Retainers are designed to maintain your smile by preserving tooth position. These clear, thin, custom-made removable devices are recommended after completing orthodontic treatment, or for patients that feel their teeth are “shifting” or changing position.
Nightguards and Dayguards
These clear, thin, custom-made removable devices may be prescribed and designed for patients that experience negative effects from nighttime teeth clenching or grinding. If you experience tooth, jaw, or facial muscle pain, or if you notice increased wear and tear on your teeth, please ask Dr. Cirac if a nightguard or dayguard may be right for you.
Anti-snoring, Obstructive Sleep Apnea Appliance
Custom-made, removable devices may be prescribed for our patients to alleviate the symptoms of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). These anti-snoring and sleep apnea appliances are designed to advance the lower jaw, and open the bite, helping to promote a deeper, more restful sleep.
The National Youth Sports Association estimates that more than 5 million teeth are knocked out each year during sporting activities. A custom-made mouthguard is essential for oral injury prevention while engaging in contact and non-contact sports. Each mouthguard Dr. Cirac designs is properly fitted and adjusted to maximize protection benefits. Athletic guards are available in a variety of thicknesses, colors, and customizations.
