What You Should Look For in a Nightguard
A nightguard is a device worn if you have bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) or TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder and you want to relieve the tooth pain caused by these conditions. There are several things to look at when you choose a nightguard, and we believe your best option is the CustMbite Nightguard. Our nightguard checks all the boxes for fit, protection, comfort, ease of maintenance, and cost. Continue reading to learn about each of these qualities.
The first thing you want to look at in a nightguard is if it is custom-fit to your teeth. Many of the nightguards available today are customizable for your teeth, so this isn’t a difficult quality to find.
One thing that can be difficult to find is a nightguard that can easily be custom-fit to your teeth if you wear braces. As people of all ages suffer from bruxism and TMJ disorder, you may find a need for this quality. The CustMbite Nightguard was designed to fit over braces and comes with special fitting instructions for wearers of braces.
Even better, the CustMbite Nightguard is remoldable—each time your teeth move enough that the nightguard no longer fits snugly, you can remold the CustMbite Nightguard to fit again. You can do this again once the braces come off. This is extremely valuable because it prevents you from having to buy a new nightguard each time your teeth shift a substantial amount.
Superior Protection From Pain
Another important quality in a nightguard is protection. The guard must be strong enough to stand up to your nighttime efforts to grind and clench your teeth. There are numerous nightguards on the market that cost less than $20, but the axiom, “You get what you pay for,” comes to mind here. If it costs you $15 for a nightguard that your teeth will shred within a week, have you saved money? Not if the $49.95 CustMbite Nightguard lasts for six months. If you can get a pack of 6 nightguards for $20, what does that tell you about their quality and how long they will last?
There are even higher-priced nightguards, some as much as $130, but they do not offer any better protection than the CustMbite Nightguard. Our nightguard is made from our patented VistaMaxx material, which was designed with the assistance of dental professionals to offer superior protection from the consequences of bruxism and TMJ disorder. We are so sure it will be effective that we offer a money-back guarantee that it will work well for you.
Comfortable Fit and Wear
The fact is, you’re not going to continue to wear an uncomfortable nightguard. If it jabs into your gums painfully, you’ll yank it out whether you do so when you’re awake or asleep. If you wake up with abrasions or blisters from wearing it, you won’t be wearing it the next night.
Our VistaMaxx material is guaranteed to be comfortable as well as strong and protective. It’s much more flexible than many nightguards available over the counter and it stays put once you place it each night. There are no sharp edges that can dig into your gums or lips. When you wear the nightguard, you’ll be able to drink water in the middle of the night, speak clearly, and breathe easily all without removing the guard.
If the back of the CustMbite Nightguard is too long to fit comfortably, all you have to do is cut off the excess material. If you’re tempted to purchase a nightguard that costs less than CustMbite’s, consider what this may mean for the comfort of the product. Do they have a guarantee? If not, it would be a good idea to obtain your nightguard from an organization that backs its product 100%.
Ease of Maintenance
Again, not all nightguards are made equally well. But the FDA has evaluated and cleared the CustMbite Nightguard for use and it is free of latex, phthalates, BPA, and PVC so it is perfectly safe to use night after night. Since it doesn’t absorb water, saliva, or bacteria, it’s also easy to clean. Just wash it with gentle soap and warm water each morning and put it in its ventilated case to dry out over the day. Or if you prefer, you can put the nightguard in its case and toss it in the top rack of the dishwasher each day to wash with your dishes.
Where can I get a CustMbite Nightguard for myself or my child?
As you know by now, the cheapest nightguard is not necessarily the best one to buy and neither is the most expensive one. Value is important both in the realm of cost and in the area of quality. At $49.95, the CustMbite Nightguard is affordable as it will last a good long time and provide excellent protection whether you have braces or not. You can choose a regular or petite size nightguard in your choice of 5 colors. Order the nightguard that is the best deal on the market, and you’ll be glad you chose the CustMbite Nightguard.
