Boil-and-Bite Sports Guard
This type of mouth guard is made at home by boiling it in hot water and then molding it to your mouth. It’s better than a standard size mouthguard in terms of fit, however because it is made of a thin plastic, they can be chewed through and worn down within a few months.
Custom Sports Mouth Guard
A custom sports mouth guard is made by a dentist using exact molds of your mouth, teeth, and gums. Once your mouth guard is made, you try it on with your dentist to make sure it provides a good fit. As a result, custom sports mouth guards offer added comfort and protection. This option may cost more, but this is one of those things that you truly get what you pay for — full-on protection!
