Plackers(R) Introduces First Disposable Ready-to-Use Dental Night Protector

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 9 Plackers(R), makers of the first disposable dental flosser, expands its line of convenient home dental care products with the Grind-No-More(R) Night Protector, the first disposable, ready-to-use night protector on the market that combats bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding.

An estimated 60 million adults currently grind their teeth and dental expert Dr. Nancy Rosen said on a recent Good Morning America appearance that bruxism cases are significantly increasing due to stress and anxiety from the down economy. Teeth grinding and clenching can create up to 250 pounds of pressure on teeth, causing enormous amounts of irreversible damage, including worn enamel and loss of tooth shape.

Night protectors like Grind-No-More are a proven way to help treat bruxism and protect teeth. While guards from a dentist office can cost hundreds of dollars and require continuous cleaning, Grind-No-More offers a hygienic, disposable alternative that comes ready to use without boiling, molding or messy cleaning. Each protector can be used for up to three nights.

Plackers is offering free samples of the Grind-No-More Night Protector through its website,

"Plackers is all about providing convenient, simple ways for people to improve their dental hygiene," said Ranir, LLC Chief Executive Officer Christine Henisee, makers of oral care products. "The Grind-No-More Night Protector is an easy solution for people who grind their teeth and want the hygienic benefits of a disposable product."

Sold in packages of 14 individually wrapped, travel-friendly guards, Grind-No-More Night Protectors retail for about $24.99 in select major retail chains or can be purchased online. For more information, visit
