Stress is damaging our oral health

Grinding. Clenching. Chomping. No more.

We live in anxious times. A recent ADA survey found that more than 70% of dentists are seeing an increase in patients grinding and clenching. More people are cracking teeth, waking up with headaches, and experiencing jaw pain.

But 3D printing with #protectasmile can help you provide a new level of care to your patients, delivering more night guards to those who need them.

Familiar Signs

Every day, patients that could benefit from a night guard walk into our practices and clinics.


The Bruxer

My symptoms

Grinding | Jaw Pain | Sensitive Teeth
The bruxer doesn’t realize it, but they’re grinding, chomping, and scraping away at their enamel while they sleep. A night guard can help protect them from tooth fracture, jaw pain, and more.

The Drowser

My symptoms

Headaches | Poor Sleep | Jaw Pain
The drowser doesn’t know why they’re always so tired, but you see the signs. A night guard can help them sleep more soundly by helping relax their jaw, giving them brighter mornings.

The Investor

I have

Veneers | Implants | Crowns
Investors have spent thousands on aesthetic or restorative operations. A night guard helps them protect the delicate results of those complex procedures.

Traditional Production Methods Are Letting Us Down

Traditional methods for night guard production can take weeks and cost hundreds of dollars. These long lead times and high costs get passed on to patients, making them less likely to accept treatment.
