Get fitted by A local dentist

If you prefer to GET fitted by a local dentist, follow these instructions

WARNING: We do not recommend getting fitted by a dentist! Most dental offices do not take the type of impression we require, and they almost NEVER follow our instructions below. 

  1. Find a local dentist and ask them "Can you take a PVS impression of my upper arch so I can send it to a lab for a custom sports mouthguard?"
  2. Before they begin, show the dentist our instructions below and ask them “Can you take an impressoin that matches EXACTLY what the lab is asking for?” If they can't, go somewhere else!
  3. Email us photos of the impression for approval. We must approve your impression before you can ship it to our lab. If we receive an impression that was not approved and does not meet our requirements, we will not be able to use it.
  4. For instuctions on emailing impression photos, see Step 5 of the Impression Kit Instrucitons.  
  5. Once we've approved your impression, you will receive specific instructions on shipping the impression to our lab.

NOTE: We do not accept plaster teeth models or 3D scans. We will only accept a PVS impression.
