We provide a number of products to our patients, customized to proctect their dental health.
Many dental injuries can be prevented by using simple precautions. When playing contact sports, you can protect your teeth from damage by using a mouthguard. Mouthguards are available in pharmacies and sporting goods stores, but these are one-size-fits-all. Our mouthguards are custom-made to fit your mouth, offering optimal protection and comfort.
Our night guards are also customized for each patient. Night guards are specialized mouthguards to treat problems like night grinding and jaw clenching. When worn on a consistent basis, they can help prevent worn-down teeth, headaches, and jaw issues.
Snoring is not just a problem for those around you — it also ruins the quality of your sleep and can lead to other health problems. We provide medically-tested and affordable products to treat snoring and help you get a pleasant night’s sleep. They include:
- Mandibular advancement devices. These push your lower jaw forward to keep your tongue clear of your airway.
- Tongue retaining devices. These appliances pull the tongue forward. Although they lead to fewer therapeutic complications than mandibular advancement devices, they do take longer to get used to.
Sleep apnea is a condition where breathing repeatedly stops and starts. This most often occurs when the patient is sleeping. It can greatly interfere with your ability to get sleep and can potentially cause very serious health issues. A common treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine. When worn at night, the CPAP machine will keep the airway open so that your can breath easily and get a good night’s rest. Only a dentist can fit you with the mask needed to use the machine.
