The choice of Aero vs Max is entirely up to you. Both guards will custom fit to your mouth, stay in the entire game, be comfortable and allow for natural flow of air and saliva, so you can talk, breathe and drink.
Max guards are 2.4 mm thin and provide 50% more protection and Aero Guards are 1.6 mm thin and provide 30% more protection.
Most of our customers in team sports wear an Aero Guard. The Max Guard is generally used in sports that either have a higher rate of direct facial contact (like boxing, MMA, BJJ, box lacrosse) or do not use helmets or face masks (Rugby, Quidditch, Field Hockey).
Our Junior Guard is the smaller version of Aero, designed for children between the ages of 6-11 years of age. If you have a smaller mouth but you are outside of this age group, you should still get an Aero guard. Please read our Q&A below to learn more fitting tips for smaller mouths and watch our fitting video to help you get the best fit.
Keeping it clean and letting it dry before storing will keep the germs at bay and extend the life of the guard.

With SISU, every part of the guard is an important player when it comes to getting the most protection out of your mouthguard: the perforations, the crumple zones, the boomerang shape. Not only will trimming the guard void any available dental warranty, but your teeth will be at a lot more risk for injury.
Again, no. By the time you turn 11, your jaw has fully formed. You’ll need all the material provided in any of our adult mouthguards to provide you with the best protection.
You can certainly wear a SISU on your both top and bottom teeth, but most of our athletes prefer the comfort and strength that a single mouthguard provides. It's really a matter of preference.
In order to best protect your teeth, we have done extensive research to make sure you are as safe as possible during game time. Every SISU is made of inherently hard material, so there’s a small chance your gums will be adversely affected if you are punched directly in the mouth. However, soft tissue damage is often much less dangerous and costly than teeth injuries.
None whatsoever! All of our mouthguards are PVC, Latex, BPA and Phthalate free.

Rinse your SISU thoroughly in lukewarm tap water and soap after each use. Alternatively, the mouthguard can be brushed with a regular toothbrush or non-abrasive, non-whitening toothpaste. Carefully rinse and dry before storing your SISU at room temperature, and consider purchasing a SISU Case to keep it safe and clean!
