- We take an impression of your mouth that essentially gives us a “copy” of your teeth.
- Stone plaster is poured into the impression and allowed to harden to make a stone model of your teeth.
- The model of your teeth is placed onto the vacuum machine where the template of the mouthguard is placed as well.
- The heat from the Sta-Vac warms up the mouthguard template and is then vacuumed over the stone model.
- Once the mouthguard template is set and formed completely, the template can be removed from the model.
- The template is then trimmed and polished to take shape of the mouthguard that will be inserted into your mouth to protect your teeth.
