If you are new to boxing and are having trouble finding an adequate mouth guard, here is a guide to help you choose the best boxing mouth guard and keep you safe even if you don’t actually spar against someone in the ring.
Since boxing is a very demanding sport, fatigue sets in rather quickly and has you gasping for air sometimes frequently.
If you purchase any average stock mouth guard model, and fail to bite down and apply pressure on it in your mouth to keep it in place, it will most likely dislodge, move around inside your mouth, or possibly fall out rather easily when you open your mouth to take a deep breath.
To facilitate this inconvenience, we offer a superior guard with secure comfort and protection that enables you to breath easily.
This mouthguard model is made of a smooth flexible material that can be custom molded to your teeth. It will gently cradle the structure of your mouth and teeth without you having to deliberately apply pressure to hold it in place.
When fighting in the ring, getting punched to the jaw is a commun occurrence and a well-timed boxing punch can easily lead to rather serious and devastating injuries.
In most cases, single mouthpieces protect the top teeth only and leave your bottom teeth exposed which can result in having your teeth slice through your tongue and lips causing severe damage.
To mitigate mouth injuries, we recommend a double mouth guard or a dual layer mouthguard featuring a rubber outer frame. Although slightly bulky in nature, the protective advantages of these guards far outweigh the disadvantages. In order to increase breathability and air flow, some mouthguards like the Nxtrnd RUSH only feature added bulky material in the mouths important impact zones (in front of the mouth and under the molars).
For complete mouth protection, we recommend moldable mouth guards for your upper and lower jaw INDIVIDUALLY, such as our RUSH and Classic models. That way, when you inevitably open your mouth to gasp air, the protective gum shields will not dislodge and your teeth will stay protected.
Individual moldable upper and lower mouth guards will also protect your teeth from almost any punch. When getting hit by an uppercut, if your top and bottom pieces are in place, your jaw, teeth and tongue will be cushioned and your chances of injury will be substantially reduced or simply non existant.
