What is the difference between a Custom mouthguard and a “Boil and Bite” (sports shop/chemist mouthguard)?

The custom made mouthguard is made specially to fit you, so is more comfortable to wear and therefore provides more protection for your mouth.

The “boil and bite” mouthguard is less comfortable to wear, provides less protection and you also need to be cautious not to burn your mouth while trying to get the mouthguard fitted.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
