    My daughter had her 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, drink 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 this 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 Granddaughter got an expander put in by the orthodontist. It cut up her tongue immediately. We found these and when she got them, had immediate relief. Easy to use. Comes 4 to a pack. Her orthodontist didn’t know they made such a thing.

    I’m an adult with an expander that was literally killing me. These are great and have given me a ton of relief. I was literally about to have the ortho rip this thing out of my mouth because it was cutting my tongue- but this saved me. I bought several packs. 4 Stars because each one only lasts me a few days- but you don’t need them consistently. You must measure correctly & make sure it’s a fit that you’re comfortable with.

    My daughter just got a bar on the top of her mouth for her braces. The bar was cutting into her tongue and was very painful to talk, eat, and sleep. This was the only thing I could find that could act as a barrier between the bar and her tongue. She has been using it for a few days and has already found relief. Her tongue is beginning to heal. She uses it to sleep and while at home. This waxy guard is super easy to use. Simply dip in hot water, form to the roof of your mouth and then it hardens again. It is almost like a retainer. She is able to pop it out to eat and put it back in when done. This came with 4 pieces, so will continue to use the same one until it falls apart. Very good product. I highly recommend for anyone seeking relief.

    Really works well to reduce irritation from palate expander. Easy to mold and easy to clean.

  7. Rated 4 out of 5

    This product is amazing. It did exactly what I needed it to do, which was to protect my tongue. The only reason why I did give it the four stars was because it does disintegrate pretty fast. Besides that it was easy to use, and surprisingly very comfortable. My tongue was all cut up from the expander and this helped my tongue recover within a few days. I mainly only used it at nights to sleep because the mornings were very painful. I did take it to work one day and attempted to use it during the day but it was very hard to speak properly. This is definitely a temporary solution to just helping your tongue heal while you make your next orthodontist appointment. I recommend this product 100%

    I bought it because my younger child got expander and made marks on tongue. Previously it did cut tongue of my older child. The dentist said it will heal but it never did even after 5 years. this time I searched and found only this one product that could be used to keep the tongue safe. This product is not perfect as I used all the three pieces and the expander wires cut through this. If it was a bit more thicker that might be good. But Overall, it did worked. I had to order more.

    I bought this for my daughter who is wearing a MARA device. After 3 weeks of the MARA, in addition to the pain and discomfort of the whole thing….her tongue had deep cuts in the shape of the metal on the roof of her mouth. This product is the only thing we could find searching the internet. It is totally worth it. She can’t wear it out during the day because it’s not practical to talk much. She left the little handle on the front when molding it, and wears it at night to sleep and during the day when she is just watching TV/reading/on the computer. It would be nice for orthodontists to at least offer this product along with the wax they give patients.

    I really didn’t think these things would work and I thought only one was in the package but there are three and it helped my daughters tongue so much I’m glad I bought them. Will buy again if she needs more but one seems to last awhile.

    Great product. It comes with 3 guards. I have only used 1 continuously. It mold to your mouth.
    This product has saved my toungue from being sore from having a Device across my braces.
    I love it!

    I had an expanded put in the roof of my mouth and my tongue was really irritated. This REALLY helped provide relief while my mouth adjusted to the expander. Money worth spending and am so thankful for this guard.

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is easy to use as long as you do not eat or drink with it in your mouth. It will melt with hot water or hot beverages. Anything warmer than hot tap water will melt this product. It is a wax based product so care must be taken. It works great for me. I have burning mouth syndrome and it is a life saver. My tongue has that burning sensation when it touches the roof of my mouth, due to nerve ending damage, and this prevents that sensation. Although, this was not suggested for BMS it is totally effective.

    This saved my daughter from pain from her expander. I highly recommend this for anyone that has an expander. It is easy to form to your mouth. My daughter was so happy she could sleep with it. I would buy it again if needed.

    Ease of use for my daughter. Protects her tongue from her expander.

    Pricey but a Life Saver for my 15yr old that just had an expander installed. It was tearing up her tongue (actual spots of skin removed), these gave so much relief. Yes they will not last long, they are a palate of wax but So Very Necessary!

    Worked great for my son. He had an appliance that made his tongue feel sore/bruised. Ortho said it happens most of the time while they sleep. He used this for a few nights while he slept and it aloud his tongue to heal. He slept fine. He didn’t even have to continue using it since the soreness went away. My son’s tongue is still fine after using the tongue guard for 3 or 4 nights. He only used one out of the 3 pack. I would def recommend! It’s well worth it!

    These things really do work, instant relief. It comes in a set of three.. I recommend you purchase this before you get the expander but unfortunately you don’t know you need it until your mouth hurts.. it’s great I wish they had these in stores.

    My daughter used these after she got her braces and was adapting to the appliance in her mouth. They were easy to use and each one lasted a couple days. She didn’t wear all the time but they did provide short periods of relief.

    I have an adult palate expander and this thing saved my mouth! When I first got my appliance I couldn’t even sleep because it was ripping up my tongue! I slept with this tongue guard in and it saved my mouth!

  21. Rated 5 out of 5

    It has been a game changer. Super easy to form to the rough of your mouth. I had horrible sores all over my tongue after getting my quad helix expander a week and a half ago. It was unbearable after the first couple of days, I couldn’t eat (not even soft foods), or drink. I was so miserable and desperate. I got by with putting wax on certain areas until I got the tongue guards. I also got oralgel mouthwash for mouth sores. The only downfall is there are only 3 tongue guards per pack. The first one lasted me Saturday-Tuesday before it finally got a tear.

    This has been the best thing for my braces treatment. Has saved my life! No sore tongue. Have bought several times. And will continue to buy through out my whole treatment.

    I thought our 13 year old was going to remove the expander on his own with all the pain he was in. The wax the orthodontist gave us to help with pain was useless. These are a lifesaver! Today I am ordering a second set of three. Each mouth guard is only good for about 2 weeks before it cracks or wears down to the point it isn’t helping. Totally worth it though. His tongue has healed and the complaining has stopped!

    My 9 year old son has an expander that was literally slicing his tongue! The orthodontist simply gave us a mouth rinse to help with healing, but there really wasn’t anything to stop the slicing. My poor guy was in such pain. This mouth guard really provided relief. I was pleasantly surprised to find there were 3 pieces in the box, so I can re-size the mouth guard as his teeth moved. The directions were easy to follow. Also, I emailed a question and the response was super quick. Great customer service.
