    What do you guys use?

    Im fighting MMA in a few months so I want something strong enough for striking. I want a dental implant mouthpiece (not a do-it-yourself kind) and I dont want a double sided one either.

    OPRO Mouthguards -- The World's Favourite Mouthguard seems to look like the best I can find

    Customguards.com - Protect Your Winning Smile seems to be about the same (just better known and more expensive)

    Are there any other brands I should be looking into? What do you guys wear, if anything?

    I have a custom guards it's good for the money but you can still feel a lot of impact from punches, I'm upgrading to the company that makes mayhem millers mouthpice pretty soon , custom guards a cheap and they will make the second mouthpiece for half off or at least they used to here mine

    custom guards ride low on your gums and that feels weird at first but then you get used to it,you can also breathe better than with a boil and bite,it sticks to your teeth, you can notice in the last pic how much larger my boil and bite was than the custom guards mouth piece

    I have had an opro for a couple of years and it is excellent.

    boil n' bite are generally rubbish.

    Python Guards are good, and their customer service is really great. My guard is a bit bigger than a boil and bite, but I can breath better with it, talk, and drink water with it when it is in my mouth.
