Dental guards are designed to hold your teeth a certain distance apart and in a particular position, thereby eliminating the trigger to grind.
Many people grind their teeth or clench their jaw as a reaction to stress and most often at night, patients are unaware they grind until signs or symptoms arise. Bruxism is highly damaging to natural teeth and restorations. It can cause facial pain, and ringing in the ears, and compromise proper jaw alignment.
1. Immerse the tray in hot water at about 158°F (70 ° C) to the depth that the tray can be completely submerged. Remove it after 30 seconds. The erection of the tray should be slightly rolled up and collapsed.
2. Gently dry the water and quickly wear it accurately to the gum bed. Suck the tray to discharge the air between the tray and the gum bed. Press the contact surface between the tray and the tooth with fingers, while holding the inner surface with the tip of the tongue to squeeze out the air and water.
3. Remove the tray after 10 seconds. Put it in cold water to wash and observe whether the gum line is clear.
I fell in love with these mouth guards. I’m really looking forward to going to bed after shaping these and realizing how comfortable they are. Basically, you put them in hot water for a few seconds, take them out with a spoon, and then stuff things into your mouth. Bite it down, suck it, shape it with your tongue, and you’re done! The first night was blissful. Loved these!

I went to the dentist and he suggested I wear a mouth guard because of my teeth grinding. I immediately refused to buy a dental guard over $700 from them. Teeth are important, so I don’t want to choose the wrong mouth protector, but it’s a lifesaver. The pain in my jaw lessened and the grinding of my teeth disappeared. Not sure how long I can use OTC, but it’s doing the trick right now! Would highly recommend.
If you follow the instructions, you should not have mold problems. It was easy to use and very comfortable! I was amazed at how good the product was at this price.

I tried this for the first time last night and it worked well! I didn’t wake up with a jaw pain because of my teeth grinding! If you follow the instructions, they can easily shape into your teeth.
Super easy to mold, fit well! My husband said it was comfortable to sleep with at night. This protects his teeth while he grinds at night.

I have a messy, very small mouth. These are great. Mold and trim down to fit. EASY! 3 minutes process. They sent a few. Loved this product. The dentist offered to make me some for $350.
