Be proactive about your child’s health
Sports mouth guards are the only piece of equipment that an athlete puts in his body. And it’s far from sanitary. Now, there is a product that can be used during competition when the contamination occurs, when the mouth guard is in and out of an athlete’s mouth.
Since the rinse solution is alcohol-free, it is safe to use frequently. The suggested rinse routine for Defense Sport is to rinse 1x before, 1x during, and 1x after games and practices. This way the athlete will begin with a clean mouth guard, end with one, and maintain the cleanliness throughout play.
If you are concerned about mouth guard contamination, the answer is an easy rinse away. Why take the risk of not sanitizing your child’s mouth guard?
As Defense Sport strives to raise awareness on the very real health concerns associated with dirty athletic mouth guards, they invite parents, athletes, and coaches to spread the word with them and help make Defense Sport available to booster clubs, sports teams, and local retailers.
