 How to mold a mouth guard

 

An important premise:

THIS INFORMATION DO NOT WANT TO REPLACE THE ONES THE PRODUCER PROVIDE YOU WITH THE PRODUCT!

The mouth guard should be replaced once or twice a year or any time something in your mouth change. It can happen that you lose a tooth or it got consumed, a dental bridge or you are just growing up and the shape of your mouth change for this reason. That is way you have to change your teeth protector. But even if nothing change, a gum shield is always something you have in your mouth, something you chew and bite, all this things consume it. If you want to be safe you have to replace it sometimes.

 

What you need to mold a mouth piece:

If you are about to mold a boil & bite product, do not worry because is very easy. Iniziate a preparare tutto l’occrrente:

1. A boil & bite mouth guard.

2. A small pot with some water.

3. A small bowl.

4. A small bowl with some cold water.

5. A hard plastic spoon or a ladle.

6. A burner.

 What you need to form a mouth guard

 How to mold a single layer teeth protector:

7. Put the gum shield in your mouth and bite it for 4/5 seconds.

8. Using your fingers, and stick it on your teeth especially in the frontal area.

9. Inhale a couple of times to avoid that air or saliva make undesired thicknesses.

10. Wait 4/5 more and remove it from your mouth.

11. Dunk the mouth piece into the cold water you prepared in the other bowl.

Professional custom made mouthguards

There is nothing you have to do to form this mouth piece, the only thing you have to do is go to your dentist and get a mold of your teeth. What will happen after, depend on the dentist, but anyway, the materials will be properly shaped based on it before to be finalized by the specialist.

Conclusions

As you can understand, what you need to do to form a gum shield are very easy to do. If you followed the points properly, when you open your mouth the protection does not move, and it has to stay in place and stick on your teeth.  If, in the opposite way you do not feel comfortable with itand it moves around, you can form it again but do not it more than two maximum three times.
