About Night Guards
Bruxism, the clinical term for teeth grinding and jaw clenching at night, affects many people and may cause headaches, inflammation, pain, and may lead to bigger dental health problems. To improve the quality of sleep in patients around the Pleasant Hills, PA area, custom night guards are available at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills 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 - Pleasant Hills fit more comfortably, offer greater protection, and last for a longer time.
"Yesterday was my first time at the location. I had an abscess tooth and was in immediate need of relief. I just walked in and they were able to see me within the hour. Everyone was professional and kind. Since, Dentalworks was not able to remove the tooth, Dr. Gomez gave me a referral for an oral surgeon. The dental team also outlined a variety of procedures that I will need in the future (my teeth are horrible and it has been a while since I saw a dentist.) They all explained why the procedures would be needed versus just telling me about them. I appreciated it quite a lot. The fact I got xrays, a treatment plan, an antibiotic, and a referral immediately and for only a few dollars, I am more than pleased."- J.M. / Google / May 01, 2019

"DentalWorks was great! They took me in 5 minutes before my appointment time for my dental cleaning and exam. The hygienist was very good and the dentist was friendly and very good. They did a procedure on my front teeth to protect the nerve. I didn't need to schedule another appointment. Thanks very much!"- D.M. / Google / Feb 20, 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 DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentists at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills in Pleasant Hills, PA. 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 DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills 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. DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills 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 DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills take several types of payment and can help with financing plans.
