Boil the water – for the best results, the boiling water should be poured into the cup when it is fully boiling, don’t leave the kettle to stand after it has boiled.
Pour the boiling water into the cup- immediately submerge the Opro shield mouth guard for 20 seconds.
Take the opro shield out of the boiling water (can use a spoon if necessary) and quickly rinse it under a tap or put it in a cup of cold water for a single second.
Immediately put it straight into your mouth. Bite tight together , and while holding your teeth tightly together, suck very hard. This forces your tongue into the inside of the Opro shield.
Carefully place the Opro shield in your mouth so it covers the upper teeth and firmly bite down. Keeping your mouth closed, force your fingers around your lips to mould the outside of the mouthguard. Use a firm, massaging movement, and keep it going until 30 seconds is up.
Now, take the mouthguard out, and rinse it thoroughly in cold water, either in a cup, or under a running tap.
