Mine is pink and sparkly and a complete game changer!

Last night, we got back from our conference pretty late. I was tired, anticipating work today, and took some short cuts in my bedtime routine. 🛌 Holy smokes – am I *ever* regretting that today! 😫

I thought I would take a moment this morning and talk about one of the *first* gifts my dear fiancé William got me. It was a sparkly, pink, and completely practical… night guard. Yup, you read that correctly! He made it for me more than three years ago, and (last night aside), it’s something I wear *everyday.*

Here’s the thing. We all know life can be stressful these days. 😳 When I had my night guard made, I was balancing full-time school and work. My schedule was often like a Tetris game on steroids.

I didn’t know it three years ago… but I have a tendency to clench and grind my teeth at night. For me, this meant tooth sensitivity (since my teeth were getting pretty “ground down” and flat). Ice cream 🍦 was becoming a problem! It also meant occasional jaw pain.

But that’s just the start. In addition to sensitivity, clenching and grinding may cause your teeth to crack or lead to jaw joint problems or headaches. Yikes!

While my night guard isn’t going to get me back the ground down parts of my teeth, it HAS prevented the issue from getting worse. My teeth sensitivity issues have lessened and I no longer wake up with jaw pain. My night guard is easy and comfy to wear, and it’s become a regular part of my bedtime routine.

This brings me back to today’s friendly PSA. If you are clenching and grinding your teeth at night or experiencing tooth sensitivity, a custom-made night guard might be EXACTLY what you need too. ‼️

Mine is pink and sparkly. 💎 But Dr. William Chin can make yours according to your style preferences and (more importantly) oral health needs. 😊
