I have had to use a night guard for several years. The first 2 were made by dentist. One was too big and the other I bit right through, very costly. Also my teeth wore badly even though I used them faithfully. I purchased 2 Doctor's night guard in the past. The newer ones are different,very hard to fit and too big for my mouth.I also have tried Sleep Right. Tried 2 sizes couldn't wear either one too bulky for small mouths.
Plackers are the best I have ever used. Small enough for the smallest mouths.Keeps teeth from touching but still can close my mouth. So comfortable you can hardly tell it is in your mouth.

I bought a box of these to keep in my suitcase because I frequently forget my real night guard when I travel. Having just worn the plackers version for 3 nights in a row, I think it kept me from damaging the surface of my teeth, but my jaw and molars are killing me- maybe the soft material made me grind more than usual. So it's probably better than nothing in a pinch, especially if you've got porcelain crowns to worry about, but no substitute for a permanent night guard.

    Been hesitating to replace my $800 night guard for years now because I kept forgetting to use it.

    Saw this, bought two boxes, and am still working on the very first placker after at least a week. Man, I can afford to wear these for a lifetime! It does the same thing as the dentist-made one (though it's not as solid and it took a little getting used to).

    I am thrilled to have found this.

    I've been using these for about six months with no problem until last night. I had a really bad nightmare, and when I woke up,the middle bit that goes along the gum line was sliding down my throat. Totally gross. I have lost my confidence in this product. I really don't want to take the chance of eating plastic every night!

            Unless you have a very unusual fit, this is the best value and I've tried everything from custom lab made to other alternates and this is my favorite by far. It's actually quite durable, for a disposable, so you may get extra uses before discarding. Thanks for a great product.

              Because the guard doesn't cover all my teeth there is a lot of pressure on the teeth it does cover. I would wake up with a couple of teeth hurting. I've had better luck with a the guards that you boil. They cover all my teeth.

                  I use this product every night and am very pleased! I don't usually write reviews for products, but this is such a great product - I had to do so.
                  I think buying a custom made guard from the dentist is a waste of money! Not only is it expensive, but I don't think wearing a mouth guard for that long is a good idea, before purchasing a new one, as bacteria can grow overtime, even with good daily cleaning.
                  You can use these for much longer than just a few nights - as a matter of fact, I've used the same one for a month and then opened a new one. I just drop in a cup with listerine to clean daily and they hold up great.

                      I have cracked several teeth over the years due to the fact I clench my jaws while sleeping. I had a dentist-made "molded" night guard that I hated. It was snug and uncomfortable, and I would remove it during the night while I was asleep, so I woke up with a sore jaw and one molar in particular that would just ache. I needed something that was more comfortable to wear at night, and this product is IT!! I can still speak with it in my mouth, and while it still took a night or two to get used to it, the pain I used to feel is GONE. Also, I can use one guard for a week, easily, before replacing it. I love the fact that they're easy to pack if I'm going out of town, easy to rinse/clean, etc. I am SO very glad I found this product.

                        when the dentist suggested a $400 custom bite guard I just knew there had to be a cheaper option. I grind my teeth at night and my jaws get very tight. But I never had headaches or any other pain so the $400 was really not an option. I got these because they are disposibal however you can use it for quite a while.

                            Plackers are comfortable (unlike other guards) and no adjusting needed. The plastic guard lays across your gums and only extends under your back teeth. It stays put naturally. Doesn't make your mouth look weird. Individually wrapped so travels easily. Can replace daily or every few days if your teeth have not damaged it. Great design.

                            The idea of having a "fresh" night guard every few nights was really appealing but this just did not work for me. It didn't fit very well in my mouth (top or bottom) and I could not get used to the "lip" of the guard protruding out between my lip gums. I would wake up several times at night because it was so uncomfortable (and be very cranky the next day). I've since started using the SleepRight slim fit guard and it seems to be better (not perfect but I like the adjustable fit and least I am not waking up so much).
