irv_6 saidLooking for a good mouth-gaurd that will last me the whole season, any suggestion?
I don't know your sport, but if you use a mouthguard regularly I *highly* recommend a custom. The difference between a custom and off the shelf is really night and day (even compared to those shock doctor gels). An inexpensive, but high quality guard is Gladiator Guard Pro (don't get elite, even for boxing/mma most people think it's far too bulky). That said, even the pro is a bit on the large side so you can get thinner customs suited for your sport (good for boxing, bit larger than probably necessary for grappling). But a large custom is waaaay better than any off the shelf (and I've never met anyone who's tried both who doesn't feel the same).http://www.customguards.com/_product_9753/Gladiator_Pro
for a slimmer guard you might try Pro-Tekt (I haven't tried them, but they're essentially the same basic design materials as the Fight Dentist UFC guards, but without the mark-up):http://www.protektmouthguards.com/bioguard.htm
You can also get your dentist to make you a custom, and this has the advantage of being covered by many people's dental insurance plans. However, they rarely have the technology necessary for multi-laminate guards and, in combat sports at least, are usually considered insufficient. (Though, you can save money on any of the above customs if you get the dentist to make your impression for you (if covered by insurance) rather than having them send you a self-impression kit; I wouldn't lose sleep over the $30 or whatever for it though).
