I would think a place like London Drugs or something would have them, although a custom one from the dentist would be a lot more comfortable.

if it is a night guard for grinding, i is best to get the molded one form your dentist. Should be covered under extended health if you have it

^^ agreed..

i got a night guard because my dentist had told me that i'm most likely grinding my teeth due to stress with school and exams. apparently this is very common with college/university students.

if you're looking for a night guard it might be best to go see your dentist about it.

I never knew anybody in the past that needed these things, over the last couple of years every other person that goes to the dentist seems to get prescribed a mouth guard. Is the whole world really grinding their teeth at night all of a sudden or could this just be an easy cash grab by dentists?

I wouldn't say night guards are a lot more prevalent then they were before.
people are stressed, which is a very common factor that can cause this and wears down their teeth without even knowing it. Sometimes, it's noticed by their partner as they can hear the teeth grinding noise at night. It's also quite detrimental to the jaw joint...which can cause clicking and pain when everytime you have to open your mouth.

I just don't like the stigma that dentists are out there to rip you off or that lawyers are the scumbags of earth. In the case of a night guard, most of the costs are going to the lab that fabricates them and not the dentist. A dentist's overheads are also very high..not to mention the expense and time they have to commit to their education.

i boxed for a few years, you can buy many sizes of generic mouth guards, you boil them in water, then place them in you mouth till it is fitted then cold water and the gel inside sets, u can buy bottoms, tops, thin, thick might be a cheap alternative? just throwin it out there
