About OPRO Nightguard

What is Bruxism? (teeth grinding)

Bruxism describes a range of related behaviours including teeth grinding, gnashing and clenching of the jaw. It is usually a subconscious action performed whilst someone is asleep. The exact cause of bruxism is not certain but possible causes include

1. Stress
2. An overbite
3. Malfunction of the nervous system

What are the effects of Bruxism?

Teeth grinding and clenching can permanently damage your teeth as the enamel is worn away. It can also lead to other problems such as headaches, sore facial muscles, damage to the inside of the cheek and disorder of the TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint). In more severe cases teeth grinding can even loosen teeth.

How can I stop grinding my teeth?

Many treatments have been proposed to reduce or stop teeth grinding but by far the best solution is the wearing of a nightguard. Wearing a Nightguard from OPRO can prevent continued damage to your teeth.

Why buy a Nightguard from OPRO?

Nightguards from OPRO are custom made to fit your mouth and therefore prevent night time teeth grinding. As a result of being a perfect fit, they’re comfortable and allow you to breathe properly while you are asleep. OPRO Nightguards are a registered medical device. Each Nightguard kit contains:

1. Full written instructions
2. Two tubs of our special impression putty
3. An easy to mould impression tray
4. Addressed envelope for the return of your impression
5. Set of written instructions

Depending upon your preference we are able to make a Nightguard for either your upper or lower teeth. This impression system can be used for either your upper or lower teeth as the same instructions are applicable to both.

Once we have received your completed impression, it will be examined by our experienced technicians prior to the start of the manufacturing process. We will aim to return your completed Nightguard to you within 5 working days but the process may take longer in busier periods.

Your completed Nightguard will then be returned to you in an Anti-microbial case.
