I bought this for an entirely different reason than most; not for sports but for sleeping. My dentist said I had been grinding my teeth at night judging by the wear on my teeth. They said they could fit me for a night guard for about $80- I asked what if I bought a molded mouth guard and used it, and the dentist said it's basically the same technology. So after looking through some reviews I bought this one.. It works GREAT!! It was easy to mold to my teeth, it didn't mold the bottom surface any only where my teeth are inside. The strap was nice because I was afraid I might swallow it, but this thing doesn't move all night- I don't think I need the strap but it's fun to flap around on my wife's head while I'm lying next to her!
First, it fits well but then it starts to fall apart after 4-5 games...
We're on year two or Shock Doctor Adult Gel Max Strapped Mouthguards (and youth as well), and I can't see ever buying another mouthguard brand again.
No complaints: this mouthguard covers my son's teeth, it is durable (he has not chewed through it) and holds up to repeated washings (given the evidence that mouthguards get covered in all kinds of nasty bacteria, etc., I would love to be able to change the equipment out every week or so, but that is cost-prohibitive).
I bought this for my friend's son and he used it and he did not complained this item.
easy to set up come with a paper saying how to make it fit to you. feels fine but i would have like a bit more cover on the bottom teeth.. string is a hard but bendable plastic.. have not wore it in a game but im sure if feels good.
He chews on his mounthguard, unfortunately, but this holds up as well, or better than, other brands we have tried. The strap is important. Otherwise, I'm sure I'd be replacing a lost mouthguard every week.
Not the most attractive thing in the mouth, but is that really what a mouthguard is for? NO! Does a nice job of protecting LAX players from jaw damage.
Great Product, my son plays American football and says that it is really comfortable, the clip and strap are great to attach to his helmet.
