|Spring Green SISU Mouth Guard|
My league got a dentist as a sponsor and we were able to get professionally made mouth guards for a nice discount and when I started wearing that guard, I thought it was the bees knees. Yet it was still fairly expensive, thick enough to make it difficult to understand me when I spoke, and still made me gag once in a while. That all changed when I went to RollerCon a couple years ago and found the SISU (formerly Protech Dent) mouthguard.

Unlike other mouth guards, the SISU guard is hard plastic which has been scientifically proven to protect against concussions better than their competitors.
Here are the pros and cons that I've experienced with the SISU 1.6 mouth guard over the past 2 years:
- Super thin so it is easy to communicate without spitting everywhere
- Cheaper and more comfortable than professionally made mouth guards
- So comfortable I forget I have it in my mouth
- Can easily drink without taking it out
- Wide range of colors to choose from
- Lasts longer than soft mouth guards
- Can be difficult to mold correctly (took me 2 times to get it right)
- Takes a little while to get used to the hardness
- I would love to see some glitter or swirly colors
Some skaters have had an issue with the plastic taste of the mouth guards, fortunately SISU listened and created the LYFT flavor spray. Don't let the tiny bottle fool you, all you need is a tiny spritz from about a foot away and your mouth guard will smell and taste like peppermint for about 2 weeks. I didn't have an issue with how my mouth guard tasted, but now that I've tried the LYFT spray I'm hooked. The mint flavor isn't too sweet and I have a feeling my little bottle will last about a year, even with me going around spraying my teammates' mouth guards.
I rate the SISU mouth guards so highly that they are the only mouth guards I carry in my shoppe.
