By use: Be aware that all mouth guards will wear out. The biggest problem may be using them too long. Depending on the sport and duration you should get a new guard every season and probably mid season as well. If you are s bruxer or chew on it a lot plan on replacing once a month.

Dentist: Ask your Dentist to evaluate. Know that a custom mouth guard made by your Dentist will be more effective than any OTC product.
