ClearClub mouthguards also have hard acrylic on the outside and soft thermoplastic materials on the inside. Our research team at NewMouth determined this might be a dealbreaker for some customers who prefer a single material type (soft or hard).
ClearClub night guards are comfortable for most customers due to the hybrid materials used.
Unlike other brands, ClearClub custom night guards come in a single material configuration: a soft inner thermoplastic layer and a hard outer acrylic shell.
Hard night guards work best for customers with more severe bruxism. People who have sensitive mouths tend to prefer soft night guards.
Timeframes for replacing your ClearClub night guard depend on several factors, including:
Thinner night guards wear down easier and should be replaced more often. Night guards that show signs of aging should be promptly replaced.
To extend your night guard’s longevity, clean it every morning and deep clean it once weekly. Inspect the guard visually to ensure no cracks, holes, or lingering food particles.

Unlike permanent retainers, ClearClub custom night guards can be removed and cost less than most in-office alternatives. We’ve found this helps many suffering from bruxism find a cost-effective way to address their symptoms without breaking the bank.
Night guards are a custom-fit solution that addresses but doesn’t cure bruxism. Bruxism, or the subconscious grinding and clenching of the jaw, can cause headaches, jaw pain, and permanent dental damage.2 Over 20% of adults are estimated to suffer from this condition.1
Most custom night guards are between 1 mm and 3 mm thick. Night guards protect against jaw pain and tooth wear from excessive grinding and clenching. They come in several varieties:
In the past, the only way to obtain a custom night guard was by visiting a dentist, usually with a hefty price tag. Now, companies like ClearClub offer custom-made night guards at a fraction of the cost.
ClearClub offers people a viable and durable product without breaking the bank and sacrificing personal preference. ClearClub’s upper and lower night guards can help relieve the symptoms of bruxism with a pricing structure comparable to Remi night guards and other competitors.
Most people see results within a month of wearing ClearClub’s custom night guard.
Yes, you can wear a ClearClub night guard every night.
ClearClub recommends washing your custom night guard after you remove it.14 Scrub the inside of the night guard with anti-microbial soap, rinse again, and let it air dry.
ClearClub night guards create a few millimeters of space between your teeth when you bite down to alleviate the effects of bruxism. This spacing should not significantly change your bite, and the guard should not cause excessive damage to your gums.
You may experience gum tenderness due to an improper fit. In this case, contact ClearClub’s customer service. Depending on the problem, they may remake your guard for free or issue you a new impression kit.
Knowing which type of night guard you need depends on the intensity of your bruxism. People who grind or clench their jaws significantly often benefit most from hard night guards.
However, soft night guards can provide an accessible introduction to wearing this dental device. If you need to, you can switch to a hard night guard.
