From wads of gum to world-leading technologies

Boxers in the late 1800s would bite on cotton, tape, sponge and even small pieces of wood during bouts. Sometime in the early 20th century natural rubber resin was introduced and these devices were commonly called “gum shields.” In 1992, mouthguard science took one giant leap for mankind with the first fully engineered Shock Doctor mouthguard. Innovations continued to come with Gel Max, braces-specific, Gel Nano, Custom and a mouthful more.
