Default Mouthguard for use with full plate

I'm getting back into playing hockey and have noticed that a few of the rinks (roller and ice) I've been to now require mouthguards to be worn. My question centers around the fact that I wear a full upper plate (denture). I'm assuming there aren't many, if any, others in this boat but there may be some with a partial or bridge. I mean, this IS a hockey forum. I guess I'm looking for something easily moldable and not real bulky. I COULD just leave the plate out and roll hillbilly style but I'd imagine concussion prevention (or the attempt thereof) is as big a reason for the guard as tooth protection.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Try out the Shock Doctor Gravity. They go on your bottom teeth.

Forget about Shock Doctor, its a waste of money

Look up Signature moutguards, their Type4 is perfect for hockey, and absolutely protective, i've used numerous mouthguards, pro style and gel and they pale in comparison

Thanks for the suggestion, Jack. I'm actually going to talk to my dentist and see what he thinks about them and maybe get one through him. What would be ideal would be a guard that sits IN PLACE OF the upper plate. I'd imagine, however, if such a thing exists it would be quite expensive.
