Step 1: Select the correct size - Junior (under 10 years), Youth (11-15 years) and Adult (16 years and over). (Please note that these ages are approximate as mouth sizes can vary).
Step 2: Place the Elastoplast Sport Mouthguard over the upper teeth to test for size.
Step 3: If too large, trim back using scissors until a comfortable size is achieved.
Step 4: Practise pressing the mouth guard firmly to the roof of the mouth with the tongue whilst biting down gently.
Step 5: Place the mouth guard in near-boiling water for 10 seconds. Remove with a large spoon and shake off the excess.
Step 6: Insert mouthguard immediately into position and bite firmly, but gently, to obtain an even bite. The guard will feel warm, but will not burn the mouth.
Step 7: Whilst in this position, suck the guard into place by exerting pressure with the tongue against the roof of the mouth.
Step 8: Mould the guard around the side of the teeth with the forefinger to ensure a tight fit.
Step 9: If the fit is not right, repeat until it feels correct.
