We were recently asked about how SeaCure compares to other moldable mouthpieces. Here is our response: We have engineered SeaCure to be the mouthpiece that we would want our family members to dive with – a mouthpiece that is extremely comfortable and at the same time the most durable mouthpiece available. Here is some of what is built into every SeaCure:
1) Improved Design
After over 20 years experience, we developed the new X Type – a patent pending design that significantly increases grip and reduces bulk that can trigger gagging.
2) “Offset” Bite Position
As the mouth opens the jaw hinges backward. SeaCure is the only mouthpiece that is shaped for that movement, resulting in the most comfortable bite position. This also reduces leakage and strain in the lower lip area.
3) Bite Stop For Accurate Molding and Remolding
With SeaCure the “bite stop” is located in the Yellow Sealing Plug. This is important because it is not dependent on the position or the shape of the back teeth. The small bite limiters used by some moldable mouthpieces depend on the shape and position of the back teeth. Unfortunately back teeth are very unpredictable! For example, if a back tooth is missing and the mouthpiece has a bite limiter in the back, this can torque the lower jaw on closure causing asymmetric forces in the jaw joints when diving. We would never want a family member or any diver to risk the possibility of damaging a jaw joint.
4) Tear Resistant
SeaCure is made from a stiffer material to distribute the leverage of the regulator to the back teeth. Mouthpieces, and especially firmer mouthpieces, tend to tear where the mouthpiece meets the regulator. SeaCure is thicker in this area to eliminate tearing. We don’t want any diver to have a mouthpiece that can tear in this area during a dive. This is dangerous and expensive to replace.
5) Precision Regulator Fit
SeaCure comes in 5 different sizes since that is the best way to ensure a precise fit with the regulator.
6) Guaranteed To Fit
SeaCure is guaranteed to fit – period! This is not just your standard limited warranty against defects! Because no mouthpiece will fit everyone every time we feel the diver should never be punished if a mouthpiece does not work for them. Unlike any other mouthpiece in the marketplace today we guarantee a comfortable fit with SeaCure.
“If you ever need a testimonial about how Fantastic this product is, please don’t hesitate to call. I used to have bad TMJ problems that were starting to effect my work, but SeaCure solved that problem.”

“SeaCure ROCKS! Holy …. am I glad I bought a SeaCure! Went for my first 2 dives with a SeaCure and it was total bliss. It held onto my teeth, freeing me to focus more on the dive and my tank pressure than on my bite pressure. Post-dive tongue cramps and jaw fatigue were eliminated, as was the compression and shifting of my back teeth due to biting the default mouthpiece. When you purchase your own gear, love yourself enough to buy a SeaCure” Keith
“After a year of diving under my belt I invested in your product. This past weekend was such an enjoyable dive because of your SeaCure mouthpiece. No more jaw fatigue.”
