The Doctors Night Guard Instructions
Follow the following steps to fit the Doctors Night Guard.
#1. Fill a pot up to 3 inches with water and bring it to boil for a minute. Put the dental protector carefully into the water then wait for 50 seconds
#2. Using a fork, remove the product from the boiling water and start the timer for 20 seconds
#3. Immediately hold the hard part without touching the sticky top of the dental protector and put it in the mouth using a mirror. Then hold the teeth firmly against the device.
#4. When the 20 seconds are over, bite down the protector until it gets into contact with the bottom. Continue biting.
#5. Keep your mouth closed and use your tongue to push the plastic material upwards to the roof of the mouth and to the sides of the teeth.
#6. Wait 30 seconds while the protector is in place in your mouth.
