A "The cushion effect". It has been claimed that a mouth guard has to be of a soft material, in order to cushion the impact. This concept has not been scientifically proven, and our experiments clearly show how a soft material caves in while a hard material dissipates the forces over a larger area, therefore reducing the transmitted forces.
Soft material does not have a cushion effect.
An article in the journal Dental Materials, 2002; 211-215, by Danny Low et. al. confirms that thicker mouth guards have lower energy absorption.
B. "Thick mouth guards reduce concussions" This has been argued for decades but there is no consensus amongst scientists concluding that mouth guards prevent concussions, especially not thick, soft ones. One theory states that thick mouth guards create a recoil space in the jaw joint (TMJ) which can make concussions worse (Walilko et al., Dental Traumatology (2004; 20; 255-260). SISU is the only mouth guard on the market thin enough to avoid this problem. M A D E IN THE U S A
