Partnership with SmartGuard
Better Nights = Better Days
If you’ve ever suffered from clenching or grinding your teeth at night, you know how hard it is to find a dental guard that’s comfortable, effective + affordable. The SmartGuard Dental Guard is all three… and it’s as high quality as what you’d receive at the dentist. Instructions are easy-to-follow for a personal fit x overnight comfort set this guard apart from the rest. Simply add it to your nighttime regimen + experience the relief.
We talked to Emily C. from OH about SmartGuard, and here is what she had to say:
Q: Describe how you followed the molding instructions and how easy it was to get a great fit with this dental guard.
Emily C.: I briefly softened the Smartguard in boiling water & cooled my teeth and fingertips with cold water. Holding the hard corners, I made sure the front rim was pulled open, swallowed the water and inserted the guard, using the V-notch for centering. Biting down, I sucked the moisture out of the mold to vacuum seal it strongly to my teeth and finished molding it with my fingers before submerging it in cold water to harden. Ready for bed!
Q: Explain any teeth clenching or grinding issues you have had. How did the SmartGuard Dental Guard provide relief for you?
Emily C.: I have a severe clenching issue awake or asleep, because of medication side effects. Resisting is painful and it's causing my teeth to move & wear. The SmartGuard gave me just enough space that I could sleep without worrying about causing further crowding or headaches. I'm so pleased, I may also try it awake when the clenching is particularly bad.
Q: Describe how comfortable it is to wear this dental guard overnight.
Emily C.: It's much more comfortable than the hard resin and metal retainers we all grew up with, and it takes no longer to get used to than common whitening methods. After a couple of minutes, I just forget I had it in.
Q: How would you compare the design and effectiveness of the SmartGuard Dental Guard to other dental guards you’ve worn?
Emily C.: The other guard I've tried was not concentrated on my front teeth, but instead covered most of them. Not only did I keep choking a little and waking up, but I bit all the way through the back half of each set in less than one night and had to remove the pieces before choking. Total failure. The front teeth method here prevented all of that (which was my hope when trying the SmartGuard).
Q: What are your favorite benefits of the SmartGuard Dental Guard?
Emily C.: The best parts were not waking up choking on pieces of broken guard, skipping my breakfast headache, and not feeling like I had a huge dental mold in my mouth all night. Plus once you have the mold made, it goes in and out pretty easy since it's adhering to so many fewer teeth.
Q: How do you feel about the quality of this product for the pricing?
Emily C.: I feel like it was priced comparably to the other bite guard products and did a pretty good job backing up it's claims. Since it didn't end up in the trash, it also wasn't a waste of money like my previous experiences. That's basically saving me future money as well.
