In my 2 years of BJJ, I have had mouth guards come and go. They were always the ones that came as a flat sheet of plastic and you are supposed to soak it in hot water to fit your mouth. They look like this before they are molded:They look like this after they are molded: Recently, after I've worn mine for several minutes and I take it out, my teeth feel like there has been a lot of pressure put on them. I've tried remolding it several times, but I either feel that it doesn't fit or it is crushing and misaligning my teeth.
- Is this normal?
- What can I do about it without changing the mouth guard?
- Is there a possibility that the mouth guard is actually misaligning my teeth?
