The probability of injuring a tooth without an individual mouth- guard is 60 times greater than if you are wearing one. 95% of all tooth injuries occur in young people aged under 21 years.
ABoil + Bite mouth-guard (self moulded) creates a false feeling of protection, because there is a dramatic reduction in thickness during adaptation.

2.nd soft layer: 1.5 mm
With its solid and precise fit, a custom-made safetydent mouth- guard lasts 10 times longer than a Boil + Bite mouth-guard, which is exposed to much higher masticatory loading due to slipping.
A study of American football shows that when a mouth-guard is worn, only 0.07% of all injuries occur in the mouth region. In basketball on the other hand, where mouth-guards are not worn, 34% of all injuries occur in the region of the mouth and teeth.

A May 1999 press release by Cologne University shows the advantages of a 3-layered mouth-guard.
