Shaquille O'Neal's Mouthguard costs $2995.00...

Later this summer/early fall we will be operating a one day only Mouthguard clinic. While Shaq's mouthguard costs almost $3000.00, we will be making you a similar style CUSTOM professional mouthguard at a very affordable price. The Mouthguard Clinic will be open to ANYONE, not just our patients.

Our intentions are to keep cost VERY LOW. It will probably be priced at/near a good boil-and-bite style mouthguard one could get from a sporting goods store. The mouthguard itself, however, will be significantly stronger, better and more protective than a boil-bite-mouthguard. Stay tuned for the date and time.

I came across this article about mouthguards (Big-League Chew), in the August issue of Time Magazine. It's rather entertaining and provides a quick look at the edge a good mouthguard can give to an athlete's performance.
