Innovative Dental Grind Guard Provides Solution to Help Combat Holiday Stress and Bruxism
The Ora-GUARD® from Bite Tech Inc. is a new approach to relieving symptoms of teeth grinding, a condition that often increases during the holidays.
More commonly known as excessive teeth grinding and jaw clenching, Bruxism is considered a growing oral health problem, as the estimated population affected by this affliction is now at nearly 70 million Americans.
Dr. William Balanoff, DDS, MS, FICD and one of the inventors of Ora GUARD®, estimates that bruxism affects more than 30 percent of the adult population in the United States alone. Individuals are suffering from more than just broken teeth and worn-down enamel. Ninety percent of bruxism sufferers also report secondary symptoms, including disturbed sleep, headaches, neck and facial pain, pain behind the eyes, vertigo, hearing problems, laryngitis or even numbness in the arm or hands. Bruxism is a serious problem for most people who suffer from these negative consequences.
The holiday season is a hectic and busy time, often resulting in stress and anxiety. Even though stress is not necessarily a bad thing, too much of it is not good for overall health and well-being. But the physical effects of stress can be negative most of the time, manifesting itself throughout the body, and bruxism is a by-product of stress.
The gradual onset of mild or severe headaches, jaw or TMJ pain and tooth sensitivity are only a few of the symptoms that are indicators of bruxism. An individual can grind or clench his or her teeth throughout the day and night and may not be aware they are doing so. The grinding can become so severe that it can be disruptive to others’ sleep as well. While there is no medication currently available to relieve bruxism, the recommended treatment is the use of a dental grind guard.
Ora-GUARD® is an effective dental grind guard that helps to relieve the major symptoms of bruxism. Its revolutionary design combines a soft, medical grade fit material to cushion the jaws during clenching, combined with a patented hard surface wedge design that protects teeth from the damaging effects of clenching and grinding. The bite plate wedge is specially constructed to slide the lower jaw down and forward, releasing tension on the TMJ muscle, while preventing tooth damage. Ora-GUARD® has been popular with customers since its launch and is available at select national retail locations, as well as Amazon.com, CVS.com, Target.com. Walmart.com and Ora-GUARD.com.
Ora GUARD® dental grind guard was developed by Bite Tech Inc., an innovation-driven oral health products company that manufactures and sells oral products to the dental channel and athletic mouth guards to sporting goods and mass retailers.
Bite Tech Inc. holds more than 45 patents and pending patents for its innovative, proprietary designs and technologies. Bruxism sufferers look to Bite Tech dental grind guards (Ora-GUARD®) for relief from teeth grinding and jaw pain while athletes in virtually all sports rely on athletic mouth guards manufactured by Bite Tech for protection and performance improvement on and off the field.

Leading Mouth Guard Product Provides Welcome Relief for Teeth Grinding Sufferers
New dental grind guard product relieves multi-symptoms & effects of teeth grinding with comfortable design that provides effective relief from Bruxism.
Published July 28th, 2017
Norwalk, CT -- Ora-GUARD®, the innovative new dental grind guard from Bite Tech Inc. effectively relieves the painful symptoms and effects of excessive teeth grinding, and provides a comfortable and ideal solution to Bruxism.
Bruxism is a very common condition that causes an estimated 60 million adults and children in the United States alone to grind their teeth and clench their jaw. People with bruxism experience painful and lingering symptoms such as rhythmic contractions of the muscles of the jaw, tight and/or painful jaw muscles, occasional swelling of the lower jaw, TMJ headaches, migraines, and general facial pain. People are often unaware that they are grinding until signs of tooth wear are noticed by their dentist who may diagnose bruxism as the cause.
It is a painful problem for which there is no medication to treat. The protocol recommended is the use of a dental grind guard to prevent clenching and protect the teeth from wear and damage.
Bite Tech Inc. has designed an innovative new mouth guard, Ora-GUARD®, that has taken the marketplace by storm. This ground-breaking new product is designed to relieve the primary and secondary symptoms of teeth grinding while at the same time focusing on relaxing the jaw muscles.
The success of this product is due to its unique 'Bite Plate Wedge' design that causes the lower jaw to slide naturally down and forward, thereby relaxing the muscles of the jaw and avoiding tension. Ora-GUARD® is made from a medical-grade material which provides a soft cushioning effect, while a patented harder surface protects the teeth from damage. Most dental guards rely entirely on soft materials which don't allow the jaws to move naturally and don't protect the teeth effectively, and only address tooth surface grinding. Ora-GUARD® provides consumers with a healthy balance between sturdiness and comfort to address the primary and secondary symptoms of teeth grinding.
Bite Tech Inc. has successfully expanded their reach across the country with their exceptional solution for people who suffer from the debilitating symptoms of teeth grinding. There has been an increased demand for Ora-GUARD® and the company has shown steady growth so far in 2017.

Norwalk company helps tooth-grinders
Published 6:18 pm, Monday, June 26, 2017
NORWALK — Last week, a 92-year-old patient of Dr. Paul Keating’s came in with a problem she’d never had before.
Her jaw hurt and her teeth were cracking.
Keating, a dentist in Wilton, said it’s a problem he sees in patients at least once or twice a day, many of whom have never had an issue in the past. It’s known as bruxism — or more commonly, teeth grinding — and Keating said it’s unclear what causes it. But the most commonly blamed source is stress.
“It’s really common,” Keating said. “The ADA says between 30-40 million Americans suffer from Bruxism, some says it’s as many as 60 million. I see it in my practice at least once or twice a day. We see it in children, adults, everyone. It’s pretty easy to diagnose, but it’s much more difficult to figure out the cause. Stress gets implicated but it’s pretty hard to say why people do it. Nobody knows for sure.”
Regardless of the cause, a Norwalk-based oral health products company is attempting to revolutionize the treatment for Bruxism, which currently consists of mouth guards and antianxiety medication. Bite Tech, overseen by CEO Jeff Padovan, has been a leading designer of mouth guards for athletes. With this experience in mind, Padovan said the company set out to use the same ideas and technology in mouth guards meant to protect the teeth and jaws from Bruxism.
