“I remember waking up every morning with horrible pain deep inside my skull. I knew it was not a regular headache and was caused from my teeth grinding. The mouthguards were protecting my teeth, but what was I going to do to fix this debilitating pain? That is when I desperately searched on-line for a remedy. I thank my lucky stars I found your invention. Your biofeedback headband works so good. I only had to practice awake for about 30 minutes when I first got it. I didn’t bother with the numbers or records etc. My deep skull pain, jaw pain, and ear pain have never returned. Thank you!”
– Patty Thompson, Miami, FL
“Congratulations on your sleep guard product. I bought one a few months ago and it has helped me tremendously. I just ordered a second for a client of mine. I run a physiotherapy clinic in New Zealand and deal with quite a few patients with TMJ problems.”

“I clenched terribly during sleep for years before finding SleepGuard. My clenching made my jaw and fibromyalgia hurt terribly and sometimes it seemed like all I could do to get through a day. I went to different dentists and tried different mouth guards, but that turned out to be a waste of a lot of money. When I found SleepGuard on line, I thought it would never work for me because I sleep so deeply, but my husband encouraged me to try it, and I am so glad I did!
I don’t know how, but my subconscious mind responds to the biofeedback sound from the headband in my sleep. My nighttime clenching went down by more than 90% and my jaw pain is gone! My fibromyalgia still gives me some pain, but I enjoy my life now. I even finished writing a book I had given up on when my life used to be so miserable. I’m really grateful for the SleepGuard headband, and I’m really graceful my husband encouraged me to try it!”
– Diane Lawrence, Fort Lauderdale, FL
“My nighttime teeth clenching had gotten so bad that even while using mouth guards, I had broken two teeth, and destroyed the roots of several others so I needed two root canals and two root amputations. That was all within two years, and I destroyed several mouth guards in the process. The difference with the SleepGuard headband has been amazing. I have now gone four years with no damage to my teeth. I am grateful that someone created something that makes so much sense and works so well.”
– Bob Kirk, Pahoa, HI
“I had been a tooth grinder and had suffered from headaches for as long as I can remember. Muscle relaxants and mouth guards did nothing for my jaw pain and headaches. I even tried the NTI mouth piece and that made things worse. I was searching online and found SleepGuard and tried it. I doubted the daytime training would work for me, but it sure did. I have gone from about 15 headaches per month to about two headaches per month, and my jaw pain is totally gone. This little gadget is a life saver!”
– Michelle Young, Madison, WI
“I’ve come to hate dentists. They have such egos, it’s amazing. I went to four different dentists who each told me I needed a different kind of mouth guard, all of which I bought, and all of which didn’t help. Finally I went to a very expensive Beverly Hills “TMJ specialist”, and she was the worst. I spent over $10,000 on her and things got worse. After I found SleepGuard and cured my clenching habit by myself, I took it to her and showed her. She just ignored it and told me I should try a new $2000 mouth guard she heard about. Thank you for giving people an alternative that actually works!”
– Clarissa Jacobson, Los Angeles, CA
“I suffered with migraines for over 18 years. I tried every medication, and none helped. I went to pain clinics, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and nothing would stop the migraines. I also suffered from TMJ pain in my jaw, but I never connected the two until a friend told me that teeth clenching can cause migraines and suggested I try the SleepGuard headband. I was having three migraines per week at that point and I often felt I wanted my life to be over. The idea of wearing something on my head when I was in that much pain seemed crazy, but after about a year of my friend gently urging me to try it, I finally did. Within a week the amount of clenching the headband measured each night was down 80%, and I was only having half as many migraines. Within a month my clenching was down 90% and the migraines had totally stopped. I haven’t had a migraine now for over two years. Thank you for inventing this amazing product, and thank you for your personal help over the phone in coaching me on using it. It is so wonderful to be living without pain!”
– Elizabeth Carrington, Wakefield, MA
“For the first few years of my TMJ and migraine pain, I was able to keep working. I saw many specialists. I had a string of mouth guards, medications, and oral surgery. Most things I tried did not help. One oral orthotic that one specialist made me helped some at first, but my bite quickly shifted so it didn’t help. I even got a total hysterectomy because one surgeon told me it would solve the problem. After a few years things got so bad I was put on disability. I would spend most of each day in bed in pain. I just wanted to die, but I kept trying anything I could find that I had not tried, and thank god I did. Your SleepGuard device is a miracle. After using it for only one week, I started having days with much less pain. Within two months, I was completely out of pain.”
-Linda Lavoie, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
“Thank you for your work on the SleepGuard. How wonderful to have somebody championing for the many of us who suffer from TMJD, and what a brilliant and safe idea!
I began using my SleepGuard as instructed by training myself during the day to respond properly to the relax tone, and also using the first few nights to get a baseline of my grinding. This was very interesting to me because it confirmed that I grind/clench about twice as much with my mouthguard than when I don’t have it in. I had long suspected my mouthguard was making things worse, and the numbers confirmed it with certainty.”

“I have never used a biofeedback device so targeted, calibrated, and effective out of the box with zero required threshold adjustment and with so little placement requirement other than placement on the forehead. It seems like an impossible feat to have achieved. “
– Eric Greenberg
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help with all my emails and more importantly, for being one of the extremely few people in the world willing to help bruxers like myself who are absolutely crying out for help.”
– Deborah Cleary
“My nightly clench count and clenching time have been getting lower and lower. The first 2 nights were around 3 minutes of clenching each, and this morning I was so excited to read 28 seconds (down from over 200) and it hasn’t even been a week. I have barely any jaw, temple or neck pain! I told my husband I felt like a different person. I know that’s a stretch, but I was so miserable being in pain all of the time.
The price of the unit is 1/3 of the price of a crown. We don’t have dental insurance at the moment so I know exactly how much they cost and spending $1200 on a tooth with a filling that I cracked while I was sleeping was the final straw. I only wish I had gotten this thing sooner. Oh well, hind sight is always 20/20.
– Sheila Price
“I really cannot thank u enough. I didn’t even realize how poor my quality of life was before and how much I had been affected. All I can do is spread the word as a token of my appreciation and to help save others!! THANK YOU!!”
– Jennifer Peruso
I purchased one of your headbands a year ago and am extremely delighted with the results. In fact, I’ve told several healthcare professionals about it. My pain is almost gone and I am sleeping much better.”
– Kim Brennan
“The SleepGuard headband is amazing. It has truly saved my health and well being, improving my quality of life. Thank You!”
– Karen Davis
“My daughter Hayley is having great success with the SleepGuard. She has been dealing with this grinding problem for 6 or 7 years and when she spoke with me about it in March she was in tears. Your product was just about her last hope. She has worn splints, taken muscle relaxors, and more recently received biofeedback at college, but the SleepGuard by far has been the best for her.
– Mark Welch, Spirit Lake, IA
“I knew that mouth guards did not work for a permanent solution as I knew that I just bit down harder and my teeth hurt more in the morning. My background is psychology and I know that conditioning is very important in teaching others to change behavior so I understood the rationale behind your product. It has enabled me to get out of pain and I am very thankful for that. Products like this that empower people’s natural abilities aren’t “big money”, so they don’t get written about in the press. I am glad I found SleepGuard!”
– Vicki Sainsbury
I received my SleepGuard on Dec 10. I think your product is amazing! My baseline scores were 68, 68, and 33 then dropped to 9, 11, and 17 with biofeedback the first three days! (I have since been as low as 2 and as high as 29, so some fluctuation). Thank you”
– Laura McGrail
I wear your biofeedback headband in conjunction with a night guard, and it has really helped me cut down on tooth damage and neck problems caused by clenching. It is a wonderful invention, and one that I have shared with my dentist and physical therapist. Thanks for finding a way to help us “rock-eaters” (the name my dentist coined for me…).”
– Wendy Cass
I have decided to keep the SleepGuard – I stopped wearing it (as a test) for a couple of days and I had a horrible migraine and my jaw and facial muscles were hurting so bad… I really think it works. Thank you for all your help when I had challenges – I am glad I didn’t return it.
– Jen Andrews
“Lee, I have been using the modified SleepGuard unit you made for me for a few days, and it is incredibly effective at suppressing clenching during the day. I think Dr. Ness wants to write a paper with me on this device. Will keep you posted.
– Edward V. LaBudde
“This is really an amazing little machine you’ve developed! I am so grateful to finally be out of pain.”
– Elizabeth Pulcini
“Thank you Lee. I am so grateful for the time you have spent developing this product, and in helping me on the phone! I am blessed as a result of your work, and only wish I found it sooner!”
– Vicki McLure
“When I have been to doctors and dentists, it seems like all too often their priorities are to have you come back every year to buy a new mouth guard instead of fixing the core problem- i.e. treating the symptoms not the cause. What’s great about the Sleep Guard is that conceivably you could train yourself over time to lose the clenching and grinding habit altogether, so it seems like definitely more of these medical “professionals” should at least encourage people to try it.”
– Michael Young
“I am using your unit now for about 10 days, and its literally saving my life!
I was wondering if you have any refurbished units on hand?
I would like to order a backup unit for travel.
This thing is too valuable to take outside the house without a backup.
– Jon Lovvorn
“I really love my headband! It has made such a huge difference and these days I can go weeks without wearing it because it’s done a good job of training me not to clench. Eventually I’ll get sick or stressed or something starts up the clenching again, but the headband stops it right away.”
– Laura L Felten
“Last night was my first night wearing the Sleepguard with the tones on. My score was 9 and time was 6!!! That’s a 90 percent drop in my clenching in one night!”
– Deanne Rechtenbaugh
A very happy new year to you!
Just to confirm that I am very happy indeed with the device and would not think of returning it to you! It has made a great deal of difference to the quality of my sleep since I have been using it. On some nights the clenching has gone down to 1 or 2 with minimal duration (this is on setting 5 with volume at 2). Even on more disturbed nights, the clenching has never returned to my top score of 56 which was what I started with, so a very definite improvement.”
– Rachel Kelemen
“Thank you so much! I wrote you a good review on Amazon, but I want to tell you again how much I love your product. It’s such a good idea, and the only one out there that I know of that actually works to address the source of the problem. I’ve seen really good results with it!”
– Kaylei Burke
“Thank you so much lee for the refurbished sleep guard & extra batteries. Much appreciated & am so much happier with less clenching now!!”
– Justine Thompson
“After two months using the SleepGuard headband, I can say that I’m in a much healthier and happier place than I was 3 months ago. I’ve also been able to reduce the amount I need to use the SleepGuard quite drastically..”
– Kevin Chiu
“By the time I found this device I was at wits end. I have eventually destroyed each mouth guard I’ve had. I used to wake up with a headaches, jaw aches, and earaches every morning. Some nights because one mouth guard I wear is really hard plastic, in the morning, my jaw was literally out of the joint – presumably from clenching so hard. I have even created something ‘tori’ in my gums from the clenching.
I am wearing the SleepGuard headband every night without fail and I am getting better. One night I didn’t wear it and the next morning my pain was back, so now I wear it every night!
The mouth guard, while saving my teeth, does no good. There was no solution until I found yours.
I just wanted to thank you for developing this device!! “
– Andrea Wilson
“Oh my goodness. Had I known that there would be such an easy solution to the problem, I would have contacted you long ago! That is what I get for trying to tough it out.
Thank you very much!”
– Laura Martin
“Hello Lee, I thought it was time to check in again and let you know how this Canadian sleep guard customer is doing. I must say that I am so happy with the depth of my sleep now. I am learning a lot about how my tongue affects the suction with which my clenching presents itself. This has helped me a lot to recognize throughout the day when this occurs. If I am concentrating, this suction happens and the cycle begins. My numbers are much lower than the initial of 69 for score and 123 for time. Now they are usually about 12 and 6 for the same. I am really fortunate to have found your site and thank you for your invention and dedication.”
– Vicki Sainsbury
“Before finding this cure, I would experience severe ear pain during the day. Now all my pain is gone. Your biofeedback headband works so good. I only had to practice awake for about 30 minutes when I first got it. Within two weeks all my pain was gone. I am certain your invention has transformed the wellbeing of many other people just like me. Thank You!”
– Diane Reynolds, Los Angeles, CA
“I paid $2300.00 out of pocket for a TMJ Splint that was totally useless and a horrible waste of money, purchased more on naivete to Doctors’ cunning influence rather than on helping someone.”
– H. E. Thomas
“The sleep guard has really worked to reduce my clenching during the month I used it, and I’m mentioning it to friends with the same issue.”
– Julie Yael
“Before SleepGuard, every morning I would wake up feeling like I had been through a 10-round fight. My jaw and temples were tender and throbbing…my eyes were bloodshot. I searched the Internet for years for something that would help, and finally found an answer. When your package arrived, I was eager to try it and have been satisfied with the results ever since.”
– K. Meehan, New York City
“I’m simply amazed at how effective this device has been for me. Averaging the first 30 days of data shows that I dropped from over 9 seconds of clenching per hour to less than one second per hour.
I was quite skeptical before using it, but the three-week free trial period convinced me to give it a try. Initially I was concerned that the alarm would constantly wake my spouse, but it hasn’t been a problem at all.
Thank you for making such a device available at a reasonable price.”
-Ron Blackstock, Saint Petersburg, FL
“Your product is unbelievable – I would not know where I would be without it!”
– Sito, Redwood City, CA
“Thank you for creating this product for people with bruxism who have nowhere else to turn after trying conventional remedies. The product has helped me immensely and has reduced my clenching significantly. I will recommend this product to anyone with this problem.”
– Kirsten, Cape Coral, FL
“My grinding and neck pain are greatly reduced since purchasing my SleepGuard biofeedback headband, thank you.”
– Anne McCullagh Rennie, Australia
“I was a serious grinder, but in a matter of weeks, SleepGuard helped me stop clenching and grinding my teeth. No more headaches. No more sore jaw. And best of all, I haven’t had to wear a night guard in over a year!”
– L. Russell, Boston
Clarissa Jacobson (interviewed by Elizabeth Carrington) came to hate dentists. She went to six dentists over a period of years (including one of the premier Beverly Hills TMJ specialists), spent over $20,000 on mouth guards and other treatments, and nothing helped until she tried the SleepGuard biofeedback headband.
Bob Kirk (interviewed by Lee Weinstein) shares how the SleepGuard biofeedback headband helped him stop breaking teeth and stop needing root canals.
Michele Y. (interviewed by Elizabeth Carrington) used to grind her teeth, and suffered from headaches for many years. Mouth guards and muscle relaxants did nothing for these problems, and her NTI mouth guard actually made things worse. After she started using the SleepGuard biofeedback headband, Michele went from 15 headaches per month to one or two per month, and got rid of her jaw pain.
Diane Lawrence (interviewed by Elizabeth Carrington) tried many different mouth guards, but clenched so hard that her jaw and fibromyalgia hurt terribly. Muscle relaxants didn’t help, and she tried a specialized NTI mouth guard that “screwed up her jaw”. She now thinks of her life as “before SleepGuard and after SleepGuard”.
Elizabeth Carrington (interviewed by Lee Weinstein) tells of her 20-year struggle with migraines, which finally ended with the SleepGuard biofeedback headband. She went from having migraines at least 3 days per week, to having no migraines for over a year.
Liz Gardner (interviewed by Elizabeth Carrington) shares the story of how she finally got her years of migraines and TMJ problems under control with the SleepGuard biofeedback headband.
Linda L. (interviewed by Lee Weinstein) suffered from TMJ pain and daily migraines for years. She tried jaw reconstruction surgery, NTI (which made things worse), anticonvulsants, narcotics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, Botox injections, total hysterectomy (yes, some doctors tell people to do that), spent over $10,000 on dentists, got some relief through an orthotic, and within 10 nights of using the SleepGuard biofeedback headband she was out of pain. Within four months she could go months without wearing it.
