    My stupid expander was cutting into my tongue and hurt so bad! I could not find any answer to my pain until I found this. It was shipped out fast and as soon as I got it I followed the directions by putting it in hot tap water and then formed it to the roof of my mouth over the expander. Instant tongue relief! I could not go another week with out this. It worked so good for me.

    My daughter had here expander put in, and the next day she started complaining that her tongue was hurting. I looked at it and she had indentations from the expander on her tongue. Her tongue pressing against the metal expander was making it painful for her to eat and even talk. Her orthodontist suggested trying to put some wax on the expander but the wax would not stay on. After searching the web for help, I came across Tongue Guard. As soon as it came in the mail we tried it. She said it felt so much better as soon as she put it in. It’s only been 2 days but her tongue is already almost healed. If you, a loved one or a friend is experiencing this, I would highly recommend this guard.

    My expander was cutting big grooves into my tongue and it hurt so badly! I don’t know if I had allergies to the metal or what but the cuts became white and infected. I went back to the ortho twice and he said I would just have to tough it out. There was no way I could go on like this. I could not eat, it was painful to talk and the pain was waking me up at night. I searched online and found a blog about tongue sores due to expanders and in the comments read about the Tongue Guard. I bought it and prayed it would work, and it did! After forming it to my mouth I felt instant relief. I wish I would have used this as soon as I got my RPE, then I would have never gone through the tongue pain.

    My expander was murder on my tongue! The metal was just digging into my tongue and hurt so bad. Thank goodness for this tongue guard. I don’t know what I would have done. It really does guard your tongue from the metal expander and allows your tongue to heal. Just wish I would have had one to start off with.

    I was miserable so I searched the internet and found this. I ordered it and it was the BEST THING EVER! My tongue was all cut up and hurt so bad. This kept my tongue off the RPE and made it so so much better. My tongue is already healing and its only been a day!

    I have a very high roof so every time I make one I end up ripping a hole in the top, it’s not a super big deal but I wish there was a little more plastic there to start off with but other than that it’s fantastic I had a deep cut from my expander that was infected, I got this and it went away in a couple days, the tongue guard is fantastic at protecting your tongue just wish it was a little thicker in the middle for people like me with high roofs

    • Thank you for your input. Thank you for understanding that the Tongue Guard will work for most users but there are a few that might have to adjust the tray to work perfectly for them. If you have a high roof, heat the tray up as directed, put it in your mouth and form it towards the roof of your mouth without biting down on it first. This will cause the sides of the tray to pull together but as long as you can still bite down on the tray a little on both sides it is fine. This make the tray reach up towards the roof with out thinning out so much it puts a hole in the tray. Once the tray is close to the roof, you can then bite down on the sides of the tray and finish forming the tray to your roof and REP with your tongue and sucking. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

    I got this about 2 months after getting an expander. I already had a bad cut on my tongue, but this made it thousands of times better. The cut is still not completely gone because I only wear this when it is really annoying me, but I wish everyone with an expander knew about this.
