Having recently discovered this site and reading posts and threads regarding mouth guards, I have come to realize there is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding regarding this vital piece of equipment. I have personally researched mouth guards for the past 5 years and currently own one of the most highly regarded companies manufacturing mouth guards in the USA. I will check in daily to try and answer as many questions on this subject as honestly and factually as I can.

I don’t own a mouthguard, I'm at the age where all of my physical activity is non contact, or if contact is involved I surely wouldn’t want to be wearing a mouth guard or anything else for that matter. My son however wears a heat and pressure laminated mouth guard referred to as a type 4 guard. I won’t comment on specific brands but on types of guards. The guard you mentioned is a type 2, guard commonly called a boil and bite. For a boxer at lower levels and lighter weight class of amateur fighting this guard may be enough protection. When the level or weight class goes up so must the protection. Mouth guards protect by dispersing impact over a large area and by cushioning the blow. There is not enough material in most boil and bites to do either effectively when the blows become sufficiently hard. Nor do they fit the mouth well enough to disperse impact over the entire guard.

For serious athletes in any sport you have to look for any advantage you can get. Mouth guards can provide a small but existing edge, a type 3 or type 4-mouth guard will provide the best fit and the best protection. Better fit equals better breathing, thicker material equates to better shock absorption. Both type 3 and type 4 mouth guards were once only available through a dentist now you can find them from several companies direct. This way you avoid the higher mark up by the dentist. Type 3 guards are made using a vacuum forming process and fit better than most boil and bites, type 4 guards are formed using pressure, they fit the best. Type 4 guards can also be customized with logos nicknames ect. Because more than one layer of material can be used. This also allows the guard to be made thicker so it is also more protective than a type 3.

Get any mouth piece besides the ones with the shield in front of it. This shield gives you two little holes to breathe through and then covers the whole opening of your mouth. Its good to get the extra protection I guess, but its no good when it causes you to not be able to get your breathe and then you get your ass kicked. Just my opinion.........Rockin'

I assume you are referring to a boil and bite or a stock guard. A well made type 3 or 4 mouth guard should allow you to breath as easy as you do without a guard in, and if it has been done well you should not even be aware you are wearing it.

I started this thread to help educate those interested in the area of mouth guards. I will try and help you in other ways. Your signature line under your posts should read, ”I would rather lose saying I was going to win, than win saying I was going to lose". No charge for the lesson. guess I'm just a nice guy

try customguards.com or opro.com both companies make type 4 mouthguards.I prefer customguards. com for three reasons.One the mouthguards are made by hand to each athetes needs and they have a customer service number where you can call and ask what is the right guard for you, they dont list them all on the web.Two they actively support boxing including sponsoring boxers like B-Hop. Three I happen to own the company.
