At first glance, it might seem like nightguards and retainers are virtually identical. Both are essentially pieces of plastic that go inside your mouth while you sleep. However, there are actually quite a few differences between these oral appliances, and you should be aware of these differences if you're trying to address serious issues like bruxism (also known simply as “teeth grinding”). The truth is that if you pick the wrong device for the job at hand, your issues could become significantly worse.
Fortunately, choosing the best oral appliances is easy when you select from the wide range of options provided by CustMbite. These products are the result of painstaking research by dentists with decades of experience, and all mouthguards sold by CustMbite are made right here in the United States. Better yet, certain CustMbite mouthguards are specifically designed to address certain issues, like bruxism and TMJ disorder.
The most obvious difference between these two devices is their intended use. If you're simply trying to keep your teeth aligned, you need a retainer. For grinding teeth, you should instead choose a mouthguard. This is because you can purchase mouthguards that are specifically designed to protect teeth from grinding damage. On the other hand, a retainer just isn't intended to be used in that manner. In fact, the term “retainer for teeth grinding” is a bit of a misnomer, since a retainer offers virtually zero protection against the adverse effects of bruxism.
Nightguards may also be used for snoring. A prime example of this is the CustMbite Snoring System, which addresses the root cause of snoring by guiding your tongue away from your airway. With the airway clear, it becomes much easier to breathe clearly and avoid snoring. The CustMbite Snoring System can also protect your teeth against grinding damage as an added bonus.
Retainers are generally made from hard plastic. In contrast, products like the CustMbite Nightguard uses Vistamaxx material to achieve a lightweight, flexible, and softer feel. This means that a nightguard that is specifically designed to address bruxism is typically much more comfortable. In fact, you can wear CustMbite Nightguards while eating, drinking, and talking. Many individuals forget that they're even wearing these low-profile oral appliances as they drift off to sleep. On the other hand, a retainer can be an annoying presence in your mouth that leads to sleep disturbances.
In addition, you should know that if you want to use a retainer for teeth grinding, you're going to miss out on a number of customization options. Because of how CustMbite products are designed, you can mold them to fit your oral cavity once you receive your device. Not only that, but you can continue to reshape your device multiple times, which is useful for children who are growing new teeth – or for those with TMJ disorder that are slowly re-aligning their jaws.
A mouthguard for bruxism offers additional features that protect your teeth from grinding damage. For example, the CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard provides you with a dependable hard surface layer that prevents your teeth from grinding against each other. However, it does not lock your jaw into place, and you can still move your teeth around in a comfortable, natural manner. This means that a mouthguard can not only be more comfortable than a retainer, but it can also be much more effective in the fight against bruxism.
By now, you should be aware that the solution for bruxism is not to purchase a retainer for teeth grinding. Instead, consider the various solutions offered by CustMbite:
