Silver Gum Shield Junior Gen 4
Designed by Dr Anthony Lovat BDS the founder of OPRO, the world’s largest supplier of custom mouthguards, all OPROshield™ models introduce the patented OPROfin™ retention system which gives the OPROshield™ the best retention (fit) performance of any self-fit mouthguard in the world.
The highly technological cross-sectional profile present in all the range means maximum protection against front and concussive blows whilst keeping the palate clear for improved breathing and speech.
The OPROshield™ is the world’s most advanced self-fit mouthguard.
PATENTED OPROfin™ TECHNOLOGY
Oproshield Self-fit Range
- BRONZE – high protection entry-level design, a one material mouthguard with 11 self-forming fins.
- BRONZE ORTHO – high protection mouthguard for FIXED orthodontic braces
- SILVER – improved protection and retention in your mouth, with two materials and a tough outershell, soft lining with 11 self-forming fins.

The OPROshield™ Junior is specially designed for those children up to 9 years of age with particularly small mouth. In many ways it mirrors the regular OPROshield™ except it is smaller, uses different material blends and has drain holes to allow rapid cooling so that the fitting is carried out at a lower temperature.
There are special written instructions included which should be followed alongside the Mini CD which is enclosed with all their gum shields.
Whilst the OPROshield™ is a “boil and bite” product, its patented design offers unprecedented comfort if you closely follow the detailed fitting procedures.
Minors should be supervised by an adult at all times.
Please note this is not suitable for fixed braces. If you are looking for a gum shield for fixed braces try the OPROshield™ ORTHO
