SISU Mouthguards are known for their unmatched protection, comfort, cleanliness, and remoldability. Though it might not seem possible, they have made an even better mouthguard! SISU 3D improves on previous SISU models, and adds a number of new features:
Pre-formed shape to enhance fitting difficulty and accuracy
Variable material thickness to put protection where it is needed, and comfort where it is desired
SISU NextGen is the latest evolution in mouthguard engineering by the makers of SISU Guard. Simply put, it is the most powerful mouthguard Sisu have ever built. With unmatched quality and functionality, SISU NextGen was designed with the athlete in mind, and its unique new features are hyper focused on additional protection and comfort.
THE SCIENCE OF SISU
In the labs, Sisu have put each mouthguard through strenuous testing to see how it performs in relation to its competitors. SISU Guards are made from unique medical grade thermo-polymer, which is, remarkably enough, free of harmful chemicals. SISU material is non-compressible, which enables SISU Guards to outperform the competition in tensile strength tests.
The tensile strength of our SISU material is consistently at least 30% higher than that of conventional EVA (a material most other mouthguards are made of). In reality, the material performs even better, due to the built-in Diffusix™ Technology, better protecting your teeth from damage.

Powered by our patented Diffusix™ Technology and engineered to withstand even more impact, SISU NextGen delivers even more protection with its scientifically re-designed perforation pattern. Based on suspension bridge technology, the main function of the perforations is to redirect the forces of impact. On impact, perforations oscillate and send the forces into our scientifically engineered Crumple Zones - the reinforced points of the guard that don’t cave in under pressure. Here, the force of impact is redirected away from teeth and absorbed into the non-compressible surface of the guard. This unique design empowers SISU NextGen to protect you from even the toughest hits.
Custom fit, remoldable SISU NextGen features a wider bite pad, rounded edges and improved moldability. Rounded, bevelled edges soften the point of contact between the guard and the mouth, and improvements in the perforation alignment enable maximum dissipation of force transmitted from the point of impact. Superior protection is not the only function of the perforations. They also allow for flexibility to create an intimate custom fit, so unique to the player’s mouth that the guard remains in the mouth during the entire game or practice. Additionally, perforations allow for natural flow of air and saliva to empower athletes to talk normally, breathe naturally and stay hydrated during the game.
GOT BRACES? NO PROBLEM!
SISU is a great mouth guard for braces! The SISU mouthguard for braces is thin and you can remold it as your teeth are shifting, but before you run for the bowl of hot water, we want to walk you through how to fit a mouthguard with braces. Please make sure to read through the rules below to help you with your fitting and avoid damaging your brackets:
1. USE THE RIGHT SIZE
All athletes wearing braces ages 7 and up must use the Aero Medium, Aero Large, or Max. (You cannot use Aero Small with braces)
2. CONSIDER A MOUTHGUARD FOR YOUR BOTTOM TEETH
SISU Mouthguards can be fitted to the top or bottom teeth. If you have braces, we recommend that you buy an additional guard to fit on your bottom teeth to prevent your lips from getting cut on the brackets.
3. YOU MUST USE A BARRIER BETWEEN THE BRACKETS AND THE GUARD
When fitting SISU with braces, you need to cover the brackets with dental wax or aluminum foil. SISU is a custom fit mouthguard that fits perfectly to your teeth. Without a barrier over the brackets, the SISU will create a vacuum tight seal around the brackets and be hard to get off. The good news is that you only need to use the barrier during the fitting process. Once fitted, you can wear the guard right over the braces. Be sure that the guard does not curve up and over the bracket where it will harden and become difficult to remove - block out the area above the bracket with dental wax.
4. YOU SHOULD WORK WITH YOUR DENTAL PROFESSIONAL
Braces are an investment in time and money, so you want to do it right. During critical times when your teeth are undergoing rigorous adjustments, your orthodontist may recommend an alternative solution, so not to hinder the progress of your treatment. Work with your dental professional to help you fit, and re-fit, your SISU when you come in for your adjustments.
5. AS YOUR TEETH SHIFT, YOU SHOULD REFIT THE GUARD
As your teeth shift during the orthodontic treatment, the mouthguard should be adjusted to fit your new shape. The guard is remoldable for up to 20 times, so you can continue using it, as your teeth shift and move. Simply bring it with you for each adjustment and it can be re-fitted right in the office with a bit of hot water (and the barrier). No impressions required!
6. HOW DO I REMOVE A GUARD THAT IS STUCK TO MY BRACES?
Please follow these steps to safely remove the guard:
Gather the following tools: A cup of very hot water, cotton swabs, cotton balls, cotton gauze, a pair of tweezers, and a washcloth.
Take care to protect the mouth to prevent burns due to hot water exposure! Use the washcloth or cotton gauze to absorb excess hot water when applying the soaked material to the guard.
Begin by using the tweezers to apply hot water-saturated cotton swabs or cotton balls to the guard area surrounding the brackets, to soften the guard.
As the guard softens, use the tweezers to slowly and gently, pull the guard away from the brackets. Focus on smaller areas, progressing until the guard can safely be removed. (Reheat the water as necessary to maintain the temperature needed to soften the guard.)
