Dr. Alan J. White is happy to help you with your snoring habits by providing you with a snore guard in Staunton, Virginia.
Snoring generally results in your oral muscles collapsing and blocking your air ways while you sleep. When you snore, the air is trying to get through the small passage way in your throat but it is struggling to get through. The snore guard your dentist currently offers is an appliance that keeps your muscles from collapsing and keeps your airways open. This is a very comfortable and portable device that fits snug in your mouth. We make these guards so they are customized for your specific situation and so they can also provide the most success for you personally.
This product is very beneficial because it allows you to breathe, it gives your entire body the oxygen it needs to survive, and it gives you sleep-filled nights. We are happy to give you this option to help you wake up refreshed in the morning and also give you the energy and oxygen your body needs to operate properly throughout the day.
To benefit from our successful and convenient snore guards, call our office today and set up an appointment!
According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, close to 37,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Oral cancer will cause over 8,000 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. The main reason for these grim statistics, is not because oral cancer is hard to diagnose, but because it is diagnosed too late-when it is in its advanced stages. As your dentist, I am dedicating myself to do everything that I possibly can to reduce these alarming oral cancer statistics one patient at a time. That’s why I recently invested in a new, advanced screening device that will enable me and my team to perform a detailed oral exam on our adult patients with far more accuracy than we ever could in the past. The device, which is called Identafi, is about the size of a power tooth brush, and uses three different wavelengths of light to help detect any suspicious areas in the mouth that would be impossible for us to see with our naked eyes. These suspicious areas, upon further evaluation, are usually benign, but I think you’ll agree that it’s always better to be safe than sorry. During your next hygiene examine will be performing a thorough Identafi examination and we will gladly answer any and all questions. If it has been a while since your last appointment, I recommend that you schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.
