NEW YORK, NY | January 15, 2019 – GuardLab®, a custom mouthguard brand known for using innovative 3D digital scanning and 3D printing technology announces today the first ultra-thin semi-custom mouthguard for their APEX™ Collection, named APEX™ Lite.
Designed as ultra-thin, low-profile and made from soft, yet protective & absorbent dental grade materials - the APEX™ Lite is characterized as simple, pure and effective. It is ideal for light contact sports, including basketball, wrestling, hockey, football, soccer, lacrosse and more. The APEX™ Collection now includes 2 thicknesses (APEX™ and APEX™ Lite) and a variety of colors and designs.
By joining the growing faction of N.B.A. players who choose to wear a mouth guard in games, a player is forced to confront a certain small issue: Where do you keep the thing when you’re on the bench?
Mason Plumlee of the Nets tucks his mouthpiece inside one of his socks, which he acknowledged is “not the most sanitary place in the world.” Rajon Rondo of the Dallas Mavericks has been observed spitting his straight down through the collar of his jersey — though where it lands, exactly, has remained something of a mystery. Cole Aldrich of the Knicks often takes the curved, wet plastic and hooks it around one of his ears.
