The sports mouthguard will be made for the top arch only as these are, by far, the teeth most vulnerable to trauma. Most athletes won’t wear a mouthguard on both arches as it makes speech and breathing too difficult.
Here are a few words from the Academy of Sports Dentistry on custom mouthguards versus over-the-counter, boil & bite mouthguards.
As to the question: What are the best mouthguards? The position of the Academy for Sports Dentistry is that to be adequate, a mouthguard must be properly fitted and properly worn. In order to ensure a proper fit, a mouthguard is best fitted by a dental professional. It is generally accepted that a custom fitted mouthguard fabricated over a dental cast of the athlete's teeth will give the best fit.
Properly Fitted Mouthguards Should Be Standard Equipment
