Custom Mouthguard Info

Custom mouthguard prices start at $79 online, and $89 in office. You can add text & graphics for $30-$50 extra.

All our custom mouthguards are made from Dental Grade Soft EVA Mouthguard material. Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) is a very soft plastic/rubber that easily forms when heated. In addition, the energy absorption properties makes it tough and stress crack resistant. They are Latex and BPA free.

Thickness (aka Protection Level) depends on the age of the athlete, as well as the sport that it's being used for, but our Protection Level Options range from Ultralight to Heavy.

As long as it's being properly taken care of and there has been no change to the athlete's teeth, the mouthpiece should last 1-2 years, sometimes more. We recommend replacing your mouthguard every year or two.  

Yes, we make mouthpieces for all sports. Simply tell us what sport you participate in when filling out your order info, choose your mouthguard thickness, and we'll make your mouthpiece specifically for your sport.

No. Mouthguard thickness (aka Protection Level) is based on the sport it's being used for. So for example, a mouthguard for grappling or basketball won't be as thick as an mma/boxing mouthguard.

No, sorry. They are bulky, uncomfortable and restrict breathing. We don't think they offer enough protection benefits to justify the drawbacks.

A custom fit mouthguard is made to fit you and ONLY YOU by using a dental mold of your teeth. A boil & bite is one size fits all, and everybody's mouth is unique and different so there's no way the fit and comfort will compare to a custom fit mouthguard. Also, the protection you get from an official Mouthpiece Guy custom mouthguard is far superior to anything you can buy off the shelf. Check out our Boil & Bites Suck! page for more info on this subject.

Yes. Because our mouthguards are custom made using a dental mold of your teeth, you will be able to talk perfectly while wearing the mouthguard.

Yes. All of our mouthguards come with a case so you can store your mouthguard safely and keep it clean.

There's no way to predict how fast a kid's teeth are going to grow, but sometimes, the mouthguard can be remolded at home with boiling water, just like a boil & bite.

No, sorry. We do not offer mock-ups or proofs of the design before making the mouthguard.

PDF or PNG files with transparency (no background) or a solid white background are required. JPEG, screen shots, and hand drawings will not work.

There are some limitations on what can be put on a custom designed mouthguard, but for the most part, we can put almost any design on a mouthguard! But keep in mind that we have a very small amount of space to work with, unlike a banner or t-shirt.
