Custom Mouthguards -Things You Need To Know

Mouthguards are a must for any avid sports person, whether it's in contact sports like football or soccer or in recreational sports like basketball. However, getting to the point of custom-made mouthguards can be expensive and takes time to get your plan started. Fortunately for you, this article has all the information you need about how to make custom mouthguards on your own without having to spend too much money or find your design online!

These can be found at most hardware stores, or online, for very cheap prices. The files you need to create your custom mouthguards will vary from person to person, but it's a good idea to start with a basic set to see what works best for you. Try removing the teeth from a plaster impression of your teeth and using those as one base for your design!

If you don't have any plaster impressions, try doing your own cast of your teeth: take several pictures of them with a flashlight at an angle near the top teeth so as not to obscure visibility with the saliva in your mouth; then, using this as a base, take the cast at different angles to see what works best for you.

Just because it doesn't fit on your teeth does not mean that it won't work when you are wearing it underneath your headgear. And of course, if you don't have any plaster impressions or pictures, just try drawing something with a sketch pad!
