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

"I had not been to the dentist in 8 years so I was nervous! Everyone here was super friendly, though, and answered all my questions. Nobody tried to upsell me on getting older but still sound fillings replaced, and the cleaning wasn't painful like I feared it might be. Considering no one really likes to go to the dentist, it was a good experience!"- A.P. / Google / May 31, 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 Woodcreek Dental Care. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentists at Woodcreek Dental Care in Ft. Worth, TX. 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 Woodcreek Dental Care 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. Woodcreek Dental Care 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 Woodcreek Dental Care take several types of payment and can help with financing plans.
