How do I know if I grind my teeth?
Many people grind their teeth and are completely unaware because it occurs at night while they sleep. Dentists say that over 80% of their patients should actually be wearing a night guard, especially during times of stress - that means the odds are you probably should be wearing one, even if you don't know it. Below are some common symptoms of teeth grinding or clenching:
• Headaches (especially in the morning)
• Jaw pain and soreness
• Disrupted sleep
• Tooth sensitivity
• Worn down teeth
• Cracked teeth, crowns or fillings
• Earaches and/or tinnitus
Do you accept returns?
Yes, we want you to love your night guard! If your guard doesn't fit, please let us know and we're happy to re-make it. If it simply doesn't work for you, let us know and we'll send instructions to receive a full refund.
Is this the same night guard the dentist would make for me?
There are many different types of night guards! This is one of the versions available from the dentist, and we chose it because it will protect your teeth while not disrupting your bite. We make ours thinner too, for optimal comfort. While it's more comfortable to have a thinner guard, if you grind your teeth heavily, you may grind through the material after a few months. If this happens we suggest our subscription option! It's a great way to save money, have the comfort of a thinner guard, and have a new one ready to protect your teeth when needed. However, if you want a thicker guard please email us and we'll accommodate the request!
How do I clean my night guard?
Rinse your guard after each wear, and gently brush with a toothbrush. Do not run under hot water, as this can cause it to lose it's shape. Inevitably it will get harder to clean, which is why we recommend signing up for the subscription option so we can deliver a fresh one to you every four months.
Can I wear a Goodbite night guard if I have a permanent retainer?
Yes, we'll capture that in the impression.
