Why Ora-GUARD® over other Dental Grind Guards? Ora-GUARD® is a new take on night-time teeth protection.
Most other products rely on “soft surface barriers” to keep teeth from grinding together at night. The problem is that this soft material doesn’t allow your teeth and jaws to move naturally, meaning you still end up with a sore TMJ muscle in the morning. Worse yet, the soft material breaks down quickly under the intense pressure of heavy teeth grinding, meaning the life of these devices can be measured in weeks.
Ora-GUARD® uses soft, medical grade material for fitting and to provide a cushion during clenching, but is built around a patented hard surface design that allows your teeth and jaws to slide naturally, protecting your teeth from the damaging effects of grinding and avoiding the “tension pain” in the TMJ muscle.
Other Dental Grind Guards can't compare.
It fits comfortably and stays in place.
The new Ora-GUARD® Dental Grind Guard is also small enough to fit comfortably in your mouth. The smaller size allows you to easily talk and breathe while wearing the Ora-GUARD® day or night.
How Does Ora-GUARD® Work?
Hard and Soft Surfaces and a Wedge Design
While most current dental grind guards on the market are “soft surface barriers”, Ora-GUARD® uses a combination of hard and soft surfaces and a patented wedge design to reduce the damage of heavy teeth grinding and relax the TMJ muscle.
Teeth Grinding Without Protection
When a person suffering from Bruxism grinds his or her teeth at night, it causes a number of problems to occur. The teeth grinding against one another become worn and develop micro-fractures. The clenching muscles generate tension that can result in headaches and a sore neck and shoulders. And the powerful pressure applied compresses the nerves in the area and leads to pain in the TMJ muscle.
Teeth Grinding With Ora-GUARD® Protection
With Ora-GUARD®, the patented “Bite Plate Wedge Design” slides the lower jaw down and forward. This relaxes the jaw muscles, relieving head and neck pain, sleep disruption and tooth damage. It also opens the airway, making it easier to breathe and reducing the complications of snoring.
AN MRI VIEW OF Ora-GUARD®
Here's an MRI view comparing the difference with and without Ora-GUARD®
The patented bite wedge shifts the condyle (the rounded end of the lower jaw) forward.
If you compare the images below, the difference is clear — in the image on the right (with the Ora-GUARD® in place) the lower jaw is shifted slightly forward, and the airway is an extra 2MM larger.
That “Down and Forward” Motion Opens the Airway!
The image below shows two more views of the airway from the MRI. The images at the top are “with” the Ora-GUARD® in place, and the bottom images are “without” Ora-GUARD®.
Extra Millimeters Make A Huge Difference, and that's why our customers find the relief they are looking for while simultaneously protecting their teeth.
Ora-GUARD® works better; it is trusted by dentists to improve occlusal misalignment, relieving symptoms of teeth grinding, headaches, TMJ pain, and neck and shoulder pain.
