Customized Mouthguards for Any Sport
Many patients in your practice need an effective mouthguard! All of us know that the over-the-counter “boil and bite” mouthguards can be ineffective. Athletes of any age who participate in body contact sports can seriously damage their dentition when not wearing adequate protection. Do you know which mouthguards offer optimum preventive adequacy? See and compare the differences in technique and adequacy among vacuum-formed, pressure-thermoformed, and over-the-counter mouthguards. Learn how to fabricate custom-fit pressure-thermoformed mouthguards for your athletic patients. Then, expand this technique into implant stents, model duplication, temporary stents for fixed prostheses, clear orthodontic positioners, orthodontic retainers, custom trays for bleaching, fluoride application, denture splints, and soft and hard occlusal guards. This video will significantly change your practice for the better!
