Another shout-out to my fellow hockey moms and dads. I know hundreds of you that travel across Michigan's Upper Peninsula for the love of the game. I have often said, "Hockey is not a sport, it is a lifestyle." Those that are commited to the sport, can well relate to that sentiment. If you are the parent of a hockey player, or multiple hockey players, you know how expensive the sport can be. We may try to cut corners, use hand-me-downs and buy gently used equipment in order to outfit our kids. One area that we should never compromise is that of the critical mouthguard. Mouthguards aren't just made to protect the teeth, they are made to protect the brain. Concussions are a huge concern when it comes to hockey. Make sure your child is protected.
Shock Doctor Custom Mouthguards are indeed the "cream of the crop" when it comes to protection. The brain is is one of the single-most important areas that require protection in a game that includes heavy hitting. We had our 15-year-old get fitted for the Shock Doctor Custom mouthguard. He followed the directions and totally completed fitting the mold for the mouthguard on his own. He said it was easy to do. Here's what else he had to say:
Hockey is a game of high speed collisions. As you get older and play more competitive levels of hockey, the hits get harder. This year I played at the Midget AAA level. I would like to thank Shock Doctor for giving me the gift of safety. Playing teams like Shattucks and Chicago Fury means you'll be going against some fast kids who can throw a hit.
Shock Doctor Custom Mouthguard sent an easy to understand box with directions on how to form your custom mouth guard. It took about five minutes to form the mouth guard and pack it up to send back. Shock Doctor must really hustle with their work, it was back in about a week. They also send a free mouth guard to use, while I waited for my custom fit guard to arrive. They really thought of everything. The Shock Doctor Custom Mouthguard comes in a variety of colors and personal messages can be added to the sides. That makes each Shock Doctor Custom Mouthguard unique.
When Playing with the Shock Doctor Custom Mouthguard, I could breath easier and this helped with endurance. Therefore, it improved my game. It has a very snug fit to your teeth and feels like you’re wearing nothing. Unlike other mouth guards, the Shock Doctor Custom Mouthguard is easy to talk with and doesn’t slur your words. I’ve taken some vicious hits with the mouth guard and its kept my teeth and brain intact. If you are looking for a stylish, breathable, highly protective mouthguard, Shock Doctor Custom is the way to go.
