DenTek Platinum Dental Guard

If you or your partner suffers with stress, you may find that you grind your teeth when you sleep, you may have a condition called Bruxism.

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is where you grind your teeth when you are asleep, you may not have any symptoms and even know you are doing it. Or you may find you suffer with an aching jaw or headaches when you wake in the morning.

Symptoms of teeth grinding include

  • facial pain
  • headaches
  • earache
  • pain and stiffness in the jaw joint – temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
  • disrupted sleep for either you or your partner
  • worn-down teeth, which can lead to increased sensitivity and even tooth loss
  • broken teeth or fillings

The pain often disappears when you stop grinding your teeth, you should see your dentist if your partner tells you about your teeth grinding, your teeth feel worn or sensitive, you suffer jaw, face or ear pain.

I have often spoken about TMD as this is something my Daughter suffers with along with her chronic illness, and it is actually quite common.

DenTek Platinum Dental Guard

The DenTek Platinum Dental Guard combines the ease of a ready to wear dental guard with the customization of a formed guard.  Which will protect against damage caused by night-time teeth grinding with the customized guard for ultimate comfort.

  • Band adjusts two ways to customize the length and angle while comfort strips adjust for a custom fit
  • Ready to use right out of the box, no boiling water, heating, or molding required
  • 2 way adjustable band and cushioned bite pads
  • Contoured bumpers for comfort
  • 6 month protection guarantee
  • Includes antimicrobial storage case

Our Thoughts

As I stated above and in previous posts my daughter suffers with TMD, and she has a mouth guard she uses which we had moulded for her at the dentist. She uses this at night to help her jaw. She hates using it and often I will find she has taken it out during the night when asleep.

I asked her to try this guard, and she found it much easier and much more comfortable than her proper dentist guard, and she kept it in all night and did not moan about it the next morning.

    I tried one a few years ago when my dentist said I grind my teeth. I found it really uncomfortable so I binned it (after paying £80) and now I wish I hadn’t!

    My Wife is a chronic pain sufferer and as such always has a clenched jaw which she can never relax that leads to TMJ. Also she has bruxism which has lead to her smashing her 4 wisdom teeth vertically rendering them unsaveable. I would love her to try this to see if if could help to relax her jaw. thanks for this info.

    I have always had issues with grinding my teeth in my sleep and so I do use a mouthguard as it helps teach my body not to do so (which isn’t working, tbh) and also helps me sleep now I’ve had one so long – definitely worth investing in! I’ve worn half my teeth away before I started using it!

    I have one of the big gum shield type ones and it’s so uncomfortable, can’t believe how much grinding has moved my teeth, my bite used to line up just fine and now I have a noticeable gap and I swear they stick out more

    The only guard I have had was a brace .. I do suffer badly from TMJ and keep putting going to the dentist due to cost… my teeth are actually flattening off with the constant grinding.. I also bite my tongue when I sleep…….. this would be invaluable. xxx fingers crossed. x

    No. As previously I had no need that I was aware of.

    Unfortunately the last few months have brought stress :- From others, who ideally should have been provided the opposite. Such is the Real World.

    Throughout that stressful time :- I found that with the excessive stress I had begun to tightly clench my teeth :- Caused damage to inside of mouth, and tongue. To the extent that there was swelling, and also bleeding. Part of a filing fell loose also.

    Certainly would love to win this product. I have had tempomandibular joint dysfunction for decades. No mouth guard offered when I was in childhood :- Perhaps they were not available.

    Also with Dentist :- It is a Two tiered system. That being NHS ( National Health Service) and Private. This I believe has led to POOR service provision for some. I do know from what I have read in regards to History :- Bevan had wanted FREE Dental Care for ALL at the point of NEED. Yet unfortunately some ( maybe majority) of dentists removed teeth and provided dentures :- Real reason being it provided them with more money ( Not the Aim of the NHS). There are a variety of Services which are Two tiered e.g. Doctors :- Consultants, Dentists, Chiropodists, possibly more. This has been detrimental to meeting NEEDS of the Public.

    I have received Private Service :- Dentures and Veneers via Dentist. At that time I was in paid employment, I was concerned about staining of front teeth where I had small fillings ( Seemed when I was young School Dentist was frequently filling or removing teeth from my mouth). When ideally natural teeth are surely best for us.

    Back to Private Dental Care experience. When I asked about veneers :- I had seen poster in waiting room. I was informed yes, I could have veneers, they were suitable for me. Though available privately. I asked if I could pay in instalments :- Told yes. Also told about private dentures available :- I also went for those, and they were much much better than what I had previously had (via NHS). So there can be a Range of Options.

    Seems that perhaps the client / patient is not the centre of Care / priority. Business is likely the Driving Force in lots of aspects within Britain.

    Yet, surely level of Care impacts on long term outcomes. May cost the individual, and / or NHS at the time and in the longer term.

    Oh! For a Return to people working for a living. NEEDS being a Priority, etc. As Quality of Life is Important for ALL.
