Night Guard – Brief Article
NEW YORK — Dental Concepts is looking to take oral care into the OTC aisles with a new offering aimed at treating a condition suffered by as much as 50 percent of the U.S. population. bruxism, or nocturnal teeth grinding, is a serious problem that potentially can damage teeth, gums and jaws, normally requiring the use of a custom-made dental mouth guard that can cost the patient as much as $750 out-of-pocket. The Doctor’s Night Guard offers a custom-fit for a suggested retail price of $24.99. Much like a sports mouthpiece, but not nearly as bulky, Night Guard is fitted by inserting into boiling water until it softens, then quickly into cold water and into the mouth of the user. The Night Guard comes in two sizes.
