Yeah I did that with the hot water-thing but the gum shield still pops out. The one I bought had to be hot-water moulded to start.


Yep...that's the way it is done, and if that doesn't work buy a new gum shield

Well, I went through at least 10 'put-it-in-hot-water' type gum shields and I never found one that would fit me properly until I had one made for me by the dentist. It cost me 35, which is not that much more on what I spent on the others.
