Gum Shield Review – Opro Shield Mouth Guard

Posted on 23rd May, by Martin in Mouth Guards, Roller Derby. No Comments

Gum shield I didn’t bother with for the first few sessions. It was only when we started doing pack work that I needed one.

So once again I went off to JJB and picked up a cheap one that you put in hot water, bite down on then it moulds themselves to the shape of your teeth. It was am Opro Shield Mouth Guard and can be found here>>

Mine fitted really well when I did it but a few of my friends really struggled with theirs. Mine was fine until I had to use it for more than three minutes and it made my gums bleed and I looked like I had just bitten the head off of a vampire bat. So I am going to look at other mouth guards and will let you know which ones I really get on with.

For a starter guard this is better than nothing if you don’t mind the bleeding. I am not a fan of bleeding gums (that sounds like a band) so I haven’t used it since. I suppose on this occasion you get what you pay for.
