Photos/Provided by Keystone Industries INDUSTRY NEWS Keystone Industries, the U.S.-based company that manufacturers some of the world’s top mouthguard products, has launched the latest product in its Pro-Form Mouthguard line — the PF2 mouthguard. Unlike laminated mouthguard prod- ucts that require a dentist to custom fit to the patient, the PF2 mouthguard is a do-it-yourself guard that provides an accurate custom fit without any need to take impressions of the teeth. With the elimination of dentist ap- pointments and impressions, the price of this guard is significantly lower than custom-fit mouthguards while still providing high-impact protection, according to the company. The PF2’s unique design also enables it to be re- fit by the user multiple times. “Being a leader in this field means we need to set the bar high for new prod- ucts and innovation,” said Michael Prozzillo, vice president of sales for Keystone. “The PF2 will change the way athletes buy mouthguards, but also how the dentist sells them.” The PF2 mouthguard is available in either black or white. The company re- ports that there will be bulk purchas- ing available in the near future, which will include a display piece and litera- ture on the product suited for dental offices. Multiple color options will also be available soon, similar to the Pro-Form line of color options, according to the company. Custom fit in less than a minute “You just won’t be able to get ahold of another mouthguard that can be cus- tom fit in under a minute and provide the same beneficial features,” said Der- ek Keene, Keystone’s vice president of marketing and product development. “We’re excited to watch PF2 take off and Mouthguard has athletes smiling ” See MOUTHGUARD, page B3 Ad
