Teeth Night Guard Lab has gathered the most frequently asked questions about ordering a custom night guard online so that you can be more confident in your decision and feel better informed about the process. Read on to learn more!
1. Which guard is best for protection against teeth grinding and clenching?
When it comes to protection against teeth grinding and clenching, the best night guard is one that’s custom-made for your teeth. There are several advantages to ordering a custom night guard over a premade night guard. The most obvious advantage is comfort: A better-fitting mouthguard will be more comfortable than a generic mouthguard. With a custom-fit night guard, you’re less likely to wake up with chafed skin on your lips because you must wear it all night long.
With a premade mouthpiece, you may find yourself craning or slouching to create space so that you can comfortably wear it through the night; but this puts pressure on sensitive areas like your gums or lower jaw joints. Lastly, try both if you’re still uncertain about how effective one type of mouthpiece would be against your sleep habits. You might find that there’s an option out there for you!
2. How do I know whether to order an upper or lower custom teeth night guard?
Knowing what type of custom night guard you need before ordering is important. The first step is to determine whether your teeth are coming together when you sleep or if they are grinding. If your teeth come together, a lower custom night guard will be more appropriate for your needs. If teeth grind, an upper custom night guard is more appropriate.
If you have chosen that a lower custom tooth night guard will be the best option for your needs, then it is time to determine which size of a lower custom tooth night guard you need. Measure the width of your jaw from earlobe to earlobe and add 3/8 inches to find the width you need for a perfect fit.
Next, measure the distance from the tip of your chin to the bottom front portion of your mouth. Multiply this by two for accurate measurements. Keep these numbers handy as you continue shopping online to compare them against available sizes. Once you decide on a size that fits, check its availability before placing an order.
3. How do I clean and care for my custom teeth night guard?
Your dentist will give you instructions on how to care for your teeth night guard. You should brush your teeth before putting the guard in and use a special brush or toothpaste designed for people with braces or dental appliances. You should also clean the inside of the guard with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste once per day and rinse it out after every use. It is important to read all instructions before starting any dental treatment regimen. The best way to maintain oral health is by brushing at least twice daily, flossing daily, drinking water throughout the day, and avoiding foods that can cause decay.
4. Can I wear a custom teeth night guard if I have implants?
It’s a good idea to get a custom teeth night guard if you have implants, but there are some things to keep in mind. The first aspect is that the night guard must be made of a material compatible with the implant material. For example, your dentist will know if you have titanium implants, and they’ll use one of those materials to make your teeth night guard. If you have had your original teeth removed and replaced with dental implants, you’ll need to have an acrylic-based teeth night guard for you. Another concern is whether or not the custom-fitted teeth night guard will irritate the skin around the mouth where it comes in contact with it.
5. Can I also obtain the teeth mold impression?
Yes! You can purchase a teeth mold impression via the website. The kit’s purpose is to create the teeth impressions and then send them to the lab for fabrication. The teeth impressions are then returned to the laboratory, where your custom night guard will be manufactured. Your custom night guard will arrive in about two weeks.
6. What if I am not satisfied with the product?
Each individual is unique and has different needs, so you’re offered a full refund if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase. The manufacturer’s warranty covers the products for one year from the date of purchase.
It may take up to two weeks to process your order due to the custom nature of the products. Once an order has been processed, it cannot be canceled or returned. It is unacceptable to make returns of customized items such as mouthguards that have been personalized with names or logos. You should also note that shipping charges will not be refunded. All sales are final, so please double-check your order before submitting it.
7. What if the teeth impression I take is not adequate?
If the impression is too small, it may not be able to be replicated on the final night guard. This can happen if your teeth are too close or far apart. The best will be done to make a new impression, but it won’t always work, and it’s not guaranteed that your night guard can be created. For this reason, you should have a professional take an impression of your teeth before ordering a custom night guard online.
To Close Up
Custom night guards are a great way to protect your teeth from the pain of grinding and clenching during sleep. When you have an orthodontic appliance, such as braces, you must wear one while sleeping to protect your teeth. An online night guard will also be less expensive and more convenient than purchasing one at the store.
