how will i make a plastic orthodontic brace (mouth guard)? Answered

I want to make special braces (mouth guard) in translucent plastic. I think I know how to make the molds based on the instructlab videos, but are there safety issues if I use plastic that is commercially available? What kind of plastic resins are used by dentists for making their braces? Where can I purchase them?

You can buy plastic mouthguards from the pharmacy or chemist You just put them in boiled water and once they are soft you mold them to you're teeth. They cost about $10-$15 AUD
