Keystone Industries Unveils KeyGuard: A Revolutionary 3D Printed Custom-Fit Sports Mouthguard

Gibbstown, 12/11/2023 –Keystone Industries, the team that brought you Pro-Form®, is proud to introduce KeyGuard, a groundbreaking 3D printed custom-fit sports mouthguard resin. This innovative technology creates an unparalleled value proposition for dental clinics and labs, surpassing traditional thermoformed mouthguards by distinguishing itself with a precise fit.

Precise Fit for Enhanced Comfort and Performance

Using advanced digital 3D scanning and printing, KeyGuard allows dental clinics and labs to produce a custom mouthguard molded to the individual athlete, enhancing comfort and safety. KeyGuard eliminates the need for manual molding and thermoforming, cutting labor costs and reducing storage requirements and consumables.

Superior Durability for Long-Lasting Protection

Developed with a proprietary formulation, KeyGuard provides superior strength and durability to ensure longevity and resilience even during intense sports activities, providing athletes with reliable, long-lasting protection.

More Sustainable Manufacturing

KeyPrint’s 3D process minimizes material waste and energy consumption compared to traditional methods for improved sustainability. Dental clinics and labs can now deliver top-quality mouthguards while embracing a more environmental approach.

Impact on Functionality of 3D Printed Sports Guards

The material properties of KeyGuard contribute to enhanced functionality, comfort, and protection offered by 3D printed sports guards, making them a better choice than traditional mouthguards:

  • Protection: The impact strength and impact resistance properties ensure effective protection against dental injuries during sports activities, minimizing the risk of tooth fractures and oral trauma.
  • Comfort: The precise customization created by using KeyPrint 3D printing technology, along with the optimal hardness and flexibility of KeyGuard, provides a comfortable fit that athletes can wear for extended periods without discomfort or interference with breathing and speaking.
  • Durability: Enhanced tear strength and water absorption properties allow KeyGuard to withstand the rigors of athletic use, reducing the need for frequent replacements.
  • Performance: Material properties, including tensile cyclic hysteresis and tensile elongation at break, enable KeyGuard to absorb and dissipate energy during repetitive stresses, maintaining protective qualities over time.

Eric Shirley, President of Dental at Keystone Industries, expresses his enthusiasm about the launch of KeyGuard, stating, “We are proud to introduce KeyGuard as the latest addition to our portfolio of innovative dental solutions. This 3D dental resin exemplifies our commitment to providing practitioners with state-of-the-art materials that empower them to deliver exceptional patient care.”
