Our mouthpiece can be perceived as large because the bristles must be of the appropriate length and distance from the tooth in order to swing and clean effectively. The basic shape of our mouthpiece, i.e. the base without silicone and bristles, is relatively small and corresponds to the average size of men and women aged 14 and over in Europe.
We have analyzed a total of approx. 2000 dentures, which included dentures of men and women of said age group. This was conducted with the help of data received from a medical university, primary and secondary literature (reference books, journals, studies, scientific reports, ...), as well as our own investigations (dimensions and impressions of dentition sizes of test persons). We did this in order to develop a cost-effective standard size for our customers.
However, we know that for some people the mouthpiece is still too big to wear. For this purpose, we have designed the ends of the mouthpiece to be flexible. If the mouthpiece is too large or too long at the back, you can shorten it yourself with a knife or scissors. Make sure that you only cut away the silicone. The inner plate must not be damaged, but it is easy to feel. In total you can remove approx. 1 cm from the back!
