Archtek Grind Guard Thermoformed Dental Tray - Each
Designed to be worn at night as a protection for those who suffer from the night time grinding of teeth. Custom-fits to your teeth after just 10 seconds in warm water. User-friendly front-fitting tab. Patented form-fit technology. Mirrored storage case included.
Directions: Fitting instructions: Bring water to a boil in a container on the stove or in a microwave. The water should be approximately 4 inches in depth so that the entire tray will be immersed, keeping the tab above the water. After the water has come to a boil, remove the container from the heat source. Hold the GrindGuard by the tab and immediately place in the hot water, keeping the tab above the water. Keep the tray immersed in the hot water for 7-10 seconds or until the tray begins to soften. Do not let go of the tab while immersing the tray in the water. Caution: Water and container are hot! Lift the GrindGuard from the water using the tab allowing the water to drain from the inside of the tray. Place the GrindGuard around the upper teeth. The tray will warm but will not burn. Do not bite down on the tray (the formed tray should have no imprint of the lower teeth). Instantly, secure the GrindGuard by pressing the tongue against the back of the upper teeth. While holding the tray firmly in this position, suck out all air and water until the tray molds to a tight fit around the upper teeth. After 20 seconds remove the GrindGuard from the mouth and rinse under cold tap water. If you do not get a tight fit repeat the fitting procedure. Once satisfied with fit, cut or pull off the front fitting tab. For smaller mouths, the GrindGuard may be shortened by cutting along rib marks just above the arrows. Placing the tray in warm water will smooth any rough edges from trimming the tray with scissors. Care and maintenance: After use, rinse under cold tap water. Store in the vented storage case. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from excessive heat.
