A recent news story reported that a 25-year-old woman ended up in the emergency room with fatigue, shortness of breath, and… she was turning blue. The cause?

While an incredibly rare side effect, the attempt to compensate for tooth pain created unnecessary suffering and a hospital stay for a patient who could have simply seen her dentist for her toothache instead of trying to numb the pain.

A customized night guard is one of the best ways to protect your teeth from each other, and protect your oral health.
