"Tanya was nice enough to take my call regarding pushing up my appt before my surgery. And it was her that told me earlier that I need to talk to the surgeon prior to any dental work as many doctors want you on an antibiotic. Tanya is very knowledgeable!!! Thanks Tanya for your patience with me and Dave and all our appointment issues. Your the best."- C.S. / Google / Aug 14, 2017

What to Expect
Our dentists will make physical impressions of the patient's upper and lower teeth and take dental X-rays, which will be given to a dental laboratory near DentalWorks - Aurora. The custom night guard will be created from superior quality materials and sent back to our dentists at DentalWorks - Aurora in Aurora, IL. The patient will have their new night guard checked and fitted by our dentists, who may make small adjustments for a comfortable fit.
While fitting the night guard, our dentists will give each patient more detailed care information on how to clean and store their night guard. With ideal care, a night guard can be used for 1 - 3 years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Aurora will assess for general wear at the patient's annual dental exam and 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 obvious wear on their enamel from grinding and clenching. DentalWorks - Aurora can determine every patient's benefits through their insurance company to figure out the patient's out-of-pocket bill. For patients who do no have insurance or if their insurance company does not pay for the cost of a night guard, our dentists at DentalWorks - Aurora accept many forms of payment and offers financing plans.
