Product Description

This ultra thin custom guard is ideal for day time teeth grinding and or clenching. It is made from a thin layer of hard acrylic (approximately 1mm thick). 

It is thin, making it comfortable to wear and not very noticeable.  You can also speak comfortably while wearing this ultra thin day time mouth guard. It's generally not durable enough to hold up against night time grinding.

The ultra thin guard may be used for approximately 6 months to 2 years, depending on the degree of teeth grinding.

Your purchase includes:

    • An impression kit with instructions to take your teeth impression: we take both upper & lower teeth impressions to guarantee a perfect fit for your night guard
    • All inclusive shipping and handling 
    • One custom made Pro Teeth Ultra Thin Guard for day time teeth grinding
    • A plastic case for your night guard


Please note: If you're suffering from TMJ or TMJ symptoms, we do NOT recommend ordering a night guard online.  Please consult your dentist directly.  For more information, see this article about bruxism vs TMJ.

Why Wear an Ultra-Thin Daytime Mouth Guard?

Different types of custom teeth guards are designed to help with different types of bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching). Just as a softer night guard is especially designed to help with teeth clenching at night, if you have problems grinding your teeth during the day, a day guard is the ideal protection against daytime teeth grinding and clenching.

Bruxism doesn’t occur only during the night. In fact, over 10 percent of all night grinders suffer from daytime grinding as well. Daytime bruxism often goes unnoticed and can lead to pain, damaged teeth, or costly dental restorations.

According to a paper recently published in the Journal of the American Dental Association (June 2017 Volume 148, Issue 6, Pages 387–391) on the subject of awake bruxism, it was found that “Literature and clinical experience indicate a lack of patient awareness and, thus, underreporting of awake bruxism. As a result, myriad dental consequences can occur from bruxism.”

The Consequences of Daytime Bruxism

Daytime bruxism may cause:

  • Tooth structure damage
  • Wear facets
  • Fractured teeth and restorations
  • Abfraction lesions
  • Craze lines
  • Tooth loss
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Indentations
  • Widening of the periodontal ligament
  • Tooth mobility
  • Tooth recession

As you can see, this is a serious condition that can lead to harmful consequences to your dental health. Although the causes behind teeth grinding and clenching are still not known, the leading assumption is that stress and anxiety are correlated with daytime bruxism. While it’s difficult to treat the root cause of the problem, obtaining a custom bite guard for daytime use is one of the easiest methods to prevent teeth damage. Day guards are thin, comfortable, and easy to wear, which makes them a practical solution for daytime teeth grinding and clenching.

Difference Between Daytime Bruxism and Nighttime Bruxism

According to Mauro Farella, a University of Otago professor of orthodontics, who has a long-standing research interest in bruxism:

“Most people are more concerned with sleep bruxism. It’s considered scarier and more harmful, and most dentists would say it is worse. However, I believe the opposite – that daytime bruxism can be more harmful.”

According to the professor, most people clench their teeth during the night for approximately 10 minutes, and in hard, short outbursts. However, daytime clenching is mostly lighter than nighttime clenching, but it can last for hours and thus cause more damage to the teeth.

However, the silver lining is that you don’t need a thick mouth guard for daytime bruxism. Since daytime grinding is often light, you can purchase an ultra thin mouth guard that is barely noticeable. The day guard is barely visible and it will pose minimal or no effect on your speech and communication with people during the day. Even though you may not be aware of your teeth grinding during the day, the ultra thin day guard will be protecting your teeth.

How to Choose the Best Daytime Mouth Guard

An effective mouth guard acts as a barrier between the teeth and absorbs the grinding and clenching forces. If you want to purchase the best daytime mouth guard, you should pay attention to the following factors:

  • The protection it can offer, which comes from the material used when making the mouth guard
  • Does it fit properly and comfortably in your mouth?
  • The price

Without any doubt, the a custom dental mouth guard is going to offer the best protection and comfort. It’s made specifically to fit you, and when you order a custom mouth guard, the quality you’re getting is far higher than anything you can buy over the counter.

This leads us to question on mouth guard prices.

When you purchase a custom mouth guard from your dentist, you can expect to pay anywhere from $400 to $800. However, if you don’t want to spend a small fortune on a mouth guard, you can buy one with the same high quality, but directly from the source. Pro Teeth Guard has been working with dentists in the California area for years, and we use the same professional materials and process to create the custom dental mouth guards for our online customers. The only difference between the dentist’s office and us is that you’ll have to make the impressions yourself.

Customer Testimonials

  • It was a pleasure working with you! Proteethguard.com far exceeded my expectations. Your directions were very clear but I still managed to mess up on my first try.

  • I previously had a night guard that I got through my dentist that cost $400. Then I had some cosmetic dental work done and the guard didn't fit any more. I thought there must be a way to get a dental guard for less than $400, so I did a Google search and found you. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience with Pro Teeth Guard. The process was easy, and the fit was perfect - better, in fact, than the fit on the guard I got from my dentist. I would highly recommend Pro Teeth Guard to anyone who needs a night guard.
