GuardLab: A Clear Winner for Basketball Mouthguards

Basketball is all about precision and accuracy. You need to make your shot count every time you shoot. But there’s more to this game than making precise passes and draining accurate buckets. 

Basketball can also get surprisingly physical — if the ref can’t see it, a player will attempt to get away with it. 

NBA player and GuardLab Brand AmbassadorMason Plumlee, knows this well. He and other players, like Steph Curry, have taken enough elbows to the face to know that dental protection is worth it. That’s why Plumlee and other professional and college basketball players, such as the UNC Chapel Hill team and the Toronto Raptors, rely on GuardLab’s basketball mouthguards to protect their teeth.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BASKETBALL MOUTHGUARD:

Our most popular choice for basketball athletes is a clear, thin basketball mouthguard. Designed specifically to be light weight with no obstructions while breathing, talking or drinking water. Our APEX LITE mouth guards are engineered to be low profile, while you shine on the court.  

Our innovative APEX BITE PATTERN is pre-indented into each APEX Guard and contoured like a real custom mouthguard, so you’ll have less distractions and more protection while playing. Further, younger players can protect themselves with a basketball mouthguard for braces, ensuring their dental work remains safe.
