The custom fitted mouthpieces are more durable and comfortable. The custom laboratory fabricated devices are precisely fitted to the accurate impressions which you provide.
These mouthpieces and mouthguards are thinner, more secure and more comfortable than the Boil and Bite offerings. These custom fitted devices cost slightly more but are usually hundreds or thousands of dollars less than the dentist’s offerings. The dental professional offers the optimal solution, but it is more costly. So a reasonably competent person can safely and accurately make the required dental impression and save hundreds of dollars or more. Remember, the final device material is exactly the same. It is up to the user to decide.
