OUR ST. CATHARINES DENTAL OFFICE OFFERS
MOUTH GUARDS/APNEA & TENS THERAPY
Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) is a pain-free muscle stimulation procedure that treats functional diseases of the jaw, like Bruxism (teeth grinding or jaw clenching) by relaxing the affected muscles. TENS therapy is used when making a night-guard to get an impression in a relaxed state. As a result the guard fits correctly.
If you or your child is enrolled in a sports activity, we supply inexpensive custom-made sports guards that actually fit! Protecting your teeth and jaw from impact, our mouth guards act as a cushion, ensuring you have an effective barrier protecting your teeth and guarding against concussions. If you or your children wear braces or other fixed orthodontic appliances, we’ll make sure that your mouth guard fits properly.
Do you find yourself grinding your teeth at night – so much so that it’s keeping your partner up? We have effective night-guards that’ll protect your teeth and jaw while you sleep. Our night-guards are durable, resilient, and comfortable.
It's not just snoring! Apnea is a serious health issue affecting males and females, old and young, thick and thin. Apnea increases your risk of high blood pressure, leading to heart attacks &/or stroke; type II diabetes; acid reflux; day-time drowsiness; even memory loss and impotence.
Many people are prescribed a CPAP machine which forces air into your throat; but, 60% of these patients are non-users after only 1 year. Often, these patients prefer an oral/dental appliance instead which opens the airway during sleep by re-positioning the lower jaw ‘open’ and ‘forward.’
Ask Dr. Struk about this option for you, or someone you know.
