Hard Night Guards
Some patients suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (commonly referred to as TMD) where the joint in your jaws are inflamed from clenching or grinding your teeth. A custom bite splint is a guard that can be fabricated for you to wear and put your joints back in the proper anatomic location while easing the muscles in your jaw and face. These custom bite splints can be worn at night (hence known as a hard night guard) to greatly reduce the amount of pain felt in your jaws.
Getting a great night sleep is optimal for both you and your partner. If snoring is an issue keeping someone up at home, a custom appliance to reduce snoring may be just what you need. Inquire about our Silent Nite® appliances to see if this treatment is ideal for you!
Sleep Disorder Appliances
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a serious condition due to an upper airway collapse that if left untreated can lead to a negative cardiovascular event and can even be fatal. Proper diagnosis and treatment planning is paramount to managing this medical condition. If you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, you may benefit from a custom made sleep disorder appliance. Many custom options exist that can clear your airway and provide you with a healthier sleep that may be more comfortable than a traditional CPAP device. Our appliances are custom made for you depending on your sleep diagnosis and needs. Inquire about our TAP® 3 and SomnoDent® Appliances to see if we can help manage your OSA.
