Types of Mouthguards

There are three types of mouthguards: Ready-made or stock mouthguard, Mouth-formed “boil and bite” mouthguard, and Custom-made mouthguard made by a dentist These mouthguards vary in price and comfort, yet all provide some protection. According to the American Dental Association, the most effective mouthguard should be comfortable, resistant to tearing, and resilient. A mouthguard should fit properly, be durable, easily cleaned, and not restrict speech or breathing.
