SALINE, Mich., Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dental Advisor announced SOVA NIGHT GUARD as the Patient Products category winner for the Best Therapeutic Device in the 2016 Dental Advisor Product Awards. THE DENTAL ADVISOR awards recognize quality products and equipment, taking into account clinical and evidence-based research to honor the best.

"To be considered for an award, products have to receive an excellent rating by THE DENTAL ADVISOR, as well as stand out from all others in the market place," – said Dr. Sabiha Bunek, Dental Advisor's Editor-in-Chief in the 2016 Dental Award Products press release.

Designed in Saline, MI by Akervall Technologies, Inc., SOVA Night Guards are the thinnest, most comfortable OTC night guards on the market. SOVA Night Guards are only 1.6 mm thin, adding to their comfort. Noted for better durability and high impact resistance, SOVA night Guards are equipped with perforations that allow for a custom fit and natural flow of air and saliva. Built on the basis of bridge making engineering, perforations oscillate during night grinding and spread impact forces through the surface of the guard and away from teeth.

"There is a tremendous need for an affordable device that alleviates pain brought on by night grinding and TMJ,"- said Sassa Akervall, CEO of Akervall Technologies, makers of SOVA Night Guard. "Our SOVA Night Guard is non-obstructive, and at the same time non-compressible, making it virtually impossible to grind through. We are proud to have SOVA Night Guard recognized by the Dental Advisor as the product category leader. This recognition will help solidify SOVA's reputation in the marketplace and expand the innovation and benefits of SOVA Night Guards to a wider group of dental professionals and online consumers."


Made from high tensile strength thermoplastic material, SOVA Night Guard starts out flat and after immersion in 140 degree water becomes pliable. The night guard is then molded against the teeth until it becomes hardened - approximately one minute. The only one of its kind, SOVA Night Guard can be heated and remolded up to 20 times and can be fitted with orthodontic appliances. SOVA Night Guard is biocompatible, biodegradable, and BPA free.  A 120-day durability warranty is provided. Learn more about SOVA at
