Research has demonstrated that dental injuries suffered in contact sports can be reduced by a significant amount by simply using properly-fitted sports guards. At TOOTHDOCS, we are enthusiastic about any steps that can be taken to reduce and prevent tooth and mouth injuries. If you or your children are involved in any type of contact sports or activities, it is absolutely worth the investment of your time and money to obtain sports guards to protect the beauty of your smile. A traumatic blow received in a quick moment can alter your oral health and your smile in a dramatic way. This is not an issue to ignore.
While the easy thing to do is pick up a one-size-fits-all sports guard at your local drug store, this is not the most effective course of action, especially since these guards will often not fit comfortably in your mouth. It is worth the time to find a custom-fit mouth guard for you or your child.
Set up an appointment with our office and let us show you the options we can present in the way of sports mouthguards. When it comes to protecting the oral health and wellbeing of you and your family, we believe it is worth an extra investment. If you live in the New York, NY area, contact our office today!
Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD)
Snoring is a common issue that can affect the snorer and their family for years. Not only are there the obvious unpleasant sounds that annoy and disrupt sleep, but people who snore are often affected in other areas of their health as well. Energy levels, lifestyle and productivity can seriously be impacted in the life of someone who snores.
At TOOTHDOCS, we are here to help! The use of the mandibular advancement device is a great solution for many snorers. This device looks similar to a mouthguard and gently pushes the jaw and tongue forward while the patient is sleeping. The upper airway is expanded enough to reduce any air resistance that may lead to snoring. If you live in the New York, NY area and would like more information on how the mandibular advancement device can benefit you, call us today!
Do you have a difficult time sleeping through the night? Do you wake up in the middle of the night or have a tendency to grind your teeth? If so, a night guard may be the perfect solution to help you get a good night’s sleep. Teeth grinding, otherwise known as bruxism, could severely damage your teeth. It is a hard habit to stop, especially when you are sleeping. That is where we come in! We examine your mouth and create a custom-made night guard that will prevent you from grinding your teeth during the night. In addition, a night guard could also help those who suffer from sleep apnea.
Skipping out on a good night’s sleep could have serious negative effects on your overall health. Get the rest you need by contacting our office today! If you live in the Roslyn, NY area, we can go over all the options we provide and help you determine which one would benefit you the most.
