How Are They Made?
Our expert orthodontists and dental surgeons will take an impression of your mouth and this will be used to make a detailed mould of the inside of your mouth. Unlike a shop bought mouth guard, the mould maps even the smallest of irregularities and gaps between your teeth. This is sent to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard is made using a strong and durable plastic. The exact thickness of the mouth guard can be selected to meet your particular needs. This bespoke approach creates a finished product that fits comfortably and provides a great deal of protection.
How Long Do They Last?
Whilst mouth guards bought from a shop can break down and change shape in just a matter of months, a custom made one will last you a number of years – although this is dependent on how much wear and tear it receives and how it is cared for.
It’s important that you regularly visit our experts to make sure that your mouth guard still fits you correctly.
