For years my dental hygienist has been after me to protect my teeth from damage caused by bruxism. Year after year, she would remind me that you are only given one set of permanent teeth. I dreaded going to my semi annual check up because I knew it was going to come up. I knew the custom made mouth guard my dentist made for me was impossible to wear because it was so bulky and uncomfortable. Fast forward a few years and I find myself in a job where learning about bruxism is a part of my everyday life.
It is becoming more clear that while there is no known cure for teeth grinding, there are many possible reasons for night grinding. Stress and teeth misalignment are very common causes of bruxism. There is also a possible relation between sleep apnea and bruxism.
So, here’s the great big elephant in the room...what’s a single woman in her 40’s, a bruxer like me to do? Believe it or not there are many mouth guard options and they work. However, if you want something that isn’t bulky, does not affect the way you look and does not make you gag and drool, you may find yourself in a pickle. I’m here to tell you right now that such a product exists and I will save you time and cut to the chase.

SOVA night guard is all of this and more. It is affordable and an immediate solution to nighttime teeth grinding. But don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself, you will love it!

Time to put in my sexy mouth guard and get some sleep.
