Resilient and reinforced tooth protector?
The bottom of the outer shell is reinforced to give additional protection to the teeth preventing perforation. The soft silicone, covered by the polythene film, moulds to teeth giving all round support and protection. The combination of the hard outer shell and soft lining gives the device strength yet allows it to adapt to the patients dentition ensuring full protection and minimal risk of dislodgement.
Is it safe to use the Camo tooth protector?
In order to prevent inhalation or ingestion, a cotton cord is attached to the shell. The silicone makes the dental splint firm and sturdy. To prevent fragments dislodging, the silicone is wrapped by a thin polythene film. Do not remove the film.

Is Camo for single use only?
