We recommend adult supervision for child fittings.

Boiled Water
What you need: pot, bowl of cold tap water, slotted spoon or fork, heater/gas or electric* stove, a mirror.

Do not rush through steps 1-5

  1. Fill a 4-6" pot with approximately 3" of water. Let the water come to a rolling boil. If using a gas stove, simply turn the heat off, if using an electric stove, turn the heat off and remove the pot from the heat source*. Have a bowl of cold tap water nearby.
  2. Place the CustMbite MVP face down in the boiled water for 30 seconds.
  3. Remove the mouthguard from water with a slotted spoon or fork and dip into the cold water for 3-5 seconds.
  4. Carefully place the mouthguard in the mouth, lining up the mouthguard with the center of the teeth. Do not bite the mouthguard into place, but lightly close your mouth so that your teeth come in contact with the mouthguard.
  5. Close your mouth and suck hard on the mouthguard, pull your lips together move them around and push your tongue up on the roof of your mouth until it has molded into the shape of your upper teeth. In 45 seconds to 1 minute, you should be able to open your mouth and the mouthguard should remain securely in place. Leave in your mouth for a total of 2 minutes. You may then continue to leave the mouthguard in your mouth or remove it and leave in the cold water. In 5 minutes you will have a final snug fit comparable to a dentist-office custom made mouthguard.

If fitting over orthodontic braces, do not suck on the mouthguard or pull your lips together during forming.

The CustMbite MVP mouthguard can be reformed at any time if the fit needs to be refined. If the mouthguard is too long you may shorten it by trimming before fitting. Heat the mouthguard and trim as needed. Let it cool completely, reheat then proceed with the fitting process. If the mouthguard is too short you may stretch it after heating it. Grab the back ends of the mouthguard and gently stretch the material, then proceed with the fitting.

The National Federation of State High Schools’ mandate for wrestlers with braces will require both upper and lower mouthguards.
