What Are Night Guards?
Nighttime teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common issue that affects many people. While the most visible symptom is wear on the surface of the teeth, nocturnal bruxism may also cause inflammation, headaches, tooth pain, and discomfort in your jaw and neck. To guard your mouth against the effects of bruxism, we provide custom-fit night guards that cover your teeth while you rest. Night guards are made with high-grade materials that comfortably fit in your mouth and can improve the quality of your sleep by reducing grinding and clenching. If you would like to learn more about custom night guards at The Dentist of Allen, schedule a consultation at our Allen, TX dental practice.
What Can I Expect from Using Night Guards?
After an examination, we will take oral impressions and digital x-rays so your custom night guard can be created. We will then send your information to a dental laboratory where your night guard will be created from high-quality materials. When we receive your finished night guard, we will contact you so you can come in for a fitting. We may make minor adjustments so it fits properly and comfortably. We will also give instructions on how to care for your night guard so it will last for years.
For best results, you will need to wear your night guard every night. It should minimize or alleviate the pain and dental issues caused by bruxism, but you should inform our team if it isn't working so that we can explore other solutions. We recommend that you clean your night guard before and after each use to keep it in good condition. We ask that you bring your night guard to all future appointments so we can adjust or repair it as needed.
The Dentist Of Allen Reviews
Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!
I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.
I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.
Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
