We had a patient come in a few months ago. She was grinding her teeth in her sleep to the extent that she actually ground through her night guard. We suggested making our new type of night guard – the RiPPLE. She was hesitant at first. But this is what she has to say now!
“I didn’t even know I was grinding my teeth in my sleep. I have worn a night guard for many years. The one I’ve worn recently cracked. I went to Dr. Pastrell and inquired about getting the night guard replaced. He suggested the new type of night guard-the RiPPLE. I had it made up but when I saw it I did not want to wear it. It seemed invasive because there was a top and bottom guard that I was supposed to wear. But Dr. Pastrell explained that it is like that so that my teeth cannot even touch while I am asleep. This does not allow them to engage in the chewing or grinding motion while I am asleep. It took me a couple days to get used to it but now I absolutely love it! It is actually really comfortable-like a pillow for my teeth! And I think I’m sleeping better overall! I would highly recommend this night guard if you struggle with the same issue I did! Thanks, Dr. Pastrell!”
