Elite Double Crush FAQs
What is the indication for a nightguard?
Nightguards are especially helpful to relieve the pain caused from nighttime clenching and grinding.
• These mouthguards can keep teeth from moving, protect expensive dental work, and protect teeth from wear and damage caused by your teeth grinding, clenching or jaw joint (TMJ) problems.
• Our mouth guard can also be worn during the day or throughout the night
Which type of Night Guard should I order?
• Please see this article http://mouthguardstore.com/articles/which-is-better-a-hard-or-soft-nightguard
• Generally a soft guard is for light clenchers, while the dual laminate is for moderate to severe clenching and the hard process guard is best suited for severe clenching.
Will I be able to make my own dental impression?
• Taking your own impression is not difficult providing you follow our step-by-step instructions.
• Also watch the impression video link for more help:
• Remember to push the teeth through the material until the teeth lightly touch the tray without tearing through it.
• Note: It is important to remember that a good impression should show both your teeth and gums.
How long does it take to get my Night Guards back?
• You will receive your Night Guard usually within 7 business days although the complete processing time may vary slightly.
Care and Use
• Simple place the nightguard into your mouth before sleeping
• Most people adjust to the new appliance within a few days.
• Store a soft nightguard dry and clean with soap and water.
• The hard acrylic or dual laminate guard can be cleaned on the hard surface with a tooth brush and occasionally cleaned with a denture cleanser.
• Keep all mouthguards away from heat or pets and store in the protective case.
