About Night Guards
Bruxism, the clinical name for grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw at night, affects many people and can cause inflammation, headaches, pain, and can lead to bigger oral health problems. To improve the quality of sleep in patients around the Glendale, AZ area, custom night guards are available at West Valley Family Dental 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 West Valley Family Dental fit more comfortably, offer greater protection, and last longer.

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 West Valley Family Dental. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentists at West Valley Family Dental in Glendale, AZ. 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 West Valley Family Dental 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. West Valley Family Dental can confirm each patient's benefits through their insurance company to calculate the patient's out-of-pocket cost. For patients without insurance or if their insurance company does not cover the cost of a night guard, our dentists at West Valley Family Dental accept many forms of payment and offers financing plans.
