Night guards 2023

Do night guards really work?

Does a night guard for teeth really work?

At Nxtrnd, we are regularly asked about non-dentist made teeth grinding mouth guards and how effective they are at protecting teeth. This is an understandable question, because the process of ordering our professional at-home mouthguards for teeth grinding is new in comparison to purchasing one from your dentist.

As with any new technology, people wonder, "Do Nxtrnd Mouthguards really work?" and the answer is, yes.

If you want to get a better night sleep while protecting your teeth from the damaging effects of teeth grinding without the costly dentist price tag, this is the best solution for you.

A Nxtrnd night guard looks similar to the trays used for teeth whitening and tightly sits over your teeth to protect the enamel from grinding and clenching.

Also referred to as bite guard, bruxism mouthguard, or occlusal splint, these devices do not actually stop you from grinding your teeth, their main purpose is to shield and cushion the teeth from the excessive forces generated between the upper and lower teeth when clenching and biting at night.

How do I know if I grind my teeth at night?

Most people aren't aware they grind their teeth at night until their significant other tells them so, or until they see the wear marks on their teeth. If you suffer from headaches, jaw pain or feel tired in the morning, chances are you clench and grind your teeth at night. An easy and quick solution would be to protect those teeth with a night guard.

In fact, wearing a mouth guard for teeth grinding or jaw clenching can provide relief from TMJ pain and protect from excessive wear on teeth enamel. For light to moderate grinders, we recommend a night time guard such as the Nxtrnd Rise. If you are a severe grinder, we recommend a hard acrylic mouth guard. In both case, you should always consult with your dentist prior to purchase to better understand the severity of your teeth grinding.

Can a night guard shift your teeth

The answer is yes and no.

A properly made custom-fitting night guard will not shift your teeth.
However, if made from hard material and not properly fitted, a night guard can shift your teeth. Because night guards are tight fitting, when badly fitted they can put pressure on your teeth and slowly move them over time.

How long does it take for a night guard to work?

When wearing a properly fitted night guard for teeth grinding, you're going to notice immediate symptom diminishment.

We recommend sticking with your mouth guard for at least 4-5 weeks before noticing marked improvements. After this amount of time, sleeping with a mouth guard should feel normal and your jaw pain, facial pain, and other symptoms tend to resolve. Night guards are not a solution to teeth grinding, but do provide the much needed relief.
