Dentek Comfort Fit Review
Welcome to this Dentek Comfort Fit Review web
I hope you get the information you need to make as informed a decision as you can as to what is the best dental
mouth guard for you.
Okay, enough preamble. Let's discuss the Dentek Comfort Fit Night Guard.
There are some nice pluses about this dental mouth guard product. Overall, it's okay. This can be a really small and lightweight mouth guard. It
also seems to be professionally made with dental professional guidance and input going into its construction.
Unlike other guards, it has been developed mainly to stop you from grinding the teeth (bruxism), it appears. That is not a
negative necessarily, but the best mouthguards are usually multi-faceted in that they can work for bruxism issues, TMJ or TMD issues
(Temporomandibular joint disorder), and for TMJ-like symptoms. Thus, in my view, that is a negative.
The Dentek Comfort Fit night guard product will safeguard your teeth nicely. That said, however, literally
any guard made with even a modicum of care will safeguard the teeth if it is properly fitted in the mouth area. This sounds like a foregone
conclusion but it isn't.
Other Product Elements
Continuing, this mouth guard is scored around low with my recommendation list since it is sufficiently small enough to literally swallow, and
it's small enough that it may flop around the mouth a little bit. That is highly undesirable.
But, that said, many people may like this particular mouth guard as it does potentially have the ability to
significantly lessen TMJ pain and discomfort because of the modification in proprioception from the muscles and how they contract.
Still, the core of my recommendation or non-recommendation is the ability of it to resolve or at
least mitigage TMJ problems and pain. It might work well with bruxism patients (bruxism is the unconscious grinding of the teeth during sleep)
but if you have a larger mouth, it probably won't work. I'm of average size and it was too small for me.
If you do end up buying this mouth or night guard, I strongly recommend that you push the biting tabs all
the way forward to the front of the mouth so as to minimize the discomfort or uncomfortableness of it, which should lead to the prevention of
even more discomfort or pain to TMJ or TMD sufferers.
