The Morgan Bumper is designed to provide orthodontic patients with a comfortable, easily installed shield for their brackets that bumpers their lips and cheeks from discomfort often associated with braces.
The Morgan Bumper is formed from soft, pliable medical grade polyvinyl-chloride (PVC) that was chosen for its flexibility and adaptability at body temperature.
The Bumper clamps over the braces and its C-shaped design allows the patient to press the device into place. Semi-cylindrical ridges snap over the brackets and O-rings. There is no force or pressure applied by the Bumper.
The elasticity of the legs of the Bumper tend to close the channel, snapping the ridges into engagement with the brackets and O-rings outer surfaces. This facilitates retention of the shield on the brackets.
Once the device is in place, the patient's lip applies additional inward pressure to keep the shield in place.
Inexpensive and attractive, the Morgan Bumper is available in clear (in stock) and fluorescent colors (special order).
How to Use
|Trim the Morgan Bumper to length as required to fit your braces.
This can best be determined by wrapping the Bumper over the outside of your lips, holding one end on the back brace of one side and wrapping to the back brace of the other side... then simply cut the Bumper to length.
Place the middle of the cut section over your two front teeth and smooth the Bumper toward your back teeth using your index fingers.
Some trimming may be required or practice installing your Bumper to match the ends of your braces.
