Mouthpieces can be used for several different things. People use them when trying to scuba dive, they use them when trying to stop snoring at night, and they use them when trying to protect their mouth during sporting events. No matter what the reason is they are an obvious help to these people. Because of this people do what they can to make sure that they get the type of mouthpiece that fits perfectly.
The best way to ensure this is to invest in a custom mouthpiece. This particular type is made using a mold that is fitted into your mouth. This will make sure that the mouthpiece you are using is not too large or too small and will not come out easily on its own.
Fitting The Mouthpiece
In order to get one of these you have to know the proper way to fit custom mouthpieces. There are special kits that you are able to purchase which will give you all of the tools that you need to accomplish this.
- The first thing you need to do is heat water in a pan till it is hot enough to make the mold pliable. Make sure that the water is not boiling or else it will ruin it by melting it.
- You will need to set the mouthpiece into the water for 15 seconds and no longer. If you think it is too hot for this then do it for less time and vice versa.
- Remove it from the water and check to see if it s able to be placed into your mouth without burning you. Make sure that it is able to be molded. If not then you need to put it back in the water.
- When fitting the mouthpiece you need to place it tightly between your teeth and chew down on it a few times. Use your fingers to fit the mouthpiece around your teeth from the outside of your face.
