The National Federation of State High School Associations is the overriding body that regulated High School sports in the country. The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, the Oregon School Activities Association and the Idaho High School Activities Association are the governing bodies for each state.
The WIAA, OSAA & IHSAA accepts the NFSS rules concerning helmets and Mouthguards. The football rules were updated in 2005 as follows:
1-5-1: Beginning with the 2006 season, all helmets shall be secured with a four-snap chin strap and a tooth protector shall be of any readily visible color, other than white or clear.
The purpose is to allow the officials to easily confirm the Mouthguard in the player’s mouth.
Occlusal contact: Full arch (if possible) with cuspid guidance
Hard Processed Acrylic
This is the normal processed acrylic product. It is clear and can be designed with various thicknesses. We articulate and create equilibrium on the occlusal surface. This is trimmed to about 3mm from the incisal edge, to accommodate undercuts.
Clear acrylic to match orthodontic retainers (indicate on Rx)
Processed hard acrylic on occlusal surface/soft thermo-reactive material bonded to tooth side
Color stable & will not harden or distort over time (has memory) under normal wear/handling
High patient compliance
Designed to meet your preferences in terms of flat plane, canine guidance, thickness, upper or lower, etc.
Hard/Soft Processed Acrylic
This nightguard is processed with normal hard acrylic on the occlusal surface and a soft thermoplastic that is bonded to the inside. Shore-D hardness testing shows it will not harden over time under normal wear and handling conditions. It has “memory” and will not warp under normal wear and handling procedures. It is very comfortable with good retention and therefore patient compliance is very high.
