    I was wondering what kind of mouthpice everyone uses. I’m considering getting a custom one made, but can’t decide if it’s worth the money. The main reason I’m considering a custom mouthpiece is the fact that it would stay in place better making it easier to breath. Opinions?

    I use a Shock Doctor single – the mid range priced one. It seems to work just fine and I have no trouble breathing around it. Though if I could afford it I would probably get a custom one.

    I agree with rikki, the shockdoctors are pretty good.They also come in different ranges, single, double, with fittied gel. Custom ones can get pretty expensive and can be a bit larger than usuall. They are of course safer- and probebly worth the investment.I would eventually like to get one. Ive used my shockdoctor for years, they are easy to clean too.

    My regular dentist charged me only $50 for a custom sports mouthguard. Call your dentist.

    Definitely call around to the dentists in your area. My dentists charged $25 for the first mouthpiece, then $10 for any additional, he was really into sports. Personally I think it’s worth it because they do fit better and it is easier to talk and breath. The dentist even gave me the mold of my teeth when I moved so I can get more cheap ones made! I think the mold is what makes it most expensive, so be sure to keep yours for future use.

    Thanks for the info. girls. I’m actually using a Shock Doctor Gel Max right now myself. Some of the guys I spar with really like the WIPPS Brainpad mouthpiece. Have any of you used one of those?

    I bought a Brain Pad Lo Pro and tried to use it but it didn’t fit right. The arch was too wide and it didn’t fit correctly around my teeth, even after boiling it! My husband uses a WIPPS though and he’s never complained.

    I use a brainpad now. I used to HATE the double mouthguards, but after a teammate convinced me to try it, I’ll never go back. Locking that bottom jaw in place, you’ll be surprised how much bigger of a hit you can take. Takes some getting used to, but like I said, I will never go back. I love my brainpad! 😀 They make female ones that are smaller versions of the lo pro too so that might fit better for some.

    There’s the exact link where I ordered mine. Like I said, takes some getting used to. I drooled alot the first few times I put it in, but that goes away. The other thing is, my jaw got tired from biting down too hard I think. I would wear it, then after my rounds I would realize my jaw was tired. Probably a combination of biting down too hard and not being used to having something that bulky in my mouth.

    Rikky, did you try cutting and shaving the ends of it off to see if it made it more comfortable?

    I did. You should have seen the mess I had after I was done with the mouthpiece massacre! Maybe it would work for someone else but it sure didn’t for me! I also have a TMJ problem so I have to be picky about my mouthpiece any way.
