Breakdown of Ratings
Solid plastic construction, putty impression mold instead of messy goop. The impression experience was a bit uncomfortable for me though.
Much cheaper than a regular mouthguard, wish I could give this one six stars out of five!
Ridiculously practical and very user-friendly. The night watchmen don't disturb my sleep. They work as advertised!
The customer service was so helpful and the brand seems passionate about protecting people's teeth.
Who is Remi?
Remiis a San Francisco-based wellness brand with a line of oral care products. Co-founded by Oscar Adelman and Yana Yasevich, Remi strives to provide affordable and accessible night guards and teeth whitening direct to the consumer.
The dynamic duo both shared a struggle to grind their teeth, and both had tried over-the-counter and expensive custom night guards for over a decade.
Yana and Oscar also hated how time-consuming and tedious the process of getting a dental night guard was, and they figured there had to be a better way.
in summary,Oskar said Remi"Offers a high quality custom solution between the one-size-fits-all over-the-counter guards and the $500-$800 custom guards sold by dentists."
You may be thinking, why should I buy a custom night guard when I can get a custom made, custom night guard at the drug store for $20?
According to several dentists, including North Carolina dentist Erik Reitter, “It is better to wear nothing than to wear one that has not been properly fitted. A poorly trained night watchman can alter your bite.”

- Comprehensive guide
- Hard wearing and long lasting

Remi Night Guards review experience
As a chronic teeth grinder, my dentist has been recommending night care for some time.
I've always been hesitant because I've never been a fan of going to the dentist. I had also heard of night watchman home impression kits but didn't know which one to choose.
Remi boasts a30 Day Money Back GuaranteeIf your mouthguard doesn't fit well or you just don't like the product, I took the plunge.
Impression Kit Experience
To make my impressions, I mixed the blue and white clays together. After combining, I added the mixture to the smaller of the two impression trays. Then I just put the tray in and waited about five minutes.
I prefer the molding compound that comes in the remi kit compared to the goop dentist used for impressions. It didn't drip all over my mouth, which I appreciated because I have a pretty strong gag reflex.
The five minute wait was a little long in my opinion, but still bearable as the audio stayed where it was supposed to.
Night Watchman Experience
I have myRemi Custom night watchmanin the mail about two weeks after sending in my prints.
I was skeptical but excited to try them. After taking the night guards out of the box (well packaged product btw) my first impression was that the plastic felt decently thick and lacked flexibility.
The idea of wearing both an upper and lower night guard was concerning because I didn't want them to interfere with my sleep. I imagined they would be very noticeable in my mouth. However, the Night Guard fitted my teeth fairly well and didn't feel like it altered the alignment of my resting teeth/jaw.
I was really impressed with how well the Remi night guards fit and honestly it didn't feel like I was wearing much of anything after a few days.
The only negative I experienced was the night guard's plastic, which came up a bit high on my gum line. This may be different for every user, but for me the plastic edge occasionally rubbed or caught on my lip as I drifted off to sleep. Once asleep I had no problems.
All in all, I'm really enjoying my new oneRemi night watchman.
I definitely hate how annoying it can be to get an individual night watch from a dentist. So it was incredibly convenient to be able to do the casting, fitting, etc. from the comfort of your own home.
I plan to stick with The Remi Club subscription option as it is cheaper in the long run and I like the results I get.
I feel like I've noticed an overall difference in the tightness of my jaw that is decreasing. It also feels good to have more peace of mind, knowing I'm not grinding my teeth.
My dentist also commented that he has prevented damage to my teeth since wearing my Remi night splints.

Are Remi Custom Night Guards of high quality?
All Remi Custom Night Guards are made entirely in the USA. They're made from BPA-free, dental-grade plastic that feels durable.
Remi claims to offer night guards of the same quality as what you would get from your dentist (minus the $400-$1,000 price tag).
A note on packaging, I really appreciated how minimal the packaging was for the impression kit and night guards.
The box you receive the impression kit in is the same box you use to ship everything back to Remi. Not having excessive packaging was a nice touch, unlike many digital retailers these days.
Are Remi Custom Night Guards worth it?
I did a lot of research to see how much home custom night guards should cost. Most I found were between $160 and $200, but there was a catch.
Compared to other custom night guard kits, Remi comes with a top AND a bottom guard for the same price as a single guard from brands like Clear Club and Cheeky.
For the convenience factor alone, it's worth paying around $150 for a full set of night guards. The amount of time and effort I saved by being able to complete the process 100% from home is priceless.
No multiple dentist visits, no complicated payment schedules, and no need to retake my impressions every six months.

Remi Night Guard Summary
I honestly wish soRemiwas there when I started grinding my teeth in college as I think I could have prevented a lot of damage to my teeth.
Between the convenience factor and efficient cost, Remi is 100% worth trying in my opinion. If you don't like your custom night guards you can easily return them, but I plan on continuing to use mine for the foreseeable future.
I recommend that you take your time making your casts and read the instructions carefully. I definitely screwed up by initially using the wrong size impression tray.
Remi does a great job of making step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow and they provide enough impression materials to take multiple impressions if you get confused the first time like I did.
I've been using my Remi Custom Night Guards every night since I got them and I have no plans to stop any time soon.
