Get a mold from a dentist

How getting a mold from a dentist works:

  • Find a local dentist and tell them you need a “stone cast of your upper arch” so you can send it to a lab for a custom sports mouthguard.
  • BEFORE THEY BEGIN THE FITTING PROCESS, SHOW THE DENTIST OUR REQUIREMENTS BELOW!  
  • Ask them “Can you make me exactly what the lab requires?” If they can’t, go somewhere else!
  • The dentist may charge anywhere from $25-$100 for this service. Their fee has nothing to do with our company and is completely separate from the price of the mouthpiece.
  • Once you’ve gotten your mold made, follow the instructions on our Send Us Your Mold page.

DISCLAIMER: We do not recommend going a dentist because most dentists don't make the type of mold we require. However, if they know EXACTLY what we require in advance, they should be able to make you a good mold!
