My Experience with SleepRight
For as long as I could remember, I have been grinding my teeth. Grinding made my molars chirp, which made me extra sensitive to hot and cold stuff.
Like most of your, I hopped online to find a solution to my grinding condition and thats when I learnt about bruxism. I read so much information that right now, I consider myself an expert of sorts.
I read many reviews and testimonials on teeth grinding products at various forums. One solution kept popping up: SleepRight.
I thought to myself that since many people with a similar condition to mine claimed SleepRight helped them, why not try it. I ordered the Select Comfort on Amazon since it is the cheapest among the four models. I got the SleepRight pack in two days.
When I first wore SleepRight, my jaws got sore. The soreness almost made me quit using it. However, as they days went by (Ill say in a weeks time), the pain became less and less pronounced. All this was about a year ago. Today, I am happy and proud to say that my bruxism is no more.
The main challenge I had was trying to stop using the guard. It was thought at first but I finally managed. What I did is I gradually reduced usage from daily to a few days a week. Eventually, I reduced my usage until I finally stopped completely using it.
Today, I am no longer grinding my teeth. I am living proof that SleepRight is a solution to bruxism.
