Pro Mouth Guards?

I feel like the pros use mouth guards that don't really inhibit their speech like your typical guard would. Anyone have any idea which brand they usually use?

The 600$ ones that are molds of your actual teeth that you can get at certain dentists.

http://www.customguards.com/

this is the one I use, it was $50 they send you some epoxy and a dental mold you mold your own teeth. Send back the impression and they make you a custom fit mouth guard. it fits tightly you can talk and drink with it in. they send your mold back with your mouth guard so if you every need a replacement its only $25 because the impression is half of the cost.

I use one from the above link. It's the best $60 I ever spent. I forget it's there. 10% of the cost of a professional one and it fits perfect.

$600? not sure what dentist you're going to but i got mine made for $100. A custom done mouthguard is a much more effective means of preventing concussions than the junk you boil on your stove.

I use a $20 Shock Doctor Gravity guard, it goes on your bottom teeth. Basically, it just keeps your mouth open so you can breathe easier and it keeps your jaws from smacking together to prevent concussion and cracked molars. It doesn't do anything for your front teeth (I wear a full cage), but you can breathe and talk perfectly with it.

Yup, thats about right! A dentist just did them at cost for my sons high school hockey program. I believe the cost was $250 which our Hockey Boosters picked up. No cost to us, about 40 kids on the 2 teams = 10k. Thats some serious coin for mouth guards at cost!

my understanding is this guard is exactly the same thing you get from top dentist for a fraction of the cost because you don't have to pay dentist fees.
