Sounded gross. Enough to make me consider even one of those little shock doctor ones.
I haven't worn a mouthpiece at all and I don't fall very often - but as I play more, I see more and more collisions and times where others have fallen down pretty hard to the ice. I'm a recovering dentalphobe, so I really, really hate spending time in the dentist's chair if at all avoidable. I may be getting a mouthpiece after reading this. I know a few others on my team wear them.
