PlaySafe® sports mouthguards are highly effective protective appliances custom-built to your patient’s impressions. By providing this service to athletic patients of all ages, you can help prevent significant dental trauma during sporting activities. At Glidewell Laboratories, we use the Erkoform-3dmotion (ERKODENT® Erich Kopp; Germany) thermoforming machine, a countertop unit designed to expedite the manufacturing process through partial automation. Here is a peek inside the laboratory process.
