Plackers(R), makers of the first disposable dental flosser, expands its line of convenient home dental care products with the Grind-No-More(R) Night Protector, the first disposable, ready-to-use night protector on the market that combats bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding.
An estimated 60 million adults currently grind their teeth and dental expert Dr. Nancy Rosen said on a recent Good Morning America appearance that bruxism cases are significantly increasing due to stress and anxiety from the down economy. Teeth grinding and clenching can create up to 250 pounds of pressure on teeth, causing enormous amounts of irreversible damage, including worn enamel and loss of tooth shape.
Night protectors like Grind-No-More are a proven way to help treat bruxism and protect teeth. While guards from a dentist office can cost hundreds of dollars and require continuous cleaning, Grind-No-More offers a hygienic, disposable alternative that comes ready to use without boiling, molding or messy cleaning. Each protector can be used for up to three nights.
