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 You'll Get 

  • A complete impression kit with instructions and pre-paid return mailer
  • A professionally made custom 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

What's the difference between the Retainer and the Retainer Night Guard?

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.

How long does it take to receive my retainer?

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

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.

    Chomper Labs The Retainer - for teeth retention and teeth grinding Review
    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!

    Night guard

    Fits well, however this one is made much thinner than my previous one that my dog chewed up

    Great Fit

    Overall my experience has been good. Being in Canada added a bit of cost and time for shipping across the boarder. Ultimately my night guard fits well and I'm happy to have found this alternative to the high cost option from my dentist.

    Easy process and really great product!

    I’m about two weeks in to using my new night guard/retainer, and so far I have only positive things to say. Even though I got the thickest option, it’s not very visible and super easy to talk with and I don’t feel it at night. I didn’t have any issues with the molding process and the fit is great after my first try. It took a while for my mold to get back to them, but I think that’s just postal delays right now.

    Product and Service is Great

    The night guard from Chomperlabs is a great option and product to help fight against nighttime grinding. This night guard perfectly fits your teeth and is much less noticeable and provides a greater level of comfortable than other night guards that I’ve used in the past!

    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!!!!!!!

    Perfect fit

    Shipping was fast, price was fair and the process of getting it sized was easy. The fit is nice and the retainer itself is smooth and it doesn't bother me when wearing it at night.

    Great and comfortable

    I purchased the night guard/retainer. Very comfortable to wear. Easy process and prompt service. I am very happy with my purchase so far.

    Great mouth guard, ok retainer

    I ordered the mouthguard retainer combo because I wear a retainer at night but also am a major teeth grinder and wanting to simplify things a little. I’m happy with the fit and feel, and as a mouth guard it’s been holding up pretty well! The one down side is I can feel that my teeth have shifted a little since I started wearing it and not my usual retainer. Other than that, the customer service was great and it shipped very fast!

    Night Guard + Retainer

    Chomper Labs were very helpful in ensuring that the molds were corrects before manufacturing them. They also helped send additional putty when the mold wasn't good enough. When the night guard + retainer arrived, it fit very well the first time without any sharp edges. Overall, the entire process to create the mold and receive the night guard was easy and painless.

    Great experience!

    Customer service was very helpful when I explained my situation (I have a strong gag reflex and can't tolerate most nightguards). The price was very reasonable and the guard fits well. Best of all, no gagging on my nightguard anymore! I definitely recommend Chomperlabs and will be a repeat customer.

    I love it. Totally worth it!

    I had a night guard from Germany and unfortunately I left it there on my last visit. So I went to different dentists in the states, but they wanted $400 or more. I was shocked, because I never paid for it with insurance before. My husband mentioned this website and I thought I will just try it. I am really surprised how fast I got the product and the quality is awesome. It’s totally worth it.

    Helpful and quick!

    I struggle to take impressions a few times, but customer service was very quick to help and make things right! I received my Night guard, and it fits almost perfectly! It’s a bit tight in a few places and my teeth are a bit sore upon waking up. But great customer service!

    Chomper Labs The Retainer - for teeth retention and teeth grinding Review
    Great fit and customer service!

    My new night guard fits perfectly! I got the retainer version and it is holding my teeth in their place (unlike my dentist-made guard which shifted them around every night.) It’s so much better than what I had before from my dentist office. It’s comfortable and also not too noticeable. I wasn’t sure if my impressions came out right so I emailed pictures and got an almost immediate response. There are definitely grind marks on it, so I hope it holds up. But so far it’s been good and so is the customer service!

    Retainer night guard for teenage son

    This was a great process! I love that you can send pictures of your impression first before sending it. My son didn't have a good first one so they sent a new set, included in the cost, and that one worked well! My son says its good after using it almost 2 weeks and I hope it lasts longer than the retainer he got from the ortho because of his grinding. So glad to have an option that isn't $500! I would definitely recommend Chomper Labs!

    Gets the job done - excellent service

    I needed a mouth guard for grinding but didn't want to stop using my retainer which is why this option was great for me. Price seemed fair comparing to others but the customer service has been fantastic. Only reason I'm giving 4 stars is that after a month of use I'm already able to feel a little wear on my retainer and I'm not a heavy grinder, which makes me think I'll need to cough up more dough for a replacement sooner than I would like. The retainer itself fits great and protects my teeth.
