We proudly offer a variety of dental appliances in our New Jersey office. Each appliance targets a different
area of treatment, based on your individual needs. Some of the many appliances we offer include:
is committed to preventive dentistry, so we are always on the alert for symptoms
that could lead to chronic difficulties like temporomandibular joint disorder
(TMD). This is a
common problem that involves the joints used in chewing, swallowing, and talking. TMD can lead to localized
symptoms or seemingly unrelated headaches and earaches. One of the first culprits we look for during regular
examinations is bruxism. Bruxism is the name for forceful grinding and/or clenching of your teeth. Grinding
is usually noisy; clenching is silent. Either can create so much stress on the jaw joints that patients
experience serious and even debilitating muscle spasms and pain, common symptoms of TMD.
Many individuals are unaware that they “brux,” so we look for telltale signs that include:
- worn-down teeth
- sensitive teeth
- chipped or broken teeth
- cracked or loose restorations
- scarring of the tongue and cheeks
Although earlier attempts to cure bruxism have ranged from sound alarms,
electrical stimulation, psychotherapy, hypnosis, and drugs, we can now recommend
simple, effective dental solutions. Some act like a crutch to rest the jaw joints
while others encourage a natural reflex that stops your jaw automatically to protect
your teeth and jaw joints. With all the options available today, there is no reason to
suffer with TMJ / TMD pain.
Snap On Smile
Snap-On Smile is an affordable, non-invasive and completely reversible, cosmetic removable arch that can easily and painlessly
enhance your smile. The Snap-on Smile is a temporary smile design, made out of acrylic, that snaps over your natural teeth.
It can be used for special events, such as weddings or graduations, or it can be used to
“try on” a smile design to see if it works. Or it can be used as a low-cost smile makeover to
cover an imperfect smile while you save up money to get a permanent restoration.
Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Do you snore at night? Sleep apnea, a sleep disorder characterized by pauses
in breathing during sleep, lasts long enough so that one or more breaths are missed, and such episodes occur
repeatedly throughout sleep. Common signs and symptoms include gasping, choking or silences during sleep,
sudden awakening during sleep, loud snoring and daytime sleepiness. Not only can sleep apnea affect your
energy levels throughout your day, but chronic sleep apnea carries potentially dangerous health affects. Learn more.
