Abstract – 

Orthodontic appliances are one of the major risk factors for traumatic injuries during sports events. As it is difficult to take precise impressions with orthodontic appliances, fabricated custom-made mouthguards (MGs) often have poor retention or are too tight causing the disturbance of orthodontic treatments. The purpose of this article is to describe a method for custom-made MG fabrication using sheet and tube materials, with which better MG retention and rigidity as well as pressure control to the orthodontic appliances can be easily achieved.
