How should I fit my SISU mouthguard?

We often see the question of how to eat a bite. Eating a bite is very easy, but of course you have to know how to do it. At The Hockey Center there is plenty of choice of different mouthguards, which you should all use in the same way. We often also help you in the store and you can go home with a bite to eat. But sometimes you have to get your mouthguard at home and that's why The Hockey Center makes it easier for you. We will explain you step by step how to best use your mouthguard. Please read the steps carefully before you start. If you still have questions about this, please send us a message


STEP 1: Fill a container with boiling hot water. Boil enough water to completely submerge your mouthguard in the water for 30 to 60 seconds. Then immerse the mouthguard in the water. For example, feel with a fork every 15 seconds to see if the bit is becoming a little soft.

STEP 2: Then carefully remove the mouthguard. A SISU mouthguard hardens quickly, so try to get the mouthguard in your mouth as quickly as possible. Be careful not to burn your mouth on the warm mouthguard, so make sure it is not too hot when you take it out of the water.

STEP 3: Now push the protector up against your entire teeth with your thumbs, making sure that all parts of the mouthguard are molded around your own teeth. Press all parts of the protector against your teeth and suck it against your upper teeth. Place your tongue against the roof of your mouth to apply pressure and get a good fit around your teeth. This should take no longer than 15-20 seconds.

STEP 4: Remove the protector from your mouth and place it in cold water. Allow the protector to cool in the cold water for about a minute or two. After these minutes, try to see if the mouthguard fits properly. If the protector does not fit comfortably, the nice thing about a SISU mouthguard is that you can feel free to use it again. For example, if the protector does not fit comfortably on your molars, put this part of the mouthguard in warm water again and shape it until the protector fits comfortably. and fits well around your teeth. You are now ready to play hockey safely.
