    Opinion on mouthguards

    So I've been using the old $2 boil and bite mouthguards forever. Once, I bought a $10 one, but it didn't work well at all. I asked my dentist how much it would be to make a custom one for me, and it was $300! I just want one that I can breath easy with, and will fit well.

    What experiences has everyone had with various mouthguards?

    Brainpad mouth guard worked well for me.

    I followed boiling directions and all that. I did cut/shave some pieces down because of gum irritation but I was well satisfied with it. I had many years of orthodontic work growing up so I was really concernd with teeth as well as concussions

    www.customguards.com

    $80 gets you a custom molded guard and the mold itself so that you can always get a replacement. Plus every subsequent guard you buy from them is half-price. I'll never go back to a boil and bite. Totally worth it if you're going to be doing a lot of hard contact.

    Those $2 dollar ones are pieces of **** and the cheaper boil and bites will come loose in your mouth when you get hit. I wore my custom guard through two of my fights and it served me well through a lot of sparring sessions. You have to pry it out of your mouth with a finger its such a perfect fit. For a little extra you can even get a bunch of goofy **** put on there like school logos and patterns.

    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    Are you saying I have a big mouth?





    GONG SAU, Bitch!

    ergo - I win.

    Depends, can you fit your fist in it? Otherwise, gong sau is off.
