Silent Nite® sl Snore Guard
Snoring can be a real problem, not only for the person who snores but also for the partner and other family members who live with the snorer. However, there is a dentist-prescribed solution for a more restful night’s sleep: Silent Nite® sl. This affordable device is flexible, thin and comfortable for your patients, and it exhibits documented clinical success in mitigating or even preventing the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and sleep apnea.
Silent Nite® sl positions the lower jaw forward using special Side-Link connectors that are attached to upper and lower trays. These trays are comprised of a soft inner layer with a hard outer layer that is durable and BPA-free. The new, improved connectors are stronger than those found on the original Silent Nite and are easily interchangeable by the patient. This intraoral appliance is indicated for patients with a minimum of eight teeth per jaw and a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less.
“The snore guard can stop the snoring, treat minor sleep apnea, and let you and your partner get the sleep you need”.
Grinding Guard (aka Occlusal Guard, Night Guard, Bruxing Guard)
The tires on your car, if properly balanced, will have a longer tread life. Likewise, when your bite is even, forces are dispersed uniformly, and that means a healthier future for your teeth.
Grinding guards are designed to minimize excessive tooth wear associated with clenching, grinding, during sleep, and to prevent or treat the discomfort associated with TMJ (temporal mandibular joint dysfunction).
Some of the symptoms of Occlusal Disease are headaches, neck, shoulder, and jaw pain, sensitivity to cold drinks, unnatural wear of teeth, and fractured teeth and fillings. It is highly recommended for those who have crowns, bridges and/or dentures, to offset the damage of this often-subconscious-habit that occurs during sleep.
Grinding guards are clear, thin, removable splints, custom-made to fit over your upper or lower teeth as you sleep. They are also available in green, pink and blue. They are ISO-certified, BPA-free, and non-allergenic.
The role of the dentist in trauma prevention is patient education, diagnosis, and design of custom sports guards. These guards are comfortable, flexible, and distribute the impact of an accidental blow to the mouth during athletic events.
Children and adults are participating more often in events where the probability of trauma is apparent. Attendance at health clubs and gymnasiums is on the rise. Along with the increase in sports participation comes an increase in orofacial injuries.
The pressure laminated sports guard continues to be the sports guard of choice and acceptance for athletes of all levels. The precise fit lends to an increased compliance and reduction of injuries.
