It has been my passion since dental school to design and provide a night guard that is not only highly effective, but also affordable for virtually anyone

SmartGuard Rx Inc. recently announced that its “SmartGuard® Dental Guard” would be available nationwide at more than 6,000 CVS locations around the country. The night guard was designed by TMJ Dentist, Dr. David Spainhower, to help overcome TMJ/TMD, Bruxism, nighttime teeth grinding and clenching, as well as the associated symptoms, which may include inability to sleep, migraines, tooth sensitivity, TMJ headaches, jaw pain, damage to teeth, neck and/or shoulder pain. The dental guard is a one-size-fits-all device, able to be molded to comfortably fit any mouth. Most dental guards cover the back teeth, which can actually lead to increased clenching. The SmartGuard covers only the front teeth, reducing clenching forces of the jaw while you sleep.

Dr. Spainhower, inventor of the SmartGuard® Dental Guard, was one of the over 30 million individuals in the U.S who suffer from TMJ pain, and he understands how finding the right solution to relieve the symptoms of clenching and grinding teeth (Bruxism) can truly be a life-changing experience. “It has been my passion since dental school to design and provide a night guard that is not only highly effective, but also affordable for virtually anyone,” says Dr. Spainhower. “I designed SmartGuard® Night Guard to utilize the same technology that I’ve used in my custom TMJ splints for years, yet it is much less expensive.”

The patented design of the SmartGuard® Dental Guard prevents the back teeth from coming into contact, which can reduce clenching forces of the jaw by up to 60% while you sleep. “Virtually all other over-the-counter night guards that cover the back teeth can encourage MORE clenching,” Dr. Spainhower explains. “That’s why I’m so excited to be able to introduce SmartGuard which utilizes the same technology I use to treat my patients who suffer with TMJ and jaw pain. It is available over-the-counter and can save patients hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.”

The SmartGuard is available in 6,399 CVS Stores, plus over 500 additional stores across the country, as well as online. It can be can be molded at home in under 15 minutes, much like a typical sports mouth guard. This eliminates the need for a lengthy office visit.
