Don't bite very hard or your bottom teeth with just go through it as it's really soft.

Conforms to your teeth and get a great fit.

* Not responsible for ruined guards or burns. Bout the same risk as drinking coffee, just make sure boiling water is off.
Not just referring to your post, but I really want some info about dentist made mouthguards only. I appreciate your answers though. Because it's a rule in Sweden to have a mouthguard made by a dentist. You can get a penalty for illegal equipment if you use a different mouthguard (this never happens) and your insurance is not valid if you get hurt
