Why should I wear a custom night-guard vs an over the counter night-guard from my local drug store?
The over the counter night guards are generic, one size fits all type of guards. They’re made with inferior quality material and never mold to fit quite right. Since they don’t fit properly, they move around and do not do the job they are intended to do
Should I order an upper or a lower guard?
The majority of night guards are worn on top. They fit most comfortably and don’t interfere with your tongue. However, we do make night guards for the bottom. If you’re missing teeth, or you are awaiting dental treatment on your top teeth, you may prefer a lower guard.
Why do I have to take both an upper and lower impression?
To ensure the most comfortable fit, we need to see how your top and bottom teeth naturally fit together when you bite down. Since the night guard acts as a pad between your top and bottom teeth, we want to make sure all teeth are touching evenly.
Can a child wear a night-guard?
We recommend that children are at least 16 years of age before wearing a custom night guard due to the fact that our jaw continues to grow. We would not want to restrict any jaw growth.
How long will it take to receive my night-guard?
Once we receive your impressions back in our lab, turn around time will be approximately 1 week until we send your finished guard back to you.
Do you take dental insurance?
Unfortunately, we do not take dental insurance. However, if you have a flex spending account through your insurance company, you can try submitting our receipt for reimbursement.
I have an existing mold of my teeth, can I use that for my night-guard?
We ask that you go through our impression process as the fit of your night guard is dependant on the accuracy of a current impression.
Are sleep shields comparable to a night-guard I would get from my dentist?
Absolutely, we use the exact same process and materials used in dental labs across North America.
Why is it so much cheaper than what my dentist quoted me?
We are able to offer our night guards much cheaper than your dentist because we are selling directly to you. When a dentist sells you a night guard, you are paying both the lab fee and the dentist’s fee.
