Do you clench or grind your teeth at night? Maybe not you personally, but someone you love. Or maybe you need an athletic mouth guard, or even a teeth whitening tray? Whatever your dental needs ProDental has you covered!
They sent me THREE customizable mouth guards. They are easy fitting, BPA FREE, dentist designed and made in the USA. That’s a trifecta of greatness right there! Each guard has the Frenulum Notch to prevent irritation in your mouth. They have a thick cushioning base to protect your teeth from grinding or sports injuries. The guards are also made of a very soft and flexible material.
Molding the guards to fit my mouth was a cinch. Start by boiling water on your stove or in your microwave. Make sure the water is at least three inches deep. If you have a smaller mouth, you can then trim your mouth guard down some to prevent gagging once you insert it into your mouth. Scissors worked perfectly when I trimmed mine. Those with a bad gag reflex (like myself) will definitely want to trim their guards down some. Once your water has come to a boil, remove the pot (or bowl) from heat. Put your mouth guard into the boiling water for 18-20 seconds. (The best time to remove it is when you see the walls curl slightly together. Over heating the guard could cause the walls to fold over and then stick together.) I used plastic tongs to remove mine from the water. IF you use METAL instruments, then keep them in ice water UNTIL you need to pull your guard out. That way, they won’t get stuck to your mouth guard. So pull your guard out of the water. Once you can comfortably touch the guard with your hands, it’s safe to insert it into your mouth. Make sure it fits over all of your teeth. Do this in front of a mirror, so you can get it lined up perfectly. Suck all the air and water out of the mouth guard.
I know, that seems like a lot of work, but trust me when I say it was easy! It only took me a few minutes to get one fitted to my mouth. You can get the ProDental three mouth guard set like mine on Amazon. It retails for $23.90 You can also follow ProDental on Facebook.
