There are a few simple things you can do to keep your LITHOS PRO® clean:
If you’re exposing your LITHOS PRO® to water, take care and ensure the water is only room temperature. If the water is too hot, that can cause your mouthguard to become distorted and no longer fit you properly.
Make sure your LITHOS PRO® is completely dry before storing it in a clean case, which ideally will have holes or vents that allow the mouthguard inside to breathe.
Makura’s mouthguards are suitable for players of any sport, contact and non-contact. All of our products are CE certified and have achieved Level 2 and Level 3 Impact Resistance through independent testing.
The LITHOS PRO® boasts the highest level of impact resistance (Level 2) attainable for ready-made mouthguards. It features a SHOKBLOKER® body for maximum shock absorption and SLIPSAFE pads that prevent it from slipping while the jaw is closed.
Remember: whatever your sport—no matter your level or how often you play—a mouthguard is always the right move when it comes to protecting yourself from contact-related injuries.
No, our mouthguards do not contain any harmful materials. As part of the CE approval process, all of our mouthguard products (including the LITHOS PRO®) undergo innocuous and chemical testing to ensure the materials they contain won’t hurt or negatively affect our users.
The specific standards that apply to mouthguards are:
Though not required as part of the CE certification process, we can also confirm that our mouthguards contain neither Formamide nor Bisphenol A (BPA).
Wearing braces doesn’t mean you can or should stop using a mouthguard whilst playing sports. If anything, it becomes more important to choose a braces-compatible mouthguard that will not only protect your teeth and mouth from soft-tissue injuries, but also safeguard the braces themselves. Without the protection of a mouthguard, a blow to the face can damage brackets, wires, and other fixed orthodontic appliances, resulting in costly dental bills for treatments.
The LITHOS PRO® is our ready-made mouthguard created specifically to be worn with braces. It features the ORTHO CHANNEL®, which fits carefully and securely over your braces to keep them protected and you comfortable.
The LITHOS PRO®, our ready-made mouthguard for use with braces, does not need to be boiled or custom fitted. Simply place it in your mouth and carefully fit it over the braces, ensuring your braces are aligned with the ORTHO CHANNEL® of the mouthguard. Your mouthguard should fit securely and comfortably when it’s properly positioned.
Depending on factors like how intensively it’s used and how well it’s cared for, your LITHOS PRO® mouthguard can last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years. In the majority of cases, though, we’d recommend replacing your mouthguard at least once per year. This will maximize both its effectiveness and hygiene.
Yes, you can reshape your LITHOS PRO®, though the number of times will vary due to factors including its type, its age, and how intensively it’s used.
Simply follow the fitting instructions for the LITHOS PRO® mouthguard. If you find that it no longer conforms properly or comfortably to your mouth, it might be time to purchase a new one.
No, mouthguards do not prevent concussions or other types of mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs). Past studies have attempted to prove a link, but the evidence has never been strong enough to demonstrate a conclusive one.
What mouthguards do excel at is reducing the impact of dental and orofacial traumas like broken, chipped, dislodged, or impacted teeth as well as contusions, abrasions, and lacerations.
