Composed of a unique elastic acrylic resin material, Impak Nightguards are thinner than a traditional hard/soft guard, but durable enough for the active nocturnal bruxer.
Impak Nightguards become flexible under warm water, making it easier to insert and more comfortable to wear. When the material cools to intraoral temperature it becomes hard enough to protect your patients’ teeth and restorations.
Compared to Hard/Soft Guards:
- Impak Nightguards are Self-Adjusting: Heat it under warm water and the guard will mold to the teeth.
- Impak Nightguards are Less Bulky: Superior wearability and patient comfort compared to traditional hard/soft guards.
- Impak Nightguards have Faster Seating Times: Better fit reduces seating time and dimensional stability means fewer, if any, adjustments.
- Impak Nightguards can be softened in warm water to conform more readily to tooth contours. Immediately prior to insertion, simply immerse the Impak Nightguard in warm tap water for one to two minutes. This simple step will allow final customization for the patient’s optimum comfort.
