Abstract

Mouthguards are effective means of protection against traumatic injury in the maxillofacial complex during sports. The thickness of the mouthguard material which is essential to provide shock absorption can also have side effects such as increase in vertical dimension and disturbance in speech.<BR>The objective of our current study was to examine the possibility of utilizing newly developed high-shock absorption silicone material (α-Gel) for fabricating mouthguards to reduce their thickness. Shock absorption was tested with the accelometer on the testing machine and on two volunteer subjects. The results indicated that α-Gel is a promising material to reduce the thickness of mouthguards without losing shock absorption.
