On the rugby pitch or the football field, protective mouthpieces are required equipment. The typical mouthpiece is made of a gum-like substance that is heated in boiled water, formed in the mouth to fit the wearer's teeth, then cooled solidifying the mold to a custom fit.

At Halloween parties and Goth clubs, the standard equipment is a cheapo set of plastic fangs, designed to make one look like a frightening bloodsucking ghoul.

By combining the two we get IRB/NFL approved Safety Fangs that will scare the bejesus out of your oppo. Likewise costumers and clubkids will party in safety, knowing their real teeth will remain intact despite wine cooler or absinthe induced violence.

If I can get dentists onboard, I'll add some slow-release flouride to the mix, an added bouns for candy-munching kids whose teeth never come in contact with enamel rotting sugar.

       of course these aren't the only sports where gumshields are worn. perhaps these could be employed in boxing to save Tyson getting his teeth knocked out while the fangs make it easier for him to bite his opponents' ears off (+)

       My dad is a dentist, when I was a teen I had really gappy teeth. Out of boredom and our shared sense of fun he made me a moulded palette with beautiful great big fangs to fill the gaps. They were very artistic and great for travellling home late at night.

       that is a great idea, if could make a few and give them to boxers and such. you'll be stinking rich.

       Its a good idea but it has been done. If you watch UFC. ANdre arlofski or whatever his name is, wears them.
