Founded 20 years ago in 1997 by Dr. Anthony Lovat BDS., OPRO is the world’s most technically advanced mouthguard company and leading pioneer in oral protection. From our state of the art manufacturing facility in Hertfordshire, we are dedicated to bringing cutting-edge technology, innovation and safety to all athletes, at all levels of sport. We believe in inspiring sportsmen and women who wear our mouthguards to achieve sporting success.
Over the years we have been privileged to supply our mouthguards to some of the world’s leading athletes and are proud to be official mouthguard supplier to many international sports federations such as England Rugby, New Zealand Rugby, England Boxing, GB Taekwondo, the German MMA and England Hockey to name but a few. These athletes trust us because they know that when they wear an OPRO mouthguard, they can concentrate on their sport and be certain that their teeth and gums are protected by the best-fitting, most comfortable mouthguard in the world.
We have used our experience and expertise in manufacturing Custom-Fit mouthguards in the development of our Self-Fit range. OPRO Self-Fit mouthguards are suitable for all contact sports and provide excellent fit and retention through our unique and patented OPRO fins – ridge-like structures that break down when placed in hot water and then mould around teeth and soft tissue to provide a snug fit and in turn give the wearer the best possible protection in a self-fit mouthguard.
Our British heritage is important to us. All OPRO products are made in the UK and available around the world through a network of retailers and distributors. Our mouthguards are CE certified and in 2007 we were honoured to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation in recognition of our ground-breaking work in the field of oral protection.
Pushing boundaries is in our DNA so we continually research new ways of improving our products. Our mouthguards are now available with Biomaster anticmicrobial additive, which is proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99%.
The first 20 years for OPRO have been an exciting journey and we are looking forward to the next 20 years and beyond.
