Information on Custom Mouthguards
You’ve been practicing for months for your big show. You’ve spent hours each day honing your skills and memorizing the notes. The longer you practice you begin to notice that you’re not as sharp. Your lower lip begins to tremble from fatigue and your bottom teeth tear into your lip. Now you’ve got a real problem with your lip damaged as your show is just a week away. For horn players and reed musicians, this is a common concern and one that can be solved with a lip guard.
Sporting Smiles has developed a custom-fit lower lip guard for our musician customers who are looking for protection against the all too familiar feel of lip fatigue during their sessions. Whether you are practicing for the first chair, jamming with your friends in a band session, or playing in a professional orchestra, you might fall victim to lip fatigue where the musician bites into the lower lip while they are playing. This can become a serious cause for concern as wear from fatigue can tear into your lip skin potentially causing permanent nerve damage in the lips or increasing the fatigue in the lip leading to sloppy play where the musician misses notes or falls off the pace.
Our lower-lip guard was designed specifically for reed and horn players who want protection from lip fatigue while they play their instruments. The custom fitting lip guard is soft and thin, easily popping over your lower teeth. Our high-grade essix-plus material will provide extra protection from your teeth tearing into your lip as you play throughout the day. The custom fitting lip guard can enhance your workouts or high-intensity sessions providing a firm foundation and base for your playing time. With the lip guard easy to pop in or out, use it when you feel fatigue creeping in on your set. Pop it in near the end of your set to finish the session strong or to play a little bit longer.
Wondering if you need a lip guard for your instrument? You might suffer from lip fatigue if you play the following instruments:
- Bass Clarinet
- Double Clarinet
- Pey Pok
- Sarune Etek
- Mock Trumpet
Whether you are picking up a new instrument for the first time or are coming back to it after a few weeks or years of not playing, the custom-fitting lip guard can help enhance your stamina and adds a layer of protection against biting your lip from fatigue.
