I had to retire my favorite rugby mouthguard this weekend. It was just too vile and multicolored to put in my mouth again. I think it was several years old, but it fit well. Here I have readied my new set of mouthguards for the season/year. It’s nice to see they also come in cotton candy pink.
To fit a mouthguard, you have to dip them in boiling water for about 20 seconds. Remove from boiling water and dip in cool water for a few seconds. Fish it out and put in mouth, bite down and suck to fit. Repeat if mouthguard doesn’t stay affixed to the upper maxillary set of teeth. It has to stick like dentures, especially if you’re in a position where you have to issue commands or yell a lot. Otherwise it flies out of your mouth during play.
If your mouthguards are getting dirty or foul, rinse thoroughly in cool water, and soak overnight in a solution of your favorite mouthwash. Then they’ll be minty fresh for your next match! You can do that with your toothbrushes too – I learned that from an episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, wherein Jai actually had something useful to say for a change.
