About the Company Making ShockShield MouthGuards
Trace Ortho Lab LLC is a Seattle based professional orthodontic lab that fabricates ortho and dental appliances for local Dentists and Orthodontists, in addition to our superior ShockShield MouthGuards for athletes and youth throughout the country.
In business since 2011, owner and Master Lab Tech Tracie Thomas had 25 years experience working in the mouths of patients before opening Trace Ortho Lab; giving her a unique perspective most lab owners and technicians can't say they have. With three boys in sports, Tracie began working on the development of a superior sports mouthguard while her sons were in high school, with the sole intent of reducing their chance of concussive brain injuries during play.

superiority of her custom sports guards
Consequently, not only are our athletes and youth better protected from tooth loss, jaw damage, mouth pain, and concussion; our ShockShield MouthGuards are fully customizable in fit, style and design.
In addition to the base layer of "PolyShok", all of our ShockShield MouthGuards are laminated with a clear layer of "EVA", completely capable of customization, making them fun and stylish in addition to providing superior protection.
The graphics layer is where we get to have fun, enabling the athlete to bring his or her spirit to life through their mouthguard.
Thanks to the technology of the PolyShok material, ShockShield MouthGuards are able to absorb 85% more concussive energy than the standard mouthguards required by league rules. Add the comfort and personalization we put into every one of our ShockShield MouthGuards, and it's a no brainer!
Experience the comfort provided by the process in which we make each ShockShield MouthGuard and you may just find you no longer dread wearing your sports mouthguard. In fact, because they're able to chose their own design, we're hearing athletes and students are proud to wear their custom mouthguards! Now, parents and coaches can rest assured knowing their athlete is better protected against Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury, and will be for the life of their sporting careers, with a ShockShield MouthGuard.
