About Night Guards
Bruxism, the technical term for teeth grinding and jaw clenching while sleeping, disturbs a lot of people and may lead to headaches, pain, inflammation, and may develop into larger dental health concerns. To upgrade the level of sleep in patients around the Tega Cay, SC area, custom-made night guards are available at DentalWorks - Fort Mill by our dentists that can protect the jaw and teeth. Created from superior materials than generic night guards, custom-made night guards from DentalWorks - Fort Mill fit more snuggly, provide better protection, and last for a longer time.
"I had my first visit to see Dr. Hansen, and it was a good one. He and his staff were very professional and friendly. Looks like I picked the right dentist!"- M.P. / Google / Aug 28, 2017

"Fabulous office. I have been having weird issues with my insurance company, resulting in me not having been to the dentist for a full year and now I've got several issues with my teeth. Dr. Hansen (he told me to call him Richard, what a cool guy) was the most friendly, helpful dentist I have EVER been to. I'm pretty young and have found that a lot of doctors can be very patronizing to younger patients, but not with Dr. Hansen or any of the employees I spoke to. They are, however, VERY informative and answered every question I had under the sun.I had to drive 50 minutes to get there (I live in NC) because they're the closest provider that takes my insurance, but even when I get new insurance and can go to someone closer I will still return to this office.Karen, Rose, and the front office guy (his name escapes me!) are the bomb, super organized AND they sorted out everything with my insurance even though there were some technical difficulties. Tiffany (she took my x-rays and did my cleaning) was incredibly knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.I read some negative reviews from a few years ago and got nervous before I went in, but I think that they've gotten new staff or those reviews weren't legit, because I can't believe that was the same office. I wish I could give them more than five stars, I am more than satisfied with this office and excited to have found a dentist that I don't mind going to (even if the drive sucks)!"- E.M. / Yelp / Jul 25, 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 - Fort Mill. The custom night guard will be created from superior quality materials and sent back to our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill in Tega Cay, SC. 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 - Fort Mill 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 - Fort Mill 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 - Fort Mill take several types of payment and can help with financing plans.
