Teeth Device Questions
Where is a description of each teeth device?
You can get to a description of each of our teeth devices by clicking on the picture of your desired teeth device on our “Store” page.
What products are used to make these devices?
All products that are used to manufacture our teeth devices are FDA approved.
Is the quality of the devices the same as a dental office?
Yes, we use the same labs that make these devices for dentists.
What does each device do?
Please visit the product description page for description, function and care.
Why do the devices with teeth added require me to have 10 existing teeth on both the upper and lower and 20 total existing teeth?
This is required because in order for the lab to know where to place the missing teeth, they have to know how your upper and lower teeth meet when you bite all the way down.
When you have less than 10 teeth on both the upper and lower, the lab is not able to tell how your upper and lower teeth meet together when you bite down.
Can I modify the design of the devices?
No, the lab uses the universal shape, size and materials of the most commonly used teeth device designs.
Teeth impressions questions
Are impressions easy to take?
Yes, the teeth impressions only take 5 minutes per arch and you only have to get it right once and then we store your impressions for years.
Do you supply practice materials if I have never done this before?
Yes, each impression kit comes with enough practice putty to do a full practice impression so you can get familiar with the process before you take your final impressions.
How do I send in my teeth impressions?
We provide a plastic bag that is used to return your impressions in. You first place your impressions into the baggie and then place them inside of the postage paid envelope to ship back to us.
Can I send in an impression or mold that I have from my dentist?
Yes, you can use 3D printed models or silicone (putty) teeth impressions from your dentist but you will still receive a teeth impression kit with your order.
There is no discount when you send in your impressions or mold from your dentist.
Also, we only guarantee that the teeth device will fit the mold that you sent us from your dentist but we are not able to guarantee that the device will fit your teeth.
Can I send a teeth device in the place of teeth impressions?
No, the lab is not able to use a teeth device in the place of an impression or mold.
If I have to retake an impression do I wait and send both in at the same time or do I send them in one at a time?
Yes, if upper and lower impressions are required by the lab, you must send in both impressions at the same time.
Do you keep my impressions on file and for how long?
No, we ship your impression(s) back to you with your completed device(s) so you can use them for future orders.
Can I take an impression over the top of a permanent bonded retainer?
Yes, the lab will place wax over the top of the permanent retainer while making the removable retainer so it will not interfere with it when wearing.
Is it important to mix the impression putty until it is a solid color?
Yes, in order for the impression putty to harden properly, during the impression process, the 2 colors of putty must become a solid color.
Do I need to let the impression putty harden all the way before removing it from my mouth?
Yes, if you take the impression tray out of your mouth before the putty is totally hardened, it will get distorted and cause your completed teeth device not to fit your teeth.
