About Brux

Brux Night Guard was founded by two partners with very different views about nighttime teeth grinding and dental mouth guards. We had worked together for years without ever discussing the subject until it came up one day in a conversation.

For years, I viewed teeth grinding mouth guards as a way for dentists to perform a $600 wallet biopsy on their patients. I mean come on, have you ever actually seen anybody grind their teeth at night while they sleep? This has to be the biggest scam in the world. Why does it cost $600 for a mouth guard from a dentist when you can buy one from a sporting goods store for far less money. I know quite a few people that have been caught in the same scam and I never understood how a dentist would know if patients were grinding at night. Maybe they were grinding during the day and they could stop by recognizing the habit.
I have been grinding my teeth at night for years. I've been to three different dentists and paid for three different mouth guards. Each one helped a little bit, but I had problems with every one and they didn't help in the long run. After spending almost $2000 and still not having something that worked really well, I decided to design my own based on my favorite features.

After several long conversations between the two partners, and over a year of researching Bruxism, we decided to take the best of what we found and create a completely new mouth guard for teeth grinding.

We began by talking to several dentists and dental technicians about Bruxism and the best ways to treat it.

Next, we interviewed friends and family members who have teeth grinding problems. Many of them regularly use mouth guards purchased from a dentist. We found that they all paid approximately $600 for their mouth guards. We also found that most of them thought they found some relief but the mouth guards were too hard or too big, and not as comfortable as they might be if they were designed differently. 

John served as the corporate guinea pig for testing designs because he had already tried several different models. He knew what worked best and what didn't.

After quite a bit of research and design testing, we knew that we had found the best combination of features and design elements to provide a teeth grinding mouth guard that rivals all the others, even the ones created at the dental office. And at a fraction of the cost.

After tweaking the design, we found a manufacturer in the United States who provided more insight into the materials and manufacturing process. The president of the company personally guided us through the process and offered some design advice we hadn't thought about initially.

The road from initial idea to functioning product has taken several years but we feel we have created the best mouth guard on the market for people that suffer from teeth grinding and clenching. We went back to the same people that gave us their thoughts in the beginning and they agree it is a better design than anything they have used in the past.

But don't take our word for it. Every person is different, with unique teeth patterns and reasons for grinding. We ask that you give it a try and see for yourself.

If you've never worn a teeth grinding mouth guard before, but suffer from Bruxism, the Brux Night Guard can save you more than $500 off the price of a mouth guard created by your dentist.

If you're already a dental mouth guard user and are looking for something that is more comfortable and effective than what you currently have, $60 is a small price to pay for relief from Bruxism.

We are always looking for ways to make our product better and welcome your feedback. Let us know what you like, what you don't, and other products you'd like to see in the future.

From all of us at Brux Night Guard, Thanks for stopping by and helping us to make the best teeth grinding mouth guard on the market.
