Night Guard FAQ's

 

How do night guards work?

Bruxism, or grinding/ clenching of the teeth during sleep, is thought to affect up to 31% of world population. Whilst it is often not possible to cure teeth grinding, you can hugely limit the discomfort and damage caused by wearing a good mouthguard for bruxism. Wearing a mouthguard at night has been shown to reduce grinding episodes by 42% as well as providing a great protective barrier between the teeth to reduce the noise and damage associated with bruxism. 

How do I fit my own night guard?

There's no need to visit your dentist for a quality night guard. Our Night guards can be easily fitted at home by placing the guard into hot water for 30 seconds which makes it soft and pliable so that you can achieve a bespoke fit to your mouth. Full instructions are included with the product.

Why are there 2 teeth grinding guards in the package?

We include 2 sizes of our night guard so that you can choose the size that fits you best. The appropriate size should cover as many teeth as possible whilst not feeling too uncomfortable in the mouth. 

What is Biomaster?

To ensure optimum hygiene, the Echor Night Guard is infused with Biomaster Anti-Microbial Technology which inhibits the growth of bacteria on the product by up to 99.99%. This material is what gives our mouthguards a very slight yellow colour and, most importantly, what sets us apart from the competition.

Does your bruxism guard come with a case?

Yes, it comes with a stylish, grey, hard case which you will see in the product imagery.

What if it does not work for me?

Our sleep night guard comes with the Echor '30 Night Guarantee'. If the product doesn't do what you'd hoped, we'll arrange an alternative or give you a refund within 30 days post-purchase. Read more about our guarantee here.

Is this product a registered medical device?

Yes, this is a registered medical device. The product is registered with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

What happens if I don't get a good fit?

If you fail to achieve a snug and comfortable fit, you are able to re-attempt the fitting process multiple times. If after multiple attempts you fail to achieve an ideal fit, please contact us and we'll be happy to get that resolved for you.

Will it make me gag?

Some people have a much more sensitive gag reflex than others. To help reduce the likelihood of gagging, we have made our grinding mouthguard ultra-slim which makes it feel far less obtrusive in the mouth compared to some of our competitors.

How do i clean the night guard?

Although our night guard is infused with Biomaster Anti-Microbial technology, to ensure optimal hygiene, we recommend that you gently clean the guard with warm water and a toothbrush regularly.
