The Retainer

If you need a retainer but also grind or clench your teeth, this one's for you. The Retainer keeps your teeth in place and prevents them from shifting over time but also protects them from your grinding or clenching. It's made from a unique, slightly denser material than the Hard night guard and is offered in two variants:

  • Retainer: If you just need a retainer, we recommend the 1mm ultra clear version. This is perfect for after orthodontic work or as an upgrade from the wire and plastic retainers. They're pretty much invisible, easier to clean, and the right thickness for comfort so you'll actually wear them.
  • Retainer Night Guard: If you also grind or clench your teeth, we recommend the 1.5mm version. Though it sounds minor, the increased thickness adds the extra protection and durability needed to absorb your grinding and clenching forces while preserving that perfect smile.

What's Included 

  • A complete impression kit with instructions and pre-paid return mailer
  • A professionally made custom retainer night guard that fits your teeth perfectly
  • Light blue custom plastic case for your night guard
  • Fast and free all-inclusive 3 way shipping

    frequently asked questions

    The Retainer is our standard ultra-clear retainer. It's 1mm thin and perfect if you simply need a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting. The Retainer Night Guard is slightly thicker (1.5mm), and made out of a more durable material designed to also withstand grinding or clenching. This is a great option if you're looking for a Retainer but also grind or clench your teeth.

    You can generally expect your custom made retainer night guard to land on your doorstep about a week or so after we receive your impression.

    As it's hand made, we take about 2-3 business days to create your night guard and another 3-4 days for shipping. Shipping is free all 3 ways but if you'd like to speed things up, there are faster shipping options at checkout or you can take advantage of the Fast Track option, where we can turnaround your night guard within 24 hours. Please expect minor delays during peak holiday times.

      Quick , efficient, and convenient service!

      After searching soooo many places for something that will keep my teeth in place and will also help the teeth grinding, i ran into this place. My impression kit came in pretty quickly and it was very easy to use. Unfortunately, I didn’t follow their instructions correctly and I messed that one up (completely my fault, their instructions are very easy). I sent them a picture to see if they could still use it ,which they couldn’t but they sent me a new kit immediately. I sat on it for a while and completely forgot about it for months. I finally did it, sent them the new kit back and had my new retainers within that week! They were extremely friendly and I would recommend them to anyone! Saves me a trip to the dentist and it’s less than half of their cost.

      I wish I could give more than five stars. I have severe TMJ disorder ( i grind my teeth and it sounds like a wood chipper) to the point where I cracked a molar and had to have a root canal. I would wake up, my mouth would be so sore, painful, I would have headaches, etc etc, you get the point. I had been to my primary dentist and was told that night guards would not fix my TMJ and I would need plastic surgery to realign my jaw. I saw a dental plastic surgeon for giggles and I was quoted 2k even with a referral! my insurance wouldn't cover it, since it is "not necessary " and considered cosmetic. Need less to say, I turned to the internet. I found Chomper Labs, read probably 50 reviews before ordering a upper night guard. This crew has been so nice and patient with me, as my teeth are nearly ground down and had to send in 3 different impressions cause I was struggling to fit the putty. I do not regret my decision to go with chomper labs AT ALL. They have saved my teeth and saved me hundreds of dollars!! you have a lifelong customer out of me!!!!!!!

      Fantastic Journey

      Having two porcelain top front teeth, I’m always weary about anything going on or near my teeth. After having worn a bottom guard for several years, my TMJ was unmanageable. I was told to try an upper guard, so I did! I am so happy I did. My lower jaw does not hurt anywhere near as much as before, and the tightness (scary at first) has not pulled my two front teeth out! I am happy with the quality of Chomper Labs!

      They made it right!

      When I wanted to re-order my previous mold night guards, I messed up the process at least twice and they fixed it! They handled the issue and sent them to me w/o further hassle or charge! Incredible company truly committed to getting and keeping your pleasing smile!

      It took two tries, as I started with a hard lower that was much too soft for my fierce grinding, and then I ordered a retainer upper. Both together caused headaches, but the retainer upper on its own has been a more than sufficient replacement for my dentist-prepared guard that I should have replaced years ago (and would have if I had known about Chomper Labs). The process is so smooth and the customer service is fabulous. My experience is all promises and expectations have been completely fulfilled, including an easy return and quick refund of the one that didn’t work as hoped. Grateful for this option, so grateful! If quality remains, I’ll remain a future customer for sure.

      Great night guard

      Easy to order and quick to arrive. My night guard/retainer is slightly thicker than other ones I’ve tried so it’s really comfortable (no sharp edges) and perfectly maintains my orthodontic work.

      Just what I needed

      I had been struggling with another custom nightguard company for a year or two that never got the fit of the guard right, despite multiple back-and-forth emails with them. Decided to switch to Chomper Labs, who got the fit of my guard right the first time. :)

      Great retainer/night guard

      After my puppy chewed up my last night time retainer, I found out it was now $500 dollars to replace it. It had been $500 for 4 previously. I looked online for alternatives. Most seemed to be too big and uncomfortable. I wanted a strong, well formed retainer that would still allow me to get a good sleep. My husband found Chopper Labs and I've been very happy with one retainer/night guard ata great price. I will return to get another one in a couple of years. Thank you so much!

      My night guard "OK"

      The problem is I tried and failed 2 or 3 times to take a usable impression. The result is the night guard is 1 tooth too short on each side. Is usable, but not what I wanted. Other then that it seems to work and is comfortable Maybe next time I'll get it right

      Great Product and Experience

      I got the hybrid night guard and it has been everything I hoped! Both top and bottom fit perfectly and Chomper Labs gave me a free 2nd attempt at molding when my first attempt didn't come out ideally. I have now had the top guard for about 2 years and it is still in great shape despite my night grinding. Highly recommend.

      Do your own impressions with help. Send the impressions in, and then you get your night guard. It’s simple and simply great.

      I really needed this!

      I didn't think I needed a night guard but thought I'd try this one since it was way cheaper than what my dentist was quoting me. Turns out I really did need it! I can see the grind marks on the guard and am so happy I have it to protect my teeth from now on. I also got the retainer version and an pleased with how well it's kept my teeth, just as good as my old retainer. I love it. It's also great that it's clear, so it looks way better than my old retainer too and feels like it's made of quality material. It took me two tries to get the imprint right but great customer service and was really happy with the result.

      Super easy process and fits perfectly! Shipping was fast and easy. Great solution at a fraction of the cost of the dentist.

      Night guard & retainer combo!

      Fast service, with quick responses to impression questions/photos. Great fit for both upper and lower night guard and retainer combo. Happy with purchase, even happier it was FSA approved!

      We’ve ordered replacement retainers twice from Chomper Labs, very pleased with how easy it is. Much better price compared to local dental/orthodontist office. My daughter needed the night guard because she ground through her last retainer nice option to have

      Great product and service

      The product is great. Much better than other versions I purchased. It is really accurate and helps just like the one I had purchased from the dentist. In addition, the customer service has been wonderful which is why I purchased from them again. My dog chewed up my first one and they were happy to assist with getting a new one immediately.
