Dental Care of Mesa


Do you grind your teeth at night? At Dental Care of Mesa, we offer a custom-made nightguard that helps protect your teeth from unnecessary wear due to grinding or clenching. A nightguard is an appliance worn on the upper and/or lower teeth while sleeping to help reduce the potential for tooth damage, jaw pain, headaches, and other associated issues. We use high-quality materials to ensure a tight fit so you can get optimal protection throughout the night.


Whether it’s suffering from bruxism (teeth grinding) due to stress or other reasons such as poor sleep habits, Dr. Julee Weidner and her team provide personalized solutions tailored just for you so you can relax easier during your much-needed rest time. So don’t wait any longer! Get a comfortable and durable dental guard today!

Please schedule an online appointment with us to look into our quality, affordable dental care services!

Why Wear a NightGuard?

You might wear nightguards for various reasons. Consistent use of them can help protect teeth if you grind or clench your teeth often, as this can cause them to wear down. This is called bruxism. Grinding and clenching teeth can happen when people are sleeping or awake. 

Another reason you might wear one is to help with jaw pain, for example, if you suffer from a condition known as TMD. TMD is a condition associated with the temporomandibular joint, the joint which connects your lower jawbone. With TMD and associated jaw issues, your jaw may click and pop when you chew, causing sensitivity. Nightguards can help. 

What Are the Benefits of NightGuards? 

 Nightguards are designed specifically for you from a mold of your teeth. They are lightweight and made with your comfort in mind. They can reduce the amount of stress which is placed on your muscles and jaw joints. 

And by protecting your teeth from grinding, nightguards can help reduce the amount of wear and tear you will experience. A nightguard can help prevent chipped teeth, wear to your enamel, and damage to any fillings you may have.  

Reducing the amount of stress placed is not only good for your teeth, but it can also help relieve headaches and neck pain, which temporomandibular disorders can also cause. 

How Do I Get Started?

Getting started with a nightguard is easy. Contact us today to begin your journey toward optimal dental health and comfort.

Step 1: Schedule a Consultation

The first step in getting a nightguard from Dental Care of Mesa is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Julee Weidner. During this appointment, she will examine your teeth, jaw, and bite to determine if you have bruxism and what type of nightguard would best suit your needs. She and her team may take x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth to assess their condition and ensure a perfect fit for your nightguard.

Step 2: Discuss Treatment Options

Once Dr. Weidner confirms that you have bruxism, she will discuss your treatment options with you. She will answer any of your questions.

Step 3: Get Fitted

We will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth using a putty-like material. This process is quick, painless, and usually takes less than 10 minutes. Our dental lab will then mold your teeth and fabricate a night guard from a durable, flexible material. You will return to our office in a few days to test the fit and adjust any minor discrepancies.

Step 4: Learn How to Wear and Care for Your NightGuard

Once you receive your nightguard from Dental Care of Mesa, we will teach you how to wear and care for it properly. You may need to wear it every night or only on certain occasions, and you should clean and store it after each use. We will also explain how to identify if your nightguard needs replacement or adjustment, such as if it becomes loose, cracked, or uncomfortable.

Step 5: Follow-up Appointments

After you get your nightguard, you may need to schedule follow-up appointments with our dentist to re-evaluate your condition and monitor the effectiveness of your treatment. We may suggest additional therapies, such as stress management, physical therapy, or dental restorations, to eliminate or reduce your bruxism symptoms. You should also inform us if you experience any problems with your nightguard, such as discomfort, irritation, or difficulty breathing.
