To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this mouth guard because I read the reviews and I wanted to give this mouth guard a try. I have been through a LOT of mouth guards- Sleep Right, Wilson- you name it, I've tried it. I am a clencher/grinder looking for relief, so I am NOT using this for sports. I am looking for a mouth guard that can provide me with two things: 1. Soft cushion for my teeth so I don't break my crowns/do further harm to my TMJ 2. A mouth guard that STAYS PUT
This mouth guard did one of those things very well. It stays. When I molded it, I thought I wasn't going to be able to get it out. Ever. It took me 10 full minutes to get it out of my mouth. On the plus side, if you play contact sports, you won't have to worry about choking on it. I did try wearing this to sleep, but it is SO HARD, my teeth hurt the next morning, and they felt slightly out of place. I couldn't wear it anymore. I would recommend this to anyone playing sports, but I would not recommend this to people like me. 3 stars because I THINK it would be good for sports, but I'm no athlete, so I don't want to lead anyone astray.
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.
