What is a nightguard?

Similar to an athletic mouthguard, a nightguard is a dental appliance that fits in the mouth to create a barrier between the top and bottom teeth. This barrier protects teeth by ensuring they don’t come into contact with each other. Nightguards are meant to be worn at night as part of protecting your teeth and helping you get a good night’s sleep. A nightguard also decreases jaw pain and prevents headaches!

Will a nightguard fit comfortably?

If you are suffering from jaw pain, headaches, or notice worn teeth, we encourage you to schedule an appointment for a nightguard. At your initial appointment, Dr. Nguyen will discuss your symptoms and determine whether or not you will benefit from a nightguard. If you are a candidate, impressions of your teeth will be taken to create your custom nightguard. When your nightguard is ready, we’ll schedule a visit for you to come back into our office to make sure the nightguard fits comfortably and that any questions you may have about your new custom nightguard are answered.

Can a nightguard treat bruxism?

Unconscious teeth grinding is commonly known as bruxism. Bruxism treatment can be complete with a variety of tools to help protect teeth, decrease jaw pain, and prevent headaches. While a nightguard may not treat the cause of teeth grinding instantly, a nightguard can help prevent further damage to your teeth as you undergo bruxism treatment or TMJ treatment. If you use a nightguard for bruxism, we encourage you to bring it in with you to every appointment so we can frequently check its condition.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Very confident after leaving the office that my teeth are in greatttt hands. Above and beyond patient care. Very informative visits. A sense that they genuinely care about patient concerns. Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
