withstand increased pressure and wear and will often last several seasons or years.
WHY A DENTIST SHOULD DESIGN YOUR MOUTHGUARD
We take the functional anatomy of the TMJ joint into consideration with every design. Creating an ideal separation between the posterior teeth moves the mandibular condyle out of the glenoid fossa in your skull. That increased distance decreases the force of impact on your skull which can reduce the incidence of traumatic brain injury. To give a reference, an ideal separation is between 4 and 6 mm. Most boil and bite mouthguards have a separation of less than 2mm.   
By incorporating your occlusion (the way your upper and lower teeth fit together) into your custom guard, we can get added stabilization of the head by head and neck muscles. Due to the thickness and elasticity of the material, athletes can safely clench down on them during competition.

This clenching activates various head and neck muscles which stabilized the head. Concussion specialist Dr.Karen Johnston states that, “the force require to concuss a fixed head is almost twice that of a mobile head.” 

Further studies show that intracranial pressure is more than halved when an athletes clenches down on a mouth guard during traumatic events. 
WHY A UFC FIGHTER SHOULD DESIGN YOUR MOUTHGUARD
Since a mouthguard is one of the few pieces of protective equipment allowed in the cage, they’ve given you every advantage possible.

Besides adding their personal style to our artwork and custom designs, they've ensured that you can breath easily, and that they stay in when taking even the hardest of strikes or breathing through your mouth.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING ONLY THE HIGHEST QUALITY MATERIALS?
Our guards are molded over concentrated heat and pressure insuring a uniform thickness of material throughout the entire guard. Why is this important? By having a uniform thickness of material, a force applied to the head or neck is applied evenly throughout the entire guard which helps dissipate the force of the blow and minimize damage. This also means that our guards will last several times longer than our competitors.
