If you have bruxism or teeth grinding issues, and are wearing down your teeth in the night, you need to protect your teeth with a dental night guard.

The thing is, the company that you choose to buy from can make a big difference. When people are starting out with these nighttime mouth guards, they are often unsure about whether they will have the discipline to keep using one or not. The difference has to do with how well the mouthguard fits, and how convenient it is to use night after night. This is a long-term problem – so you’ll need a long-term solution! We make it easy for customers to really take the bull by the horns and beat the weathering aspects of bruxism that wear teeth down over time.

Custom Molding

We ship everything you need to your door to allow you to create that custom mold that’s going to keep your teeth in good shape for years to come. This easy DIY impression kit is vital to your success with your nighttime routine.

Avoid one size fits all night guards

These types are available at any local drug store or general store and they may be tempting to purchase. After all, they’re affordable and they protect your teeth, right?

Customers express a high dissatisfaction rate with mass produced night guards for a variety of reasons. The main reasons are improper fit, cheap material that doesn’t last and lack of transparency when attempting to verify the safety of the material.

Safe Mouthguard Material

Here’s another very important part of designing the best nighttime mouth guards. Some inferior products may contain BPA, resins and other potentially harmful substances. The safety of material is especially important with these types of products, because this is something you’re going to put in your mouth – and continuously wear nightly. If you’re having difficulty verifying the materials used to make your night guard you might consider putting it directly in the trashcan. Your health is more important.

There are also long-term reasons to avoid the same types of chemicals and leaching that our mouthguards prevent. As these contaminants build up in our bodies, they can cause long-term health issues.

Superior Fit

Custom night guards are hand crafted based on a stone mold of your teeth. The guard will stay in place and offer full protection against teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Your night guard should fit snug but not too tight. We perform a fit accuracy check for every order before shipment.

Sleep better

When your night guard fits well, you know the material is safe and your teeth are being protected, guess what happens? You sleep better! We want you to sleep peacefully, and safely, every night.
