Headaches are a pain in the — head. They're no fun. They're especially troublesome if you get them on a daily or near-daily basis. The kind of dull headache that starts in your temples may be a result of grinding your teeth (bruxism). If you grind your teeth during the day, you can work hard to stop doing so. The problem is that you also most likely grind your teeth while you're sleeping, and there's really nothing you can do to stop yourself from doing so.

That's why CustMbite has developed two nightguards that can help people of all ages and all intensities of bruxism (teeth grinding) stop grinding their teeth during sleep. Continue reading to learn about other bruxism symptoms and find out whether the CustMbite Nightguard or the CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard is the right product to help eliminate your headaches from teeth grinding.

What are some common symptoms of bruxism?

While headaches are a common sign that you have bruxism, there are other symptoms that could indicate you suffer from this condition. They include:

  • Chipped, flattened, loose, or fractured teeth
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Increased tooth sensitivity or pain
  • Tired or tight jaw muscles
  • Jaw, neck, or face pain
  • Ear pain that is not caused by an ear infection
  • Sleep disruption

What is the best nightguard to stop headaches from grinding teeth?

CustMbite has developed, with the assistance of dental professionals, two nightguards that can help reduce the pressure caused by grinding your teeth, thus reducing headaches caused by doing so.

  • CustMbite Nightguard
    The standard CustMbite Nightguard is good for people who have mild to moderate pain from teeth grinding upon waking or during the day. It's also good for children, as it comes in both regular and petite sizes. You can even choose which color nightguard you want. It's flexible and comfortable and perfect for mild to moderate bruxism.
  • CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard
    The CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard is designed for those who need a bit more durability in a nightguard. If you experience moderate to severe pain from bruxism, or if your teeth chew through a standard nightguard, this is the choice for you. It comes with a flat edge that allows your teeth to move freely while keeping you from grinding them together. It's the perfect nightguard for people with more intense bruxism.

Both the CustMbite Nightguard and the CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard are made of our Vistamaxx material, which is flexible and soft while also being tough enough to keep your teeth from grinding together. The Vistamaxx material does not absorb water, saliva, or bacteria, so it's easy to keep clean using our All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner. Just spray the cleaner on, wipe it off, rinse the nightguard, and it is clean and sanitized, ready for the next time you go to sleep.

Both nightguards are customizable to your specific bite. This has two main benefits. First, it makes the guard more comfortable, so you're more likely to wear it night after night rather than leaving it sitting on the bathroom counter. Second, it keeps the nightguard in your mouth all night rather than allowing it to fall out onto your pillow. These are both important, as a nightguard that isn't in your mouth all night is not an effective nightguard.

Where can I get the best nightguard to relieve headaches from teeth grinding?

The CustMbite nightguards have been evaluated and cleared by the FDA and are made entirely in the United States. You can rely on them to be a top-quality product. Order the right nightguard for your situation online today and say goodbye to headaches from teeth grinding for good.

Your comfort is our highest priority.
