The rink has lots of threads where the visor vs cage debate can happen. The OP asked about mouthguards.

I've tried several boil and bites rom the cheapo's to top of the line and they all suck. A professional one is worth it even if it's more expensive. My kids wear them and I've found that the professional ones will last until they need a new one for fit while the boil and bites are loose in their mouth so they chew on them and they are wrecked in a month or less plus they never sit where they need to be anyway. A professional one will stick to your teeth allowing you to breathe, talk and drink. Call around to several dentists for prices, it varies in my area from $25 to $110 for the exact same thing.
