About Night Guards
Bruxism, the technical term for teeth grinding and jaw clenching while sleeping, disturbs a lot of people and may lead to headaches, pain, inflammation, and may develop into larger dental health concerns. To upgrade the level of sleep in patients around the Pearland, TX area, custom-made night guards are available at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics by our dentists that can protect the jaw and teeth. Created from superior materials than generic night guards, custom-made night guards from Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics fit more snuggly, provide better protection, and last for a longer time.
What to Expect
Our dentists will make physical impressions of the patient's lower and upper teeth and take dental X-rays, which will be given to a dental lab near Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics. The custom night guard will be created from superior quality materials and sent back to our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX. The patient will get their custom night guard fitted and checked by our dentists, who can make small adjustments for a comfortable fit.
When fitting the night guard, our dentists will give each patient more detailed care information on how to store and clean their night guard. With ideal care, a night guard can be worn for 1 - 3 years. The patient should wash the mouth guard before and after every wear. Our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics will assess for unusual wear at the patient's annual dental exam and decide if the night guard should be replaced or repaired.
Part or all of the expenses may be paid by insurance if the patient shows obvious wear on their enamel from grinding and clenching. Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics can determine every patient's benefits through their insurance policy holder to figure out the patient's personal bill. For patients who do no have insurance or if their insurance policy doesn't pay for the expenses of a night guard, our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics take several types of payment and can help with financing plans.
