How To Fit An Occlusal Guard From CustMbite

CustMbite makes the best easy-to-fit occlusal guard on the market. If you need to wear a mouthguard because of bruxism, a condition associated with teeth grinding and jaw clenching, CustMbite offers one of the most comfortable occlusal guards you'll find. Our FDA-cleared occlusal guard is made from a patented polymer known as Vistamaxx. This special material offers superior cushioning without feeling as cumbersome as many other protective mouthpieces. This special material also makes it easy to mold our guard to your mouth. All you need is boiling water or a microwave. The process only takes a couple of minutes, and you can remold it multiple times without reducing its effectiveness. Our mouthguards are so easy to fit that we're confident in saying anyone can learn how to fit an occlusal guard by CustMbite.

Why should I wear a custom occlusal guard?

Wearing an easy-to-mold occlusal guard by CustMbite may help reduce the side effects of grinding, such as headaches, a sore jaw, and in some cases, fractured or broken teeth. If you clench your jaw or grind your teeth throughout the day, an occlusal guard for teeth grinding may help lessen the damage done to your teeth from bruxing. This might reduce the chances of you spending a small fortune on dental procedures.

Why is it important for my occlusal guard to fit well?

The last thing you want is to wear an uncomfortable mouthpiece that irritates your mouth. If you don't know how to fit your guard so it sits comfortably in your mouth, you may be less likely to wear it when you need it. As you already know, a protective mouthpiece offers little protection when it's sitting in the case. Fortunately, our easy-to-fit occlusal guard is designed for maximum comfort. We gave it a low-profile design so that wearing it doesn't feel like a literal mouthful. If you've worn other mouthpieces before and weren't a fan, you'll probably be surprised with just how easy it is to breathe, drink, and speak while wearing our guard.

How to mold your occlusal guard

We weren't joking when we said learning how to mold an occlusal guard is a quick and easy process. If you've ever used a mouthguard before, you may be familiar with the boiling method. This is when you boil your guard in a pot of water so it can get soft enough to form a mold around your teeth. While you can do this with a CustMbite occlusal guard, you don't have to. The molding process is even easier now. All you have to do is microwave your guard for 30 seconds, then dunk it into a bowl of cold water until it's cool down enough to touch. Once it's safe to handle, pop it in your mouth and bite down lightly for two minutes. When it's done, you'll have a near-custom dental fit from your guard.

Can I wear a CustMbite occlusal guard if I have braces?

Definitely! We pride ourselves on being one of the most comfortable guards for people wearing orthodontic gear. If you're worried about how to fit an occlusal guard for braces, don't be. Our slimline guards are designed to rest comfortably over brackets and wires, giving you superior protection when compared to other mouthguards on the market. There aren't any special steps to follow when molding the guard to your teeth if you wear braces. Just heat the mouthpiece in boiling water or a microwave, dip it in cool water, then put it in your mouth and bite down. Because CustMbite guards can be remolded several times, you don't have to buy a new mouthpiece every time the orthodontist adjusts your braces. Just repeat the molding process to get a new near-custom fit that forms naturally around your braces.

Our occlusal guards are easy to maintain

If you've worn mouthguards in the past, you already know how tedious the cleaning process can be. Many guards have to be scrubbed with special soap before soaking for hours in an approved cleaning solution. Fortunately, we've made the cleaning process for CustMbite guards as simple as possible. Because our mouthpieces are made out of a material that prevents bacteria and saliva from being absorbed into the guard, you don't have to soak your mouthpiece for hours at a time. Simply wash the bacteria off the surface of your occlusal guard with soap and water, or toss it into the dishwasher if you don't feel like cleaning it by hand.

Where can I buy CustMbite occlusal guards?

CustMbite has created an easy-to-mold occlusal guard that offers top-notch comfort and may help to protect your teeth from the damages of grinding and jaw clenching. Dentists across the country recommend and sell CustMbite guards because of their superior durability and comfort. Best of all, our guards cost a fraction of the price of some of the other guards you'll find at your orthodontist's office. If you're ready for a better sleep experience, buy the best guard for bruxism today.

Five star reviews don't lie

Better than the "fancy" dentist one I had

I have been a chronic teeth grinder for as long as I can remember. A few years back I paid an arm and a leg for a custom night guard from my dentist. About a month ago I decided to get a puppy that tears up just about everything within reach, including my expensive night guard that was sitting on my nightstand. I ended up looking for a new one online and decided to try CustMbite. This nightguard was about a third of the price as my old one, but I love it so much more. It is not as bulky and feels much more comfortable. I highly recommend to anyone in the market for a night guard for grinding.
