According to the type of exercise and the intensity of resistance, mouthguards are also divided into different types, there are three main types-
1. Customized mouthguards: This is custom-made by professional doctors according to different needs, to ensure accurate retention of mouthguards, stable wearing, effective mitigation of impact, and minimize oral and facial damage. Curry, old James, or NHL stars, or boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, etc. all love to order
2. Heated, bite-type mouthguard: This is the most common type at present. The shape of this mouthguard is pre-formed, and its shape can be changed by heating the mouthguard in water, and then bites on the heated plastic. , so that it is suitable for different people to wear.
3. Ordinary mouthguard: This mouthguard is pre-formed and ready to wear. These mouthguards usually don’t fit very well and are bulky and can interfere with breathing and speaking. Most of them are not used now
Boxing mouthguards are generally divided into two types, one is a double-layered, full-shaped mouthguard, with two upper and lower layers. Both upper and lower teeth can be bitten, which can protect the upper and lower teeth at the same time, but this will affect breathing to a certain extent, and this double-layer mouthguard is not very comfortable to wear, although it can protect the teeth of the lower jaw, but the effect is not so prominent . The other is a single-layer mouthguard. It is mainly a half-shaped mouthguard to protect one-sided teeth, which is worn on the upper teeth and close to the upper jaw. This single-layer mouthguard has relatively little impact on breathing. And the protective effect is not much worse than the full mouthguard. Obviously, this half-guard single-layer mouthguard is more suitable for normal training or actual combat use.
