About Night Guards
Bruxism, the clinical term for teeth grinding and jaw clenching at night, affects many people and may cause headaches, inflammation, pain, and may lead to bigger dental health problems. To improve the quality of sleep in patients around the Glen Ellyn, IL area, custom night guards are available at DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn by our dentists that can protect the jaw and teeth. Made from higher-quality materials than over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards from DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn fit more comfortably, offer greater protection, and last for a longer time.
What to Expect
Our dentists will make impressions of the patient's lower and upper teeth and take digital X-rays, which will be sent to a dental lab near DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentists at DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn in Glen Ellyn, IL. The patient will get their custom night guard fitted and checked by our dentists, who can make minor adjustments for comfort.
When fitting the night guard, our dentists will give the patient more specific care instructions on how to store and clean their night guard. With proper care, a night guard can be worn for several years. The patient should wash the mouth guard before and after every wear. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn will check for unusual wear at the patient's regular dental appointment and determine if the night guard should be replaced or repaired.
Part or all of the expenses may be paid by insurance if the patient shows visible wear on their teeth from bruxism. DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn can confirm each patient's benefits through their insurance policy holder to calculate the patient's personal cost. For patients without insurance or if their insurance policy doesn't cover the expenses of a night guard, our dentists at DentalWorks - Glen Ellyn take several types of payment and can help with financing plans.
