What to Expect
Our dentists will make molds of the patient's upper and lower teeth and take oral X-rays, which will be taken to a dental laboratory near Vista Ridge Dental Care. The custom-made night guard will be made from top quality materials and mailed to our dentists at Vista Ridge Dental Care in Erie, CO. The patient will have their new night guard checked and fitted by our dentists, who may make little adjustments for the best fit.
While fitting the night guard, our dentists will give every patient more thorough care guidelines on how to clean and store their night guard. With good care, a night guard can be used for up to three years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Our dentists at Vista Ridge Dental Care will look for general wear at the patient's yearly dental examination and help the patient 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 noticeable wear on their dental enamel from clenching and grinding. Vista Ridge Dental Care can get the patient's benefits through their insurance company to estimate the patient's out-of-pocket expenses.
