I'm actually typing this as my numbness from my filling wears off lol Dr. Reifer and Michal made me feel so comfortable and I was kept up to date on what was happening. Also have to give a special shout-out to Carla who is my go-to when its time to go in for cleanings. I LOVE THIS STAFF! The office is so... nice and homey. I love going there, I always arrive with a smile and leave with an even bigger one. I really can't imagine going to another dentist office. Do yourself a favor, and give this place a try.

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.
What to Expect
Patients can be fitted for their custom mouth guard in less than 20 minutes.

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!
