About Us

Prolon has been making quality mouthguards for over 40 years. We started our journey in Levin, rural New Zealand, where we proudly grew our reputation for making well-made products that last the distance.

We are now based in Palmerston North as a division of Innova Products Limited which has built its reputation on creating high quality, innovative products with a globally renowned reputation.

We are passionate about encouraging all children to be active in their younger years and we believe the youth need to protect themselves from harmful injuries. We are excited about the next phase of increasing safety for children playing sport.

Millions of teeth are knocked out playing sport every year and it’s fair to say that many of these tooth losses could have been prevented with a mouthguard.

There’s a higher awareness of wearing mouthguards while playing contact sports like rugby league, rugby union, AFL, boxing and hockey. In fact, since mouthguards were made compulsory for rugby players in New Zealand in 1997, there has been a 47% reduction in Rugby-related dental claims*

However, it’s the sports like basketball, soccer, netball and baseball that a surprisingly large amount of tooth loss occurs as there is poor facial protection in these sports. Studies in the US found that basketball had the highest dental injury rate however very few players wear mouthguards during games or training*
