    The risk in judo is probably vanishingly small. Having said that, I took an elbow in the face doing newaza last week and now have a chipped tooth. Albiet a very minor chip.

    Hence I am currently awaiting delivery of my gum shield as I decided to go the Gucci ruote and have one made based on a mold of my increasingly manky looking mouth.

I was just curious as to whether anyone actually goes through the process of molding the mouthpiece.

    My brother seemed to think, since there was always a sort of suction break when he removed his mouth piece, that maybe it wasn't molded properly, and that suction to his teeth may have played a part in his losing a tooth to the rugby gods. I don't think we could ever know for sure.
    a non-molded mouth guard will never protect you as well as a molded one. your brother's was most likely not done properly.

    I should have said, anybody with braces has to wear mouthguard, at least when I'm running the practice.

    I've got plenty of chipped teeth from doing Judo. The concussions concern me a lot more, though. though. though. though. though.

    I hear mouth guards are supposed to mitigate certain types of concussions.

    Maybe, but all the concussions I've gotten in Judo, a mouthpiece would not have done me any good. I did break off half a premolar once, when a sandan threw me with uchi mata so hard I saw stars (in a shiai).

    I don't discourage mouthguard use in Judo. It's a personal choice as far as I'm concerned.
