Rx Slim-Comfort Dental Guard
SleepRight Rx Slim-Comfort Dental Guard protects teeth and dental work from teeth grinding and clenching. Clenching and grinding teeth has been classified as a neuromuscular disorder. Overactive muscles can cause chipping, fractures, excessive wear and loosening of the teeth. Some studies report that chronic jaw clenching and teeth grinding may be related to head and neck muscle tension and pain in the jaw joints. The SleepRight’s articulating bitepads, made of a resilient hybrid material, slip comfortably between your teeth and are designed to re-establish your natural freeway space. While the SleepRight protects teeth from clenching and grinding, we emphasize and strongly encourage our customers to concentrate on, “lips together, teeth apart” to initiate the muscle relaxation learning process. When directed by the brain, muscles at ease will allow the teeth to rest on the bite pads. Do not bite down, although the natural urge to do so will test your mental approach to learning “lips together, teeth apart”.
Detailed pictures are included with easy to follow care and fitting instructions. With SleepRight’s patented adjustable technology, you have four bite pad positions, making it easy to customize the size to fit most people. The thermal sensitive strap, which is positioned between your lower lip and teeth, will adapt to your gums when heated under warm water. Do not boil the SleepRight dental guard.
The SleepRight dental guard utilizes natural tissue retention between your lips, cheek, and tongue to be held in place.There are no clasps that attach to the teeth and you do not use the teeth to hold the appliance in place. While the bite pads are made of a tough and resilient material, the heat sensitive memory strap is smooth, soft, and flexible. This enhances the adaptation to each individual’s anatomy.
The SleepRight No-Boil dental guard was designed by a specialist in dentistry and has been used by thousands of doctors worldwide. The SleepRight’s state-of-the-art technology is designed specifically to protect teeth from bruxism, commonly referred to as clenching and grinding the teeth. Studies has reported that chronic jaw clenching and grinding has been associated with head, neck, shoulder, and back tension. Can also be worn for performance enhancement during non-contact sporting activities where the natural tendency to clench and grind the teeth may occur, such as: golf, weightlifting, tennis, cycling, bowling, archery, skeet shooting, etc.

How it Works
Night Guard for Teeth
Typical dental guards require boiling water or microwaving and biting into hot plastic for fitting. SleepRight does not.
With SleepRight’s patented self-adjust dental night guard technology, you have two bite pads that comfortably fit between your upper and lower molars to re-establish your natural freeway space.
The bite pads have four positions, making it easy to customize the fit for all sizes. They adjust forward for a smaller fit and backward for a larger fit, as well as swivel to match the angle of all bites.
SleepRight exclusively features a flexible, heat sensitive band that is positioned between your lower lip, teeth, and gums, and uses your body’s temperature to quickly adapt to each individual’s anatomy.
The SleepRight Dental Guard utilizes natural tissue retention between your lips, cheek, and tongue to be held in place. There are no clasps that attach to your teeth and you do not use your teeth to hold the appliance in place.

To gain the most success with using the SleepRight dental guard, please read and follow our Self-Help Philosophy.
Will the SleepRight dental guard help my tongue thrusting habit?
The SleepRight dental guard will not directly help with your tongue thrusting habit, but it could aid in relieving your problem in conjunction with other therapies. We recommend that you consult your dentist or orthodontist on this issue.
Will the SleepRight dental guard help the popping sounds in my jaw?
There are many different kinds of sounds that come from the jaw. If your jaw popping or clicking is at an early stage, using the SleepRight dental guard will help heal your jaw joint and the sounds will go away. However, if your jaw is locking, it may mean that your jaw is internally damaged and a dental guard will not be able to help your muscles heal. However, the SleepRight dental guard can help protect your teeth and joints from further damage as you learn to train yourself not to grind or clench.
Will the SleepRight dental guard help my sleep apnea?
While the SleepRight dental guard was designed to protect teeth from clenching and grinding, those that grind are more likely to suffer from snoring and sleep apnea as well. Although there are special appliances that exist to pull the jaw forward, we have had a number of customers say that the SleepRight dental guard has helped them with their sleep apnea. In addition to our dental guard, Splintek has also developed an orthopedic memory foam pillow called the SleepRight® Side Sleeping Pillow that works in conjunction with our dental guard. The pillow is designed to increase airflow and help you breathe better while sleeping at night, to help reduce snoring and sleep apnea.
Why does my jaw hurt more than before using your dental guard?
It is normal to experience jaw fatigue and soreness initially. It comes from your natural tendency to bite down and will not go away immediately. The bite pads on our dental guards are designed to re-establish the natural space between your upper and lower jaw. This means that they will stretch your jaw muscles, which will cause some soreness. However, with continued use, your jaw muscles will relax and the pain will go away.
Why does my jaw feel out of alignment after I take out the dental guard?
This feeling will be normal for any dental guard you use. It is regarded in the medical field as a ‘soft tissue change’ and is only temporary. Your bite should return to normal within 2-3 hours of removing the dental guard. If you have any concerns, please refer to your dentist for advice.
How long does the SleepRight dental guard last?
The SleepRight dental guard could last forever without the pressure and force exerted by a human jaw. However, depending on the rate that you clench or grind, we can’t really determine how long our dental guards will last for you. But all our dental guards come with a durability warranty in case you grind through yours quickly.
How long do I need to wear the SleepRight dental guard?
There is no set length of time that you should wear our dental guard. The average time is different for everyone, and it just depends on your learning curve and how fast you can make the transition. We have many customers who were successful in controlling their teeth grinding and clenching in just a few weeks while others went through a few dental guards before they were able to stop the habit. We recommend that you put the SleepRight dental guard in 30-60 minutes before bed to help train your brain to stop grinding and clenching. The more often you do this, the faster your problem will be solved.
Can I wear the SleepRight dental guard all day?
Yes, but we suggest that you adhere to the recommendations printed in our instructional guide. We recommend that you not wear your dental guard for more than 12 hours in a 24 hour period because we don’t want you to become dependent on the dental guard and forget the ultimate goal of stopping the bad habit. We also want you to have a break from the dental guard to give you the time to evaluate your progress. Our dental guard is a step in curing your teeth clenching and grinding, but it isn’t meant to be the solution.
Will the SleepRight work on young children?
The SleepRight dental guard is not recommended for children under 18 years of age. Because children are not as adept at behavior modification as adults, we don’t want them to rely on our dental guards as a solution to their teeth grinding. Our ultimate goal is for our customers to stop their habit, and our dental guards are only a step in the right direction. If you are worried about your child’s teeth grinding, we recommend that you seek advice from your dentist.
How does the SleepRight dental guard differ from other guards on the market?
The SleepRight dental guard is a dental appliance similar to many other teeth grinding guards made in a dental office, without the high cost. Our product is user friendly because it is less bulky, easier to breathe and talk with, and you can even drink with it. Our dental guard was developed and designed by a dentistry specialist after carefully studying hundreds of patients, and it has been modified and improved over time to include state of the art adjustment technology. Our unique design is the only product available on the market that offers you the option of multiple adjustments without cutting, boiling or messy mixes to customize the appliance. In addition to our product, we also include a Self-Help Philosophy that is designed to help stop your teeth grinding habits. Our guide is a clinically proven way to help you learn to control and stop these habits.
How do I know which SleepRight dental guard is best for me?
Splintek currently offers four SleepRight dental guard models, each with its own unique features that address various issues. The Slim-Comfort® has the least amount of material out of our four night mouth guard models. It is recommended for adults with small mouths, sensitive gums, or those that are sensitive to things in their mouths. It is also ideal for daytime wear due to its low profile design. The Secure-Comfort® is similar to the Slim-Comfort, except it features stability wings on both sides to grip the gums and help the dental guard stay in place. We generally recommend this model to our customers to address their clenching problems. The Dura-Comfort®is our most advanced dental guard design, recommended for the aggressive grinders. The bite pads are more durable because they are engineered using a denser material and hold up better against grinding. The soft, heat-sensitive band is designed with a grooved strap that is wider than our other models. This helps the band stay in place and reduce pressure points that could be irritated by rubbing. The stability wings are more flexible so that they move with your mouth for increased comfort. The Select is our most affordable dental guard option. It features 5 bite pad positions, and minimal material offers a non-bulky fit. Each SleepRight dental guard model comes with a replacement warranty. We will gladly exchange one for another within its warranty time period.
What is the SleepRight dental guard made of?
The SleepRight dental guard does not contain BPA, silicone, acrylic, gluten, or any harmful toxins, and will not leach any chemicals into your mouth. It is manufactured in an FDA inspected facility and is not made with natural rubber latex.
How do I clean the SleepRight dental guard?
To clean your SleepRight dental guard, we recommend rinsing it with cool water or mouthwash. Then dry it thoroughly to prevent bacterial growth, and store in the provided case. Be careful not to store the dental guard around pets, because they have a tendency of chewing up the dental guard.
How does the SleepRight dental guard work?
The SleepRight dental guard provides a cushion between your teeth that will protect them from the teeth grinding action exerted by the jaw muscles. This muscle activity, known as teeth grinding and clenching, can cause chipping, fractures, and loosening of the teeth. The SleepRight dental guard spaces your teeth apart to decompress the jaw joints and helps them relax. The SleepRight dental guard uses a natural process called tissue retention to stay in between your teeth. The bite pads rest on the back molars and are kept in place by your upper and lower jaw. The soft, heat-sensitive band lies between the bottom of your lower teeth and gums. There are no clasps or sharp corners that fasten to the teeth so there is no worry of pain.
