A US dentist has invented a new mouth guard that he believes is more effective at cutting down teeth grinding and clenching than the current models – particularly in this time of major economic stress!
Dr Joe Pelerin, based in Lake Orion in Michigan, found that many mouth guards currently on the market are either too cheap, and therefore don’t work effectively, or are too expensive and so out of the reach of most of his ordinary customers.
“Stress is responsible for teeth clenching and grinding,” said Dr Pelerin who has practiced family dentistry for three decades, “and what most people don’t realise is that teeth grinding and clenching not only damages teeth and fillings and leads to receding gums and root canals, but also can be the cause of migraine headaches and pain in the shoulders, neck, back and ears.”
“Far too many individuals suffer needlessly for years from chronic pain when a simple and inexpensive solution is available.”
The solution he has come up with is the GrindGuardN, an FDA-approved device that is different from others on the market. It features a patented Central Power Bar that releases the stimulus for clenching, reducing grinding activity by up to 70%.
“Because it concentrates forces on the upper and lower midline at the same time when a patient clenches, GrindGuardN is the only device ever shown to reduce clenching and grinding without having to visit the dentist,” says Dr. Pelerin.
The GrindGuardN is available online and Dr Pelerin is so confident about his invention that he is even offering a 30-day money back guarantee.
“The cheap $20 to $30 over-the-counter mouth guards available in drug stores actually can increase grinding and clenching,” explains Dr. Pelerin, “and more expensive traditional horseshoe devices provide some relief but are uncomfortable to use and can cost $200 to $500 or more.”
