I found this in my local Walmart today, never having seen it before--in fact, the webpage says that it is not available in the store, so it must be a new addition.
I went to buy a new nighttime guard because I got a couple of new caps that won't fit in the old guard. This is perfect for my needs, which involve unconsciously grinding my teeth during the day. This is so small that I can wear it all day without anybody noticing. I popped it in my mouth in the parking lot and have been wearing it for several hours.
The old guard is bulky, so I only wore it at night, when it probably did not help. While writing this, I realized that they wanted me to rinse the new one in warm water to fit it, not sanitize it, so I heated up water in the microwave--not so hot I could not put my finger in it--and softened the guard for 30 seconds, and now it actually fits the way it should.
What I also like is that I can grind to my heart's content. That's good because I tend to chew on just one side and this allows me to even out the pressure a bit on the other side.
I haven't run it past my dentist yet, but I don't tell him everything, such as that I don't floss every day. He is just worried about the grinding, so if it helps that, he will be happy.
