A night guard is dentally recommended for people suffering from bruxism (unconscious abnormal teeth grinding habit).
Mouth guards are not designed to help stop or cure the teeth grinding habit, but to protect the teeth from wearing out. Wearing the TMJ night guards helps to prevent jaw pains and headaches caused by teeth grinding.

How Does J&S Dental Lab Night Guard Work?
When you purchase the J&S Dental Night Guard through their website or Amazon, you will be sent a teeth impression kit and not the actual night guard. Follow the instruction guide to make your teeth impression. After this, send the impression to the lab for your customized night guard to be made.
There is nothing to be anxious about making the teeth impression. The process is simple and only takes about five minutes. Moreover, the instructions in the impression kit are easy to understand.
Using the J&S Dental Impression Kit
The dental impression kit from J&S Dental Lab contains:
- A tray
- Special impression material (putty/clay)
- A bubble envelope and instruction details
The instructions will guide you on how to place the impression material in the tray, place the tray in your mouth, and how to bite down correctly to make your impression. From there, you will have to wait for the impression material to harden before packing it in the envelope and sending it back to the lab for processing.
Watch the JS Dental Lab video for an overview of the molding procedure.
After the lab receives your impression, your customized night guard will be sent to you in about 10 days.
