Get a mold from A local dentist

If you prefer to GET a mold made by your local dentist, follow these instructions

  1. Find a local dentist and ask them "Can you take an 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 make me EXACTLY what the lab is asking for?” If they can't, go somewhere else!
  3. Text photos of your mold to 951-634-6708 before shipping it to us. If we receive a mold that does not meet our requirements, we will not be able to use it.
  4. Once we've approved your mold, follow the instructions on the Provide Your Own Teeth Mold page.

dentist instructions

“Hello Doctor! Below you will find detailed instructions on what our lab requires in order to make the type of High-end sports mouthguard that our customers expect from us. Anything less than what I've listed for you will not suffice. I need the best impression/model you can give me, almost as if you were making a full upper denture for a patient! We prefer a PVS impression that we can pour in our lab, but a stone model will do.”

Jeff Darr - owner, Mouthpiece Guy LLC

IMPRESSION REQUIREMENTS

  1. We need more than just the teeth! Impression must extend past distal of 2nd molar and have full vestibule capture w/ borders & frenum attachments.
  2. If a PVS impression is taken, Heavy body or Monophase material using a single-step technique is recommended; light body or wash is not required. Silgimix by Sultan in a single-step technique works great!
  3. If an Alginate impression is taken, it must be poured right away and a stone model must be sent. Stainless steel, solid rim-lock trays work best.
  4. Do not take Mandibular impression or bite registration.
