Subject: at home mouth impressions

I'm trying to find out if anyone knows of a way for people to make molds of
their mouths at home.  I'm aware of boil and bite molds, but I think they
lack the amount of detail needed to fit someone for a customized mouthguard.

We'd like to start up a business offering customized mouth guards for people
in which they can order directly from their home and then send their molds
to us so we can make a customized mouth guard.


Sure Scott,

In fact, an enterprising California dentist has done exactly that. He set up
kiosks in malls, gives patients take-home impression material (or does it at
the kiosk) and the patient takes their own impressions. He then mails them
the completed whitening/mouthguard thang.

The dental societies are trying the figure out how to shut him down because
he is dispensing polyvinylsiloxane to patients without perscriptions! Or
prescriptions either.

We're looking for a product that will allow someone to easily make a reverse
impression of their mouth

--- Cool! Its also known as an "intaglio," a 3D inverse replica of the
mouth. ---

that will maintain it's shape without shrinking
during transit through the mail system.

Oh mail! Then its no good. I thought you were going to go with Airborne or

Anyone have any ideas?
