About Night Guards
Bruxism, the clinical name for grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw at night, affects many people and can cause pain, inflammation, headaches, and can lead to bigger oral health problems. To improve the quality of sleep in patients around the Louisville, KY area, custom night guards are available at DentalWorks - Louisville by our dentists that can protect the teeth and jaw. Made from higher-quality materials than over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards from DentalWorks - Louisville fit more comfortably, offer greater protection, and last longer.

"Everybody I came into contact with here was awesome and very professional. I had been having terrible wisdom tooth pain (always fun) and they fit me in on the day I called to get it looked at. Getting my wisdom tooth out was relatively painless and Dr. Wofford was great to work with. They even worked with me on my lack of dental insurance and set me up to pay WAY less than I would've expected. I have always been anxious about the dentist, but everyone was so great here I would definitely recommend them to anyone."- M.C. / Yelp / May 21, 2018
What to Expect
Our dentists will make impressions of the patient's upper and lower teeth and take digital X-rays, which will be sent to a dental laboratory near DentalWorks - Louisville. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville in Louisville, KY. The patient will have their new night guard checked and fitted by our dentists, who may make minor adjustments for comfort.
While fitting the night guard, our dentists will give the patient more specific care instructions on how to clean and store their night guard. With proper care, a night guard can be used for several years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville will check for general wear at the patient's regular dental appointment and determine 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 visible wear on their teeth from bruxism. DentalWorks - Louisville can confirm each patient's benefits through their insurance company to calculate the patient's out-of-pocket cost.
