How long do mouthguards last?

Also, I've been wearing my retainers 24/7 for 7 months, the ortho suggested I tried to wear only the mouthguard at night to see how it goes, I'm afraid it can mess up my teeth.

Your Orthodontist is correct to suggest you only wear them at night now. If you feel they fit very tightly when you put them in at night, you must contact him again to review your retainer schedule, just to be on the safe side.

Thanks for the answer. It was a bit tight at first but it fits better now, do you know how long they last?
