From Geek to Chic

This is the first mouth guard I have ever purchased. I knew nothing of mouth guards before starting roller derby 13 weeks ago so I went to the store and picked one in the middle price range and made sure it had a strap for easy in and out. As you can see, it is big, bulky and bright. The strap cut into my cheek, I couldn't talk, at least not clearly, and I had to take it out to quench my thirst.


The other day I heard about a great mouth guard via my favorite social network. I decided to try it out.

I know, you're probably thinking "Where's the new mouth guard?" I'm wearing it! It's thin, comfortable, I can speak clearly and drink easily. There is no need for a strap because I just keep it in the whole time! The package also claims that it is 30% stronger than conventional guards and that germs from your hands won't stick to it. It was extremely easy to shape to my mouth, especially while looking in the mirror. The Protech Dent Mouth Guard is the only mouth guard for me from here on out. A two pack sells for $39.99 and it's worth every penny. You can get yours at

**Full Disclosure: I was given a 2 pack Protech Mouth Guard to review for this post. It did not affect my opinion of this product.

**Also, if you are my friend and you wear the 1st kind of mouth guard, I do not think you are a geek. Don't be offended!

They come in double packs, does this mean they wear out quickly?

I don't think they wear out quickly, I think it's so you can keep a spare handy in case you forget one or misplace one. Also, it's nice if you want to go in halfsies with a friend.

I love mine too. I also got on the blogger review bandwagon. I actually did have some trouble fitting it, but that is likely because I am challenged with things like that. I love that I can drink with it.

Sweet mouth guard. Now all you have to do is ensconce yourself in cotton batting, and you're all set!

Deidra, I can't remember if I already said this or not but I just think you are freaking awesome for doing roller derby! That is just hardcore awesomeness! And in these photos, you look EXACTLY the same as you did when we were girls! Except without bangs. ;^)
