About Night Guards
Bruxism, the clinical term for teeth grinding and jaw clenching at night, affects many people and may cause headaches, pain, inflammation, and may lead to bigger dental health problems. To improve the quality of sleep in patients around the Wake Forest, NC area, custom night guards are available at DentalWorks - Wake Forest 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 - Wake Forest fit more comfortably, offer greater protection, and last for a longer time.

"I have been going to DentalWorks in Wakeforest for three years and I must say that from the front door to the dental chair they are AWESOME!! MJ and Laconia ( dental Hygienists) are truly the best. They took the time to explain the procedure to me and treated me with kindness. Monique Avery"- M.A. / Yelp / Jul 02, 2019
"I have been seen at this office since they first opened. My dental hygentist is awesome in cleaning my teeth 3 to 4 times a year and the dentist who has been seeing me since almost the beginning has been awesome in making sure I keep all my teeth and my mouth is healthy. If I have problems, they are always taken care within the timeframe they need to be. But I also clean my teeth when I am not at the dentist so it is a group effort. It has been a great experience all the way around and I would recommend them to anyone."- D. / Google / Jun 20, 2019

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 - Wake Forest. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentists at DentalWorks - Wake Forest in Wake Forest, NC. 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 - Wake Forest 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 - Wake Forest can confirm each patient's benefits through their insurance policy holder to calculate the patient's personal cost.
