Fixing Custom Mouth Guard Irritation Areas

July 08, 2016 1 min read

After we send out a completed Custom Mouth Guard, we sometimes get a call from our clients that say their mouth guard is causing irritation to the gum line.  We call these irritation areas Hotspots.   The main cause for this is the impression may have been taken out the mouth too early before the putty set.  Therefore, gravity pulls down on the impression gum line area before it sets.  When we pour the mould the mould then does not fully represent the form of your gum line.  No worries, there is a quick fix to this issue with a few elements you can use at home.  Watch this short video to find out how.
