I finally got around to shooting a quick video on the basics of custom fitting one of the mouthpieces that I ordered off of Amazon. Since I’ve ordered my last pair of mouthpieces, I’ve seen even cheaper alternatives available on Ebay as well.
Here’s the main things I try to remember when molding a new mouthpiece:
1. Above all it is most important to stick out my lower jaw when biting on the mouthpiece
2. Make sure my teeth are in the grooves prior to biting down
3. Avoid biting down way too hard and biting through the mouthpiece (at least with my incisors)
4. It’s ok if I need to re-heat and reset and push against the mouthpiece to better mold to my gums and teeth!
Let me know what you think and if you have any other helpful suggestions to pass along!
