Instructions are easy-to-follow for a personal fit x overnight comfort set this guard apart from the rest. Simply add it to your nighttime regimen + experience the relief.
We talked to Carlos L. from IL and here's what he had to say:
Q: Describe how you followed the molding instructions and how easy it was to get a great fit with this dental guard.
Carlos L.: The molding instruction are good. They describe in detail what to do and even recommend you to watch a video available in the web and practice before doing it. I have done this before with other guards and the process is not much different. So I read the instructions and gave it a try. The only difficulty I found is that the instructions recommends to stick a fork to the guard to safely sumerge it in hot water but it doesn't say how deep the fork tine needs to be inserted in the whole provided. I didn't introduce it deep enough and the guard fell off the fork right when I stuck it in the water. This affected my first molding try. The good news is that you can mold it several times if needed to make it fit well. In my second attempt everything went well and I got a very good molding!
“I hardly even noticed the guard in my mouth.”
Q: Explain any teeth clenching or grinding issues you have had. How did the SmartGuard Dental Guard provide relief for you?
Carlos L.: I've had grinding issues for a long time, and it was affecting the root of my teeth. This guard provides enough cushioning to avoid the grinding. I use to wake up even with headaches because of the grinding. This guard has relieved all of those problems.
Q: Describe how comfortable it is to wear this dental guard overnight.
Carlos L.: I found this guard to be superior to others. To start, it is smaller so it doesn't cover all the teeth - just the front 4 - which is genius. There is really no need to cover all the teeth if enough up and lower separation is provided with the front teeth, the other are not going to touch. I also loved the back extension that covers a part of your palate and provide extra grip. During molding the front material can be thin with pressure, which could make it very thin and much more comfortable to wear. I found this guard to be way more comfortable than others I have used. You could sleep with your mouth completely closed whole night.
Q: How would you compare the design and effectiveness of the SmartGuard Dental Guard to other dental guards you’ve worn?
Carlos L.: This guard is way more confortable and effective compared to others I have used. It is smaller and thin, can be molded to the best fit possible. I hardly even noticed the guard in my mouth.
Q: What are your favorite benefits of the SmartGuard Dental Guard?
Carlos L.: Eliminating the grinding I was going through while sleeping is the best benefit of this guard. It is helping me to reduce wear on my teeth surface and roots, and eliminating headaches, which happen as a result of grinding. Also one of the largest benefit is that this guard box contains 2 actual guards which is a whole year of guarding . So price / benefit is also positive!
Q: How do you feel about the quality of this product for the pricing?
Carlos L.: Good quality. The material is soft enough, but at the same time fit right after molding . It is great to see there are two units in the box which makes this product price to be very competitive compared to other options in the market.
