How to Stop Gagging on a Mouth Guard

By Robert Preston

Mix the two composite materials of the dental mold kit.

Fill the mouth piece of the dental mold kit with the composite materials.

Insert the mouth piece into your mouth and bite down into the composite mold material.

Remove the mouth piece after several minutes, as directed on the kit. The piece may provide pressure before giving way.

Fill the mold with plaster of Paris if the custom guard company of your choosing requires a plaster casting be handed in. If the company only requires a mold, skip this step.

Bring the mold or plaster casting to your guard manufacturer, or mail it for a mail-away creation. A skilled professional will craft a guard that fits your teeth perfectly, providing full protection without extending any farther into the mouth than is needed for that protection.
