Then we will use thin plastic and shape the guards for a custom fit. For as long as your teeth are the same, (no breaks, or missing teeth) we can even make replacements should the dental guard get lost or misplaced. When the guards are on, it is very hard to notice them and our patients often report back that they are surprised at how easy they are to wear.
