If you or your children play contact sports, a properly-fitting, custom mouthguard is important. Don't settle for the store-bought "boil and bite", ask us about getting a mouthguard made specifically to fit your mouth. We can even have it ready in as little as one day.
If you have temporomandibular disorder (TMD), exhibit bruxism (grinding) or other night-time parafunctional habits, a nightguard or other nighttime appliance may be appropriate for you. A good oral appliance can help alleviate joint discomfort, muscle soreness and help protect your teeth from the damaging effects of clenching and grinding.
Do you snore? Do you wake up feeling tired, with sore muscles or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain? Are you groggy or sleepy throughout the day? These are some of the signs of sleep apnea. Talk to your primary care or sleep physician about a sleep study, and find out why sleep apnea is a serious health issue and the role it plays in other medical conditions. If you've been diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea, an oral appliance may be a good treatment option. We feature the ProSomnus MicrO2 device, a metal-free, less-bulky device that can be custom-fabricated for you in as little time as one week. Give our office a call to find out if an oral sleep appliance is right for you.
