Frequently Asked Questions
WHO SHOULD USE A SMARTGUARD® NIGHT GUARD?
SmartGuard Night Guard is indicated for ages 18 and older.
HOW MANY HOURS PER DAY SHOULD A PATIENT WEAR SMARTGUARD?
SmartGuard® Night Guard is designed to be worn at night while you sleep, and should not be worn for more than 12 consecutive hours in any 24 hour period.
ARE SMARTGUARD® NIGHTGUARDS FDA CLEARED?
Yes. SmartGuard® Night Guard has both OTC and RX indications that are cleared by the FDA. See Indications for Use page.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY SMARTGUARD® NIGHTGUARD?
All night guards should be replaced over time. The life of your SmartGuard® Night Guard depends on how long and how often you grind your teeth and the force of your teeth grinding. On average, each night guard should last approximately six month or to over a year. As long as you clean the SmartGuard® regularly with denture cleaner, and keep it stored in water when not in use, you should have no problem keeping your SmartGuard for a couple of years.
DO SMARTGUARD® PRODUCTS CONTAIN BPA, or LATEX?
SmartGuard® Night Guard products are BPA free and do not contain latex.
CAN I TALK WITH MY SMARTGUARD® NIGHTGUARD IN MY MOUTH?
SmartGuard® Night Guards are molded to your teeth, allowing them to provide a snug fit. However, because SmartGuard® Night Guard is designed to be worn while you are sleeping, and no more than 12 hours in a 24 hour period, you may have a difficult time speaking with it in your mouth.
HOW DO I STORE MY SMARTGUARD® NIGHT GUARD?
We’ve found that when the SmartGuard® is stored in a storage case the air gets to it and turns it yellow in a matter of weeks. So we recommend that you simply store your night guard in a small cup of water next to your bed. This will keep it fresh and extend the life of the guard.
