There is NO RISK. If you do not like the mouthpiece, send it back for a full refund, less your shipping charges and $5 for sterilization and restocking.

I do ask that “trial” mouthpieces be returned, in their original packaging, within 10 days of receipt.

Please make sure that you do not mark, mar, scratch, or otherwise damage the mouthpiece, as a damaged mouthpiece cannot be returned for refund or credit.
