MoGo Sport - Flavored Mouthguards Review

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

I'm a referee for the local roller derby team and my oldest daughter very recently joined as well. We are required to wear full safety gear, including mouthguards. I've purchased and used two brands of mouthguards in the past. One I liked real well. The other I threw away immediately after first-time use. I recently received two mouthguards from MoGo Sport, and Shelby and I put them to the test.

The M1 MoGo Sport Mouthguard currently comes in six flavors: Bubble Gum, Blue Raspberry, Mint, Orange, Fruit Punch and Lemon, two styles (black or clear) and two sizes (adult or youth). I received two adult size mouthguards, one in orange flavor and one in lemon. Every MoGo mouthguard comes with a quick release tether, but I have not used the tether during roller derby.

When I first received the MoGo Sport Mouthguards I made the rookie mistake of instantly inserting one in my mouth and going from there. Such is not the case. MoGo mouthguards need to be softened and molded to better fit a person's individual mouth. This is done by submerging the mouthguards in hot water, then into a glass of room temperature water. Once those steps are finished, the mouthguard is molded by lining it up with the center of your teeth and biting down. There are complete instructions included on how to mold the mouthguard and they are easy to follow. Once I properly molded the mouthguard to my teeth, it fit well and felt like it provided ample coverage.

MoGo Sport Mouthguards get their flavor from a revolutionary technology that allows MoGo to place any flavor into plastic. The flavor is not coated or sprayed on the plastic; it is impregnated into the plastic and the flavor lasts for nearly the life of the product. A flavored mouthguard (especially one with good taste) sure beats wearing a "plain Jane" mouthguard.

I've been wearing the lemon MoGo and Shelby's been using the orange one. I'll take her word that the orange one has a nice flavor. (No swapping of spit here!)

No mouthguard in the world is good, regardless of flavors, if it doesn't protect. Both Shelby and I feel confident that our chompers are well protected with MoGo while we play roller derby.
Do you or your child play sports that require mouthguards? Which flavor MoGo mouthguard would you like best?

How fun that they come with flavor! My two older boys used mouthguards in jr. and high school for their sports. I don't remember seeing flavored ones though...we'd have snatched those right up! :)

They look cool. I like how they are flavored. Some of the guards are nasty.

My kids don't use mouth guards for their sports, but they do sound like a lot of fun. I'd love to try the orange flavor one!
