Commonly Asked Questions
Is it difficult to take my teeth impressions?
Taking your teeth impressions is quick and easy. We'll send you everything you need in our impressions kit. It only takes a few minutes for each impression.
What happens if I make a mistake with my impressions?
If you need a second impression kit we'll send it free of charge. Please take your time getting your first impression right though, otherwise it slows the whole process down. Remember to send us photos of your completed impressions so we can visually inspect them for any problems.
How soon will I have my custom guard?
It's quick! You should receive your custom dental guard within 1-2 weeks of mailing us back your completed teeth impression.
Do you make guards for bottom teeth?
The upper guard is the default choice since most of our customers (over 90%) choose the upper guard. However, we offer a choice to select a lower impression kit during the checkout process if you prefer a lower guard.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MOFO SMILE GUARD AND WHAT I CAN BUY IN A STORE?
The guards you can buy in a store are a soft thermoplastic that you fit to your teeth after heating it up in boiling water. They're bulky, cheap, and flimsy and can interfere with your sleep.
A guard from MOFO Smile is different. We custom mold our guards to fit your teeth exactly using your teeth impressions. That means they're thinner and more comfortable than anything you can buy from a store.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MOFO SMILE GUARD AND WHAT I CAN BUY FROM A DENTIST?
Mofo Smile guards are made using the same materials and the same process as what you could get from your dentist, just at a fraction of the price. Just like your dentist, we make our guards custom to your teeth but instead of having to schedule multiple appointments to have your impressions taken, you can do it at home.
WHAT ARE MOFO SMILE GUARDS MADE OF?
All of our materials are non-allergenic, latex free, and BPA-free.
Our MYMOFO Night Guard is made out of a clever thermodynamic acrylic that is firm and flexible all at the same time. It allows itself to adjust in the mouth so it is extra comfortable, and when you put it in at night, warm it up for the smoothest insertion ever.
Seriously good stuff.
CAN MOFO SMILE GUARDS BE WORN DURING THE DAY?
Yes, our Light Duty guard can be also used during the day. We make it out of 1.5 mm material so they are less invasive (not visible and you can talk while wearing them) and are made of hard soft material so they are more comfortable.
If you prefer a thinner guard, please order the Light Duty and send a note with it. We will make it to your specification. Please note thinner guards are less durable and will need replacing sooner.
HOW SHOULD I CLEAN MY GUARDS?
You should rinse your guard immediately after you wear it and brush it with a soft toothbrush using an anti-microbial soap.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY GUARD?
We recommend replacing your guard every 12 months to 5 years depending on its condition and general wear and tear. If you wear your guard continuously we will be able to replace you with a new one without having to go through the impression taking process again.
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to replace a night guard.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY GUARD DOESN'T FIT WELL?
While it's very rare, if it does happen just email us to email@example.com. We will get you a new adjusted guard or a new impression kit to make you a new guard—free of charge. But if you’re still unhappy, we do offer a 7-day money-back guarantee.
CAN I USE AN EXISTING MOLD OF MY TEETH FOR MY ORDER?
Unfortunately, we cannot use existing molds to make your guard. We prefer that you go through our impression process to guarantee an accurate fit.
CAN I CANCEL MY ORDER?
We are happy to provide you a full refund within 7 days of delivery of your purchase. The refund will be issued once you return your guard and it is received by MOFO Smile.
The refund will be reflected in your account approximately 5 to 10 business days later depending upon the bank.
