Oral Cancer Screening
OralID® is an adjunctive screening device that uses fluorescence technology to aid clinicians in visualization of oral abnormalities. It is easy to use and non-threatening to patients. Dentists and hygienists can use OralID to increase the efficacy of oral exams without incurring additional per-patient costs. One needs only to wipe it down between uses with a disinfecting wipe.* OralID is battery operated, which means it can be used in multiple operatories.
Custom mouth guards are an excellent way to protect your teeth while playing sports. Unlike uncomfortable, bulky traditional boil and bite guards, our customized mouth guards offer a comfortable fit and superior protection. The American Dental Association estimates that over 2 million teeth are knocked out from sports related trauma, so our mouth guards can prevent serious injury and save you a lot of pain.
- Reduces the risk of concussion from lower jaw impacts
- Protects teeth from being knocked out or fractured
- Provides a comfortable fit allowing for natural breathing and speaking
- Prevents jaw fractures by acting as a cushion between upper and lower jaw
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ or TMD) cause tenderness and pain in your jaw, face, and head and neck. These disorders occur as a result of problems with the temporomandibular joint, which is the hinge joint on each side of your head in front of your ears that connects the lower jawbone to your skull.
Possible causes of the disorder are:
- Injury to the jaw, the joint or muscles of the head and neck such as from a heavy blow or whiplash
- Grinding or clenching your teeth
- Dislocation of the ball and socket
- Arthritis in the TMJ
- Chronic inflammation of the head and neck muscles
In some cases, you may experience chronic headaches and migraines by involuntary night-time teeth clenching. A night guard is a small, transparent device that is worn over your two front teeth while you sleep to prevent contact between the canines and molars. Night guards also protect your teeth from chronic wear and fractures. Continual wearing away of the tooth enamel can expose the sensitive inner layer of the tooth called the dentin. Severe wear can even result in changes in how the teeth naturally fit together. Certain causes may also affect your bite, which in turn may require corrective dental treatment. We can improve your bite by balancing the surfaces of your teeth, replacing missing teeth or replacing fillings or crowns.
MAINTAINING A STABLE BITE IS ESSENTIAL TO YOUR ORAL HEALTH AND ENSURES THAT YOUR TEETH WILL COME IN CONTACT IN THE MOST PAIN-FREE MANNER POSSIBLE.
