Over time the constant grinding and/or clenching can wear down the enamel. This can cause rapid tooth decay and replacing those teeth will cost roughly between $3500-$7000!!!

Other common effects of teeth grinding include loosened teeth, breaking existing dental work (bridges, crowns, partials, etc.), extreme tooth sensitivity, worn out & or flattened chewing surfaces (including cusps and the natural contours and grooves of your dental anatomy -making chewing food difficult). You can read more about that here.

So, what can you do to avoid all of this money and time needed to fix teeth from teeth grinding?

You can buy a quality night guard!

Recently, my husband had the chance to review a Night Guard from Sentinel Mouth Guards and so far the results have been amazing.

First, let me talk about the process…

When you visit the Sentinel Mouth Guards website you can shop a variety of mouth guards. Depending on your needs, you’ll choose a mouth guard that is suited for you. If you are not sure, there is a handy explanation of how to choose the right mouth guard.

Once you’ve chosen the correct mouth guard you’ll go through the checkout process and place your order. All orders include free shipping within the US. One you’ve placed your order, watch your mail for your dental impression kit. It will look like this:

Your kit will include:

  • (2) Different Sized Dental Impression Trays
  • Mixing Putty (base & catalyst)
  • Easy to follow instructions for getting your dental impression
  • Prepaid return mailing label to send back your dental impression to Sentinel Mouth Guards

Following the instructions is easy. You first start by mixing the mixing putty.

You then place it inside the tray that correctly fits your mouth.

Then you stick the tray into your mouth and wait 3 full minutes to allow the impression to take place.

When all is said and done, you’ll have a dental impression that is ready to be sent back to Sentinel. You can do this by using the prepaid envelope that will be shipped directly back to the company.

They will use this impression to make your custom fitted mouth guards and when ready, they’ll mail them back to you.

All that is left to do is try them on and wear them at night or any time you feel like grinding your teeth.

I won’t lie, my husband tried mouth guard’s years ago and he hated them. Which is funny because when we moved into our new home he just happened to “lose them” during the move.

Not to mention, those custom made night guards came from our Dentist and they were far more expensive than these.

Since we received the mouth guards from Sentinel, he has been able to use them without feeling like he’s gagging himself while he sleeps. It’s also help saved his teeth and my sanity from the noise that teeth grinding at night causes. Total win-win in my book.

Overall, we highly recommend checking out Sentinel Mouth Guards for all your mouth guard needs.
