"I hadn't seen a dentist in years. I got lazy after my dentist retired and closed his practice and just never looked for a new one. A broken tooth finally forced me into what I should have done years ago. I've had two visits now and couldn't be happier. The staff and Dr. Baxley are amazing. They made sure of my comfort every syrup of the way. I wish I hadn't waited so long. This is pain free dentistry."- A.T. / Facebook / Nov 14, 2017

What to Expect
Our dentists will make physical impressions of the patient's lower and upper teeth and take dental X-rays, which will be given to a dental lab near DentalWorks - Lexington. The custom night guard will be created from superior quality materials and sent back to our dentists at DentalWorks - Lexington in Lexington, NC. The patient will get their custom night guard fitted and checked by our dentists, who can make small adjustments for a comfortable fit.
When fitting the night guard, our dentists will give each patient more detailed care information on how to store and clean their night guard. With ideal care, a night guard can be worn for 1 - 3 years. The patient should wash the mouth guard before and after every wear. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Lexington will assess for unusual wear at the patient's annual dental exam and decide if the night guard should be replaced or repaired.
Part or all of the expenses may be paid by insurance if the patient shows obvious wear on their enamel from grinding and clenching. DentalWorks - Lexington can determine every patient's benefits through their insurance policy holder to figure out the patient's personal bill. For patients who do no have insurance or if their insurance policy doesn't pay for the expenses of a night guard, our dentists at DentalWorks - Lexington take several types of payment and can help with financing plans.
