To upgrade the level of sleep in patients around the Lexington, NC area, custom-made night guards are available at DentalWorks - Lexington by our dentists that can protect the jaw and teeth. Created from superior materials than generic night guards, custom-made night guards from DentalWorks - Lexington fit more snuggly, provide better protection, and last for a longer time.
"They are the best, hands down. Dr. Baxley is the best Dentist I've ever been to."- D.H. / Google / Oct 07, 2018
"Dr. Black and his assistant, Karen, were so incredibly amazing at helping me through this process. I have been terrified of the dentist in the past, but my experience with Dr. Black was awesome. I had a full mouth extraction completed today, and I have had very little to no pain since it was done. I have already had multiple friends ask where I went and have passed along Dr. Black's information. Thank you all so much for everything!"- T.R. / Google / Sep 22, 2018

"This is my review for 8/8/2018 visit. I am so grateful to Molly at the front desk for how compassionately she worked with me to schedule an urgent appointment. She could hear my worry and made it her mission to get me in ASAP. She greeted me with a smile and I knew she was the Molly that helped me on the phone. Dr. Black and Kat made the procedure as easy as possible and I’m so pleased with the results. And Rebecca at checkout was just so nIce and pleasant to work with and schedule my next appointment. I LOVE LEXINGTON DENTALWORKS!!"- A.M. / Google / Aug 09, 2018

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.
