More than 80% of the population is estimated to experience bruxism at some point during their lives. This means that the vast majority of patients you see in practice will likely exhibit some signs of grinding or clenching on their teeth, gums and/or jaw. Being able to help patients prevent the worsening of symptoms, to protect their existing teeth and enable them to avoid other painful consequences of bruxism is important for every general dental practitioner (GDP).

Introducing SOVA

The SOVA® family of night guards has been designed specifically for modern patients and professionals. It utilises Diffusix™ Technology in order to evenly distribute the biting forces, absorbing and diffusing the pressure to protect the teeth from damage. It has been crafted to be the most durable and comfortable night guard on the market, making use of innovative technologies and simple workflows to benefit both the patient and professional team.

Better by design

This innovative night guard is the result of merging SOVA’s scientifically engineered crumple zones with a patented triangular pattern in a pre-formed shape to simplify the custom-moulding experience. As such, no impressions are needed to deliver custom-designed devices, creating an easy and highly efficient professional workflow without compromising on the quality of the solution. In fact, the Flat2Fit™ technology means that the custom-fit night guards can be produced in minutes. Simply immerse the flat, horseshoe-shaped material in 76ºC water until it becomes pliable and then mould it against the patient’s teeth until it hardens. It can even be remoulded up to 20 times for the perfect fit. 

The SOVA night guards allow for the natural flow of air and saliva to promote patient comfort and enable normal talking, breathing and drinking while being worn. The device is made from a tough polymer that is free of BPA, latex, phthalate and PVC for a biocompatible solution that patients will appreciate. It features a flat occlusal surface and perforated labial and lingual flanges to minimise movement, while the minimal 1.6mm thickness maximises patient comfort. High tensile strength means that the solution is made to last.

Why choose SOVA?

The unique technology behind the SOVA night guard makes it a super-fast, effective and affordable solution for a wide range of patients. Whether patients are presenting with wear, discussing their bruxism for the first time or returning to replace a lost or broken night guard, SOVA offers a viable option for most people. It is even cost-effective enough that patients may wish to order a spare night guard for when travelling, on holiday or to have just in case. The immediate nature of the device means that patients can leave the appointment with a protective device they can trust to keep the symptoms of bruxism at bay. It’s a bonus that the SOVA night guard is also easy to fit, with a pre-formed design that optimises workflow efficiency too. Plus, it can be used by patients with orthodontic devices or implants,

You don’t just have to take our word for it either – SOVA night guard is an award-winning solution, having been recognised by the Dental Advisor as Best Therapeutic Device for the 2016, 2017 and 2018 top product awards.

For added peace of mind, the SOVA night guard is distributed by Oraldent – a leading oral health product provider in the UK. The company has been leading the way with unique solutions based on science to help clinicians support patients with exceptional oral hygiene.
