"I am so happy I went to see Dr. Swift as a fourth consultation for my tetracycline stained teeth. The stains lifted to a nice pretty white in about 2 weeks with the at home whitening system I purchased through her office. My regular dentist plus two cosmetic dentists told me that I could not remove the tetracycline stain from my teeth with bleaching because the stain was so bad. One local dentist even tried to sell me on a 'Smile Lift' in addition to 10 veneers on the top. I'm still in shock that this was so easy!!"- A.R. / Yelp / Apr 30, 2018
"You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well let me try NOT to use a thousand words to express my gratitude of the AMAZING job Dr. Mary Swift & her team did for my smile. Where do I start first? First of all when you first come into the office everyone & I mean everyone greets you with the utmost respect & curtesy. When I met Dr. Swift she was so thrilled to be working on my case that she already had some great ideas on how she wanted to execute getting me the best possible smile imaginable.They gave such great care & dedication in making sure my work was done effectively & efficiently that when I broke one of my temporary teeth (eating banana flavored taffy) they got me in right away to make the repairs. Dr. Swift also sent my permanent teeth back to the lab when it wasn't up to her specifications. My temporary smile looked so good that I almost didn't want to trade it in for the permanent but when I DID I couldn't do anything but cry streams of tears down my face because unlike most people I had never shown my teeth to anyone except close friends & family. The level of work that she did was so impeccable that I now can't even stop smiling. It's an extraordinary transformation from who I once was to who I am today. Getting this dental work done has truly changed my life & I will forever be grateful."- L.F. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2018
"Straightforward & fast working. Easily can got an appointment. Felt very comfortable & when you get inside the office & sit on the dental chair you feel at ease. Will be back for my crown in 2 weeks. I never dread or think of pain when I visit a dentist after my consult & procedure with Dr. Swift. Excellent service"- V.P. / ZocDoc / Jan 03, 2018
Mouth guards are used to protect the teeth from grinding caused by TMJ disorder, as well as to protect cosmetically treated teeth at night. Mouth guards are also ideal for athletes who need comfortable protection during contact sports. Mouth guards can also help athletic performance during non-contact sports by minimizing the production of hormones that can limit strength, endurance, and reaction time, as well as reducing stress. The UA Performance Mouthwear is best for patients over 8 years who do not wear braces.

Mouth Guard FAQs
It may seem odd that a mouth guard can improve athletic performance, but it does. During sports, the body goes into “fight or flight” mode and the teeth clench, which triggers a variety of hormones that diminish performance, reduce airflow, and increase lactic acid production. By relaxing the jaw with a mouth guard, anyone can increase their strength, power, and speed during contact and non-contact sports.
The ArmourBite has been independently studied and peer-reviewed by some of the top universities and research centers in America. These studies found that the ArmourBite Mouthguard can increase strength by 20%, increase oxygen by 29%, reduce lactic acid by 25%, increase reaction time by 12%, reduce the stress hormone cortisol, and reduce impact.
Many people think that mouth guards are only for contact sports, like football and hockey. Under Armour Performance Mouthwear can help athletes in limited contact and no contact sports. One study by Power Pilates founder Dr. Howard Sichel even discovered that an ArmourBite Mouthpiece and help during yoga and pilates!
