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.
"My husband needed an emergency appointment and they were quick to get us in. They did what needed to be done. The staff is very helpful and understanding. Definitely going back."- F.D. / Yelp / May 25, 2020
"My experience today at Dental Works as a new patient was good. I hadn’t visited a dentist office in years and scheduled an appointment for a dental emergency. Not only did they get me scheduled on the same day, but they also extracted the tooth that was bothering me and helped me get back on track just prior to closing. The front desk staff were friendly and supportive and the dental hygienist and dentist were professional and easy to interact with. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a dentist."- K.J. / Google / Mar 06, 2020
"I had a lower front tooth break off only to see there was a cavity. I contacted DW and they called me on Friday and made me an appt for the following Monday at 8:00a.m. I got in on time and they were able to fill the tooth on the same day. I was very happy. :)"- L.B. / Google / Mar 03, 2020
"The visit was good, friendly and professional staff. I would like them to ask how you're doing, or are you ok, while performing procedures, not once was l asked that during my cleaning, she did a great job cleaning my teeth, but just to the staff, l think that would be helpful at least for me. Thank you."- J.P. / Google / Mar 02, 2020
