I have lost my custom made mouth guard whilst camping and whilst I'm waiting to get an appointment and have another one made, can anyone recommend the sort they sell online?

You could get a boil and bite one from OPRO.

There's nothing worse- I had to go and buy a kids one from Sports Direct on the day after Boxing Day when I forgot to bring it to my in-laws [facepalm]

I used to get these from amazon before I spurlged and got one from the dentist. They lasted about six weeks before I'd grind through them.

Any advice on how to get used to wearing a mouth guard? I have one from the dentist that I got free when my dental treatment was covered due to pregnancy but I can’t get used to wearing it so it’s sat by my bed doing nothing!

@WhenZogateSuperworm hi I hate mine but do have to wear it I found it very uncomfortable and it was painful to start with. What I did was wear it for short periods to start with and increased the time each week so for the first week I'd wear it for a couple of hours and then the second week for four hours until I could tolerate it through the night. I can wear it all night now but do find I have a very dry mouth in the morning. Good luck!

The sports ones look too big, I'll try the Amazon one...thankyou.
Even a couple of nights without one and I can feel my jaw aching, dh said he can hear me grinding and clicking and I am terrified I'm going to crack a tooth (a tooth snapped in half when I was pregnant).
Zogate it took a little while of wearing it in the evening for it to feel comfortable enough to sleep with it...obviously you look like a goddess with it in, but worth it in the end! I now feel really uncomfortable without it!
Bloody bruxism.
