What’s the difference between a professionally made mouthguard and an over-the-counter mouthguard?

Professionally made dental athletic guards offer the highest level of protection when it comes to hugging your teeth, buffering your lips, and even preventing the trauma that causes some types of concussions.

Over-the-counter sports guards on the other hand, are usually a “boil and bite” design, or a one size tray. They tend to fit more loosely and can fall out easier. If you get hit in the mouth, the sports guard could come out before you wind up hitting the ground.
