How to Refit a Nightguard from CustMbite
If you're looking for an easy-to-remold night guard, CustMbite guards are the perfect choice. We've worked with both dental professionals and everyday users to develop a comfortable nightguard that can act as a cushion between your top and bottom teeth, which may help prevent or mitigate the adverse health consequences associated with grinding teeth at night. Please continue reading for more information on how to remold a night guard as well as what makes CustMbite stand out in a crowded industry.
What are the benefits of wearing a nightguard?
If you occasionally wake up with a sore jaw, a condition called sleep bruxism may be to blame. It sounds complicated, but sleep bruxism simply means that you have a tendency to grind your teeth or clench your jaw at night. The causes of this condition are unknown and may include stress, sleep disorders, and missing teeth. According to a 2016 study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, people who drink alcohol or smoke tobacco products are also twice as likely to grind their teeth as those who do not. Wearing a nightguard may help protect your teeth from many of the symptoms of sleep bruxism, potentially sparing you from having to pay sizeable dental bills to repair loose teeth or damaged dental work.
Why does my night guard need to fit well?
You want to be comfortable when going to bed, but this fact hasn't stopped our competitors from making bulky guards that can make it difficult to communicate with your significant other or even breathe while wearing them. Needless to say, even the best night guard won't accomplish much if you can't bring yourself to put it in at night. Your dentist can make you a better-fitting nightguard, but the process is time-consuming and generally costs hundreds of dollars.
CustMbite night guards are made with Vistamaxx, a proprietary fitting material that doesn't rely on thickness for its retentive properties. This allows us to offer a thin night guard that you'll look forward to wearing every night without the hassle and expense of going through your dentist.
How do I shape a CustMbite nightguard to the contours of my mouth?
While many boil-and-bites require you to boil a pot of water to begin the fitting process, CustMbite guards can also be heated in the microwave for added convenience. Once your guard is warm enough, follow the steps below to ensure a snug, comfortable fit:
- Dip your guard into cold water for 3-5 seconds, or until it is cool enough to touch.
- Gently bite into your guard to sculpt it to your smile.
- Press the front of your guard to your front teeth, applying pressure from your tongue to the roof of your mouth.
- Finally, close your lips and suck for approximately 60 seconds to get a great fit.
If your guard is too small or too large for your mouth, adjusting it is easy. Just trim back the molar edges to make it smaller, or gently pinch them and stretch to make it longer. Unlike the inferior materials our competitors use, Vistamaxx is also remoldable. If you're curious about how to refit a night guard, all you need to do is repeat the steps above whenever your bite changes. We offer a variety of additional refitting tips, so you'll have a trustworthy resource to consult whenever you have questions.
Can I use CustMbite nightguards if I have braces?
Absolutely! If you want to know how to refit a night guard for braces, it's easy. All you need to do is follow the directions above while skipping the last two steps. Instead, allow the weight of your mouth to naturally guide your CustMbite guard to a comfortable fit. In fact, CustMbite is one of the best custom-fitted nightguards for braces available. Since you can remold your CustMbite guard as often as you like, you won't need to buy a new one after every orthodontic adjustment.
Will my easy-to-refit night guard also be easy to maintain?
Whereas competing guards can get gross quickly, we developed CustMbite night guards with hygiene in mind. Vistamaxx naturally prevents bacteria, saliva, and other contaminants from lodging in the product, helping it stay odor-free and crystal-clear no matter how often you use it. Our guards are dishwasher-safe, and you can also clean them with cold water and a toothbrush if you want. Every guard also comes with a ventilated case to encourage proper storage.
