The TEPHRA MAX®’s three-layer design features FLEXICORE® technology for maximum shock absorption, a SHOKBLOKER® outer, and a GELFORM® liner for supreme comfort. It’s CE approved and certified (click here to access the certification document [PDF]) by SATRA and boasts the highest level of impact resistance and protection for mouth-adapted mouthguards (Level 3).
Our TEPHRA MAX® mouthguard is available in one size (senior) for users age 11 and over and comes in three different colour combinations:
Delivering a custom fit for maximum comfort.
Softened gel creates a precise mould of the teeth for a secure fit.
Improves breathing while the jaw is closed.
Absorbs and diffuses frontal and transverse impact.
Raised areas on the underside prevent slipping while the jaw is closed.
Provides reinforced strength and additional protection.
All of our mouthguards are CE certified by an independent third party.
TEPHRA MAX® mouthguards are supplied with light, durable cases to help keep them safe and clean when they’re not in use. As per regulatory processes, all CE-approved mouthguards must come with storage cases that have been drop tested to ensure they won’t snap open while falling or upon landing.
There are a few simple things you can do to keep your TEPHRA MAX® clean:
If you’re exposing your TEPHRA MAX® 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 TEPHRA MAX® 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 TEPHRA MAX® boasts the highest level of impact resistance (Level 3) attainable for mouth-adapted mouthguards and is often the most suitable for full-contact sports like boxing, MMA, rugby, American football, and ice hockey. Its three layer design—the SHOKBLOKER® outer, FLEXICORE® inner, and GELFORM® liner—delivers maximum shock absorption and comfort.
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.
The TEPHRA MAX® is available in one size:
Ultimately finding the right size mouthguard is a highly personal process influenced by the size of your mouth, its shape, and your own individual preferences.

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.
For mouth-adapted BOIL & BITE® styles like the TEPHRA MAX®, it’s crucial you follow the guidelines for your specific mouthguard. The principles are the same between each one (they need to be boiled, shaped, and cooled), but the details (how long you need to immerse them in hot water, for example) vary. To ensure the best fit, you must fit your mouthguard properly and as instructed.
Depending on factors like how intensively it’s used and how well it’s cared for, your TEPHRA MAX® 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 TEPHRA MAX®, 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 TEPHRA MAX® 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.
