I’ve been participating in some form of sports for most of the last 3 decades. In that time I’ve had to adjust to different types of protective gear. In some cases it was easy, others took a while. One thing that I’ve never been able to use is a mouth guard. My early attempts at using boil & bite guards resulted in frequent gagging until I’d cut it down so much that it barely covered my canines. I broke down and purchased a nano-sized gel mouth guard about a year ago and while it did fit better I couldn’t roll in it at all. I felt like I was choking myself. I spend enough time getting crushed and the last thing I need is to make it harder for me to breath. At this point I gave up. I wasn’t meant to wear a mouth guard and I was OK with that. Then I read a review from Sally Arsenault extolling the virtues of the Bubba Teeth Mouthguard by Damage Control. I’d been tapped several times that week from jaw pressure (while defending chokes) and decided to give it one more shot to see if someone could finally give me a mouth guard that I could wear.
