About Night Guards
Bruxism, the clinical term for teeth grinding and jaw clenching at night, affects many people and may cause headaches, pain, inflammation, and may lead to bigger dental health problems. To improve the quality of sleep in patients around the Aurora, CO area, custom night guards are available at Cherokee Trail Dental Care by our dentists that can protect the jaw and teeth. Made from higher-quality materials than over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards from Cherokee Trail Dental Care fit more comfortably, offer greater protection, and last for a longer time.
"Very very very good! Just finished a root canal with Dr. Eugenio Montecinos- didn’t feel a thing! I didn’t even feel the shot to numb me! Was in and out of there quick. They are also taking full precautions during the pandemic too- all of them were wearing the necessary gear to protect themselves and others- which was comforting! I feel happy to say that I will bring my family here. Great service and professional staff! Highly recommend!"- H.W. / Google / May 13, 2020

"Very friendly stuff I had a very hard case and needed to figure out why i was getting bills and the new front desk person May was amazing she knew exactly how to help me and she was fast super happy you guys brought her on:)"- A.O. / Google / Nov 23, 2019
"Dr. Justus and staff are great! My Wife had extensive work done last week. From check-in the front desk Supervisor was professional, caring and patient. The office has such a great system that nothing was left to chance. They gave both my Wife and I copies of after care. I was given prescriptions to pick up while the surgery was going on. They called me by phone to give updates on how everything was going. After surgery Dr Justus and staff went over the procedure and how they felt it went. They went over further the home instructions. No one likes to have dental surgery. But it's a comfort to have Doctors and staff who give patient and family such professional care. A Big Thank You! From my Wife and I."- K.B. / Yelp / Aug 30, 2019
