We are not examining your mouth. You understand that a doctor has not examined your mouth (oral cavity) to check for any physical anomalies or disease. We recommend that you have your oral cavity examined in person by Dentist or Physician at least once per year.

By using our service, you agree that upon needing a snore guard device (EMA), clear retainer, Hawley retainer, night guard, partial denture or repair, it would not be REASONABLE to wait any longer and/or that a physical dental office visit would also not have been REASONABLE given your situation due to the inability to travel etc. You understand that a licensed dentist will or has reviewed the case either by examining the appliance in person, in pictures, or by video.

How Do Retainers Fit and Devices Fit? 

All of appliances fit based off the impression that is sent in. That is why it is very important to have an accurate impression and picture sent to us for viewing, before mailing back. If you do not send us the impression needs to capture the teeth and palate for the upper and for the lower, we need all teeth.

If you take an impression and the front teeth are covered to the gum line, but the back teeth are only half, then the final product will cover the teeth to the highest point that your impression did.
