What to Expect

Your dentist will make impressions of your upper and lower teeth and take digital X-rays, which will be sent to a dental laboratory. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to the dentist. You will have your new night guard checked and fitted by your dentist, who may make minor adjustments for comfort.

Treatment Aftercare

While fitting the night guard, the dentist will give the patient more specific care instructions on how to clean and store your night guard. With proper care, a night guard can be used for several years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Your dentist will check for general wear at your regular dental appointments and determine when your night guard needs to be repaired or replaced.

Insurance Coverage

Some or all of the cost may be covered by dental insurance if it the patient has visible wear on their teeth from bruxism. Our office can confirm your benefits through your insurance to determine your out-of-pocket cost. For patient's without insurance or if your insurance does not cover your night guard, we accept many forms of payment and have financing plans available.
