PRO-FORM SPORTS GUARDS: The Unsung Hero of Athletic Performance

History and Innovation…

In the realm of sports, one name has consistently stood out as the epitome of superior intra-oral protection—Pro-Form Laminate Sports Guards. These exceptional mouthguards have a rich history dating back to their inception in 1967, born from the innovative mind of a dentist with a vision for safeguarding the smiles of professional hockey and football players. The Pro-Form Laminate was developed with the unwavering commitment to provide athletes with not just protection but also unparalleled comfort. 

What sets Pro-Form apart is its unique two-layered construction. This groundbreaking design was a game-changer in the industry, as it offered a level of retention, protection, and comfort that far surpassed other available materials. This innovation quickly elevated the Pro-Form Laminate to the status of the industry standard for mouthguard materials among professional sports players.


Did You Know The Pro-Form ‘Button’ Serves a Purpose?

One of the distinctive features of Pro-Form Laminate Sports Guards is the incorporation of a palatal brace. Without realizing it, many people trim away this portion of the laminate, often unaware of the significant advantages it offers when utilized correctly in the creation of custom sports guards.

This built in component plays a crucial role in enhancing the functionality and effectiveness of the mouthguard. It's a specialized addition designed to provide extra stability and support to the Pro-Form Laminate. During custom fabrication, the palatal brace is strategically positioned approximately 3mm from the incisal edge, behind the front teeth on the upper arch, offering several key benefits:


Enhanced Retention: The palatal brace helps anchor the mouthguard securely in place, reducing the risk of it slipping or dislodging during intense physical activities. This ensures that athletes can focus on their performance without the distraction of constantly adjusting their mouthguard.


Improved Protection: By distributing the force of impact more evenly across the mouth, the palatal brace enhances the mouthguard's protective capabilities. It helps dissipate impact forces and reduces the risk of dental injuries, making it an indispensable feature for athletes in high-impact sports such as boxing, MMA, rugby, and football. 


Increased Comfort: Contrary to traditional mouthguards, the Pro-form palatal brace is designed to fit comfortably on the upper palate without causing discomfort or interfering with speech, as it’s built into the laminate’s layers. Athletes can breathe and communicate freely, further enhancing their performance on the field.


Continued Innovation:

Since its early days, Pro-Form has remained committed to excellence in intra-oral protection for athletes of all ages and caliber. Dentists have continually reviewed, upgraded, and modified Pro-Form Laminate Sports Guards to adapt them to a variety of intra-oral applications. This dedication to innovation ensures that athletes across various sports can benefit from the latest advancements in mouthguard technology.
