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.
The new mouthguard needs to be tried on in the mouth first. If necessary, you can use scissors to cut it off a little, and then use hot water of about 70-80 degrees to soften it, usually it will soften in about ten seconds. Put it in your mouth while it’s still hot and stick it to the upper teeth, then bite the upper and lower teeth with moderate force, but don’t use too much force to avoid biting through. At the same time, you can press with your fingers to make the mouthguard fit the gums and other parts. The new mouthguard only needs to be set once and can be used repeatedly.

Usually, there is basically nothing that needs special attention to the mouthguard. Just be careful not to encounter high temperature or exposure to the sun to prevent the mouthguard from deforming. It is best to store the mouthguard in a special box that can be ventilated. Generally, rinse with water before and after use, or clean with toothbrush and toothpaste to ensure hygiene. If it is an excessively worn mouthguard, it is best to replace it with a new one. Excessive wear will reduce its protective effect relatively, and also affect oral comfort.
