What to Expect
Our dentists will make physical impressions of the patient's upper and lower teeth and take dental X-rays, which will be given to a dental laboratory near DentalWorks - Turkey Creek. The custom night guard will be created from superior quality materials and sent back to our dentists at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek in Knoxville, TN. The patient will have their new night guard checked and fitted by our dentists, who may make small adjustments for a comfortable fit.
While fitting the night guard, our dentists will give each patient more detailed care information on how to clean and store their night guard. With ideal care, a night guard can be used for 1 - 3 years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek will assess for general wear at the patient's annual dental exam and decide when the night guard needs to be repaired or replaced.
Some or all of the cost may be covered by dental insurance if the patient has obvious wear on their enamel from grinding and clenching. DentalWorks - Turkey Creek can determine every patient's benefits through their insurance company to figure out the patient's out-of-pocket bill. For patients who do no have insurance or if their insurance company does not pay for the cost of a night guard, our dentists at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek accept many forms of payment and offers financing plans.
