Cheeky is an inexpensive way to help reduce the discomfort associated with nocturnal teeth grinding. However, Cheeky night guards are not a substitute for a visit to your dentist. If you have any loose fillings or loose teeth, persistent jaw pain, or have been diagnosed by your dentist with temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) be sure to consult your dentist before using Cheeky. If you notice any changes to your bite or occlusion after using Cheeky, discontinue use and consult your dental professional. Do not use Cheeky as a sports mouthguard. Cheeky should not be used by young children or any adult where there is a risk of aspirating the appliance. Cheeky is not intended for users with braces or dentures. If pain persists even after using Cheeky be sure to have a discussion with your dentist at your next visit.
