CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MoGo Sport, makers of the world's first flavored mouthguard has announced today a partnership with Golden State Warriors star, Stephen Curry. The NBA Star joins MoGo Sports as a brand ambassador and will begin wearing the Stephen Curry special edition lemonade-flavored mouthguard this season.
"As a professional athlete and father, I can appreciate a company like MoGo that is trying to make protective sports gear more enjoyable to wear," said Curry. "One of the things I stress at events like my basketball camp is the importance of protecting yourself on the court. Regular mouthguards were always uncomfortable and rubber-tasting, but MoGo tastes great and keeps my mouth from getting dry."
In addition to wearing MoGo mouthguards, Curry, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin and others will help raise awareness about the importance of mouthguard protection for youth athletes. The American Association of Orthodontists estimates that 67 percent of children do not wear mouthguards while playing organized sports. However, a recent study found that 90 percent of youth athletes chose flavored mouthguards over non-flavored ones.
"Athletes such as Stephen realize that wearing a mouthguard allows them to play aggressively without fearing that a collision with an elbow or head will knock their teeth out," said Bruce Angus, founder and principal of MoGo Sport. "MoGo flavored mouthguards are the first mouthguards that athletes actually enjoy wearing. If the mouthguard tastes good, the athlete will keep it in their mouth and help to prevent injury."
MoGo Sport mouthguards utilize a patented process that embeds the mouthguard material with natural flavor essences without sugar, calories or harmful chemicals for refreshing flavor that lasts the entire season. Athletes at all levels from a wide variety of sports have discovered the protective and performance enhancing features of MoGo. MoGo provides professional-level protection (including a $10,000 Dental Warranty) and a comfortable custom fit with mouthwatering flavors.
MoGo's mouthguards are currently available in Orange, Lemon, Fruit Punch, Blue Raspberry, Mint and Bubble Gum in adult and youth sizes. MoGo also makes flavored mouthguards for children and adults with braces.
