Bruxism, or grinding your teeth while you sleep is an everyday issue that affects many men and women. Even though the most obvious indicator is the deterioration of the outer portion of the teeth, nocturnal bruxism might also induce inflammation, headaches, and tooth pain, as well as discomfort in your neck and jaw. To guard your mouth against the effects of bruxism, board-certified dentist Dr. Brian Wong provides customized night guards that defend your teeth while you rest. Custom night guards are made with top-quality materials that fit comfortably in your mouth and improve the value of your sleep by eliminating jaw clenching and teeth grinding. If you would like to learn more about custom night guards at Brian Wong D.D.S. P.A., set up a consult at our Frisco, TX dental practice.
"Great dentist! I was so nervous about going to the dentist that I waited over a year to make the appointment. I just had an old filling and chipped tooth repaired by StoneBriar. It was the most comfortable dental procedure I have ever had. Everyone was so nice and made me feel super comfortable from the start. I have already made a follow-up appointment for a cleaning.I'm actually looking forward to my next appointment."- J.L. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2018
"I have been a customer for 4 years and I’m really happy with Dr. Wong and his staff members. It was a struggle to find a good dentist when I first moved here. Chris does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth and a very good person to chat with although I wish it was easier to respond bc I can’t when he’s cleaning lol. Dr.Wong is very thorough and always meets my expectations. They are very professional and friendly. They rarely try to upsell me in any thing that is not necessary. Sometimes I push back on x rays but I could see how it’s necessary to detect areas that may be overlooked by the human eye. I love the fact that they still require masks, survey and temperature being checked upon entering the dental chair, despite governor Abbott’s advice to open up all businesses to 100 capacity with no masks required. Thank you for making it a safe place for your staff and customers."- C.L. / Google / May 01, 2021

"I have been going to Dr. Wong for over 15 years. Since day 1, I've been treated like family. One time when I wasn't in my right mind, I tried a dentist that was closer to my house...huge mistake. It was a machine. That's a mistake I'll never make again;. Dr. Wong is HIGHLY recommended!"- M.M. / Google / Apr 17, 2021
"I love Dr. Wong! Been going to him for years and always have the CLEANEST teeth when I leave. Dr. Wong and his staff are always very positive and professional.10 stars!"- C.S. / Google / Apr 14, 2021
A number of symptoms may indicate that you are grinding your teeth and/or clenching your jaw while you sleep. You might wake up in the morning with tightness and pain in your jaw, or a headache, and facial swelling. Other indicators are loosened teeth and/or fillings, chipped enamel on your back teeth, a receding gumline, and tooth sensitivity. Teeth grinding and jaw clenching at night are often caused by stress, however they could also be brought on by misaligned teeth, allergies, a sleep disorder, or temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. As one of our trained dentists makes your bruxism diagnosis, they will also try to ascertain the culprit so that your night guard therapy can be coupled with other treatments for the best possible outcomes.
What to Expect
After Dr. Wong makes your bruxism diagnosis, our team will obtain oral impressions and digital oral x-rays to create your custom night guards. Next, we will send your specifications to a special dental lab where your specialized night guard will be created with the best products. After your night guard is finished and sent back to our office, you will return to our office for a fitting. Dr. Wong will make small adjustments so that it fits properly and comfortably. They will also give specific instructions on how to properly care for your night guard so that it lasts many years.
So that your night guard can work with maximal efficiency, you must wear it each night. Your night guard should relieve or eradicate the discomfort and dental complications created by bruxism, but if it doesn't, please inform our staff so we can address additional issues and try other options. In order to help keep your mouth and night guard in pristine condition, we recommend that you clean and care for both your mouth and night guard prior to and after each use. We ask that you bring your night guard to all future dental appointments so we can adjust and repair the guard as necessary.
Once you receive a bruxism diagnosis, some of your night guard may be paid by your dental insurance company. If you carry dental insurance, our billing personnel will call your insurance carrier to determine your benefits and coverage. At your preliminary appointment, a member of our financial team will give you information about our accepted payment methods as well as your costs, with or without insurance. To help you afford your dental care, Brian Wong D.D.S. P.A. can help you qualify for medical financing.
