Changed the formula. Have fitted probably ten of these before and this one was the most difficult. The material used to get so pliable it would almost become clear. No matter how hot I got the water I never got that pliability. It took me almost 15 times to get a decent fit. Still not thrilled with the fit but spent over 45 mins doing something that typically took me ten before. I will continue to support Sisu because they’ve kept my teeth in place after 6 years of derby. I still have faith that this one will protect my teeth just not thrilled with the thickness or how comfortable it is.
It's a tight fit if you want that. I redid mine 3 times with zero issues to get just the right fit. I was going to try to use this as a bite guard for grinding at night. I found it to be a bit too cumbersome. It may work for you though. It's probably worth a try since a professional bite guard is a few hundred dollars.
a bit uncomfortable where the holes were molded. Had a collision and the tiny perforation holes were abrasive to the inside of my mouth and left my lip a bit swollen. I tried re-molding to make it smoother but it didn't work. The low volume is nicer than my previous mouth guard but I don't feel like there is as much protection as with my mouth guard that covers both top and bottom teeth, but maybe that's just my perception.
I don't know? I personally find a hard plastic mouthpiece uncomfortable. It fits really tight and snug. Sort of distracting in my opinion. I cut my mouth the first time I rolled with it. On a positive note, it's extremely lightweight and talking is a bit easier than a traditional mouthpiece. I now keep it as a backup.
Super thin and firm material, produces a very tight fit and is very difficult to shape. Don't boil it, just put it in hot water as directed. I recommend using a mirror to help with sizing/alignment as well. I had to redo it several times.
Ok, I was expecting a lot more out of this mouth guard. It is a piece of hard plastic with holes that becomes pliable when you put in hot water. It took me about 30 times to get this thing molded to my teeth without any bends or bulges and it is still not perfectly comfortable. If you have an overbite there is little to no support for your rear teeth and if you have no patience Forget It. They make it look so easy in the videos but it really is not. Plan on heating it multiple times.
My daughter plays softball as a pitcher. Her pitching trainer told her that if she doesn’t wear a face mask, she should wear a mouth guard. She doesn’t like mouth guards, so I had to find her one she can talk with. I’m not completely impressed by the talking thing, as it’s not as good as it says it should be. The only thing I don’t like was having to mold it. It was extremely hard to mold because it wasn’t working very well.
Bought one of these for myself as well as all three of my kids. We all play ice hockey & three of the four of us love them. They are a huge improvement over the big bulky mouth guards that make you want to gag. However, we’ve only had them a few months & one of my kids has already broken his - a big chip came out of the back part. He’s a goalie and hasn’t taken any hits that would have over-abused the mouth guard. I’m hesitant to spend my money on another one if they aren’t sturdy but he really likes it better than the other ones.
