Does your child have tooth pain at night, or when they wake up from sleeping? Do they wake up from tooth pain? If so, you could use a quality child tooth pain home remedy. Below is a list of popular home remedies for child tooth pain at night.

Before looking at those, however, consider the remedy your child's dentist would be most likely to suggest—a quality nightguard like the CustMbite Nightguard. The CustMbite Nightguard was designed to provide a barrier between your child's teeth. Frequently, tooth pain at night is caused by bruxism, or teeth grinding. With a nightguard in place, your child's teeth cannot grind, thus solving the problem of tooth pain.

Home remedies for child tooth pain at night

While some of these home remedies for toothaches may help if your child's tooth pain is not related to bruxism, they won't help at all if it is. That's why you need a CustMbite nightguard.

One of the symptoms of bruxism is loose teeth. With younger children, it's hard to tell if a tooth is naturally loose or if it has loosened due to bruxism. If you suspect it's because of bruxism, a proper nightguard can help alleviate loose tooth pain in children. To get loose tooth pain relief for your child, read on to learn how a nightguard can help.

How a nightguard can help bruxism and loose tooth pain in your child

The CustMbite Nightguard comes in two sizes — kid and adult — so no matter how old your child is, there is a nightguard to fit them. It's also a custom-fit nightguard in that your child will mold it to their teeth when they first receive it. This only takes about 2 minutes using a microwave and a bowl of cold water.

This custom fit does two important things. First, it helps the nightguard stay in all night. This is beneficial because a nightguard that falls out on the pillow doesn't do any good at all. Second, it makes the nightguard more comfortable so your child will be willing to wear it each night. A nightguard your child refuses to wear also doesn't do any good.

If your child has braces, you may have a hard time finding a nightguard made for them. The CustMbite Nightguard is perfect for children with or without braces. There are special fitting instructions for kids with braces. And best of all, the nightguard can be remolded each time your child's bite changes. You don't need to purchase a new nightguard each time their teeth shift or when the braces come off.

The CustMbite Nightguard is made with our patented Vistamaxx material, which is both flexible and comfortable to wear and strong enough to keep your child's teeth from grinding at night. It's also easy to clean. It doesn't absorb saliva, water, or bacteria, and can be simply cleaned using our All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner.
