How are mouthguards made?
If you think a mouthguard sounds like a good idea, we'll first give you a complete oral health assessment to check that your teeth and gums are healthy or if there are any problems that need to be treated first.
We can then take an impression (mould) of your top teeth and send this to an off-site dental laboratory. They'll design and manufacture your custom mouthguard to be the perfect fit for your teeth. You can also choose the colour of the mouthguard, if you have a preference.
We'll call you back for a fitting appointment when your mouthguard is ready and delivered to us, usually around a week later. You can test it out and see if any adjustments need to be made, then it's ready to use whenever you need it.
