Although there are some no-boil DIY mouthpiece kits that can be purchased by consumers who do not want to shell out tons of money for a tailor-made orthodontic appliance, Damage Control created another way for consumers to create custom mouthguards with 3D printing technology. Damage Control has consumers begin the custom mouthguard-making process by purchasing an impression kit and taking an impression of their own teeth. From there, the impression is to be shipped to Damage Control so that a mouthguard can be made to perfectly fit one's mouth.

Across the dental industry, 3D printing has become a key part of making everything from dental crowns and night guards to retainers. However, fuelled by technologies like 3D printing, a number of healthcare kits are emerging to help consumers take tests or create appliances to enhance their own well-being from the comfort of their own home.
