About Night Guards@headingTag>
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, affects over 10 – 15% of adults and can cause jaw pain, headaches, tooth pain, swelling, and other symptoms. Over time, teeth grinding can damage the teeth and cause expensive dental problems. High-quality, custom night guards can be made at a dental laboratory from impressions taken at Cosmetic Dental Studios in Midtown Manhattan with cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman. A custom-made night guard helps patients who grind their teeth or clench their jaw while sleeping so they can sleep better while protecting their teeth and jaw.
"Dr Veytsman and her assistant Jessica are the absolute best ! I have been a patient of hers for about 3 years , and she always delivers consistent and amazing results and her demeanor is always welcoming .She makes her patients feel super comfortable, as well as being a competent and trustworthy dentist ! I started my Invisalign treatment in Jan 2017 and I qualified for an express case. Fast forward to September 2017 and I have a beautiful straight and white smile! I love that Dr. veytsman gave me options in order to correct a bite issue that I had, and I chose to go with Invisalign. I love my results and I'm so happy I did it. Look no further when searching for a dentist, Dr Veytsman and her staff are phenomenal ! No other dentist compares in my book!"- M.E. / Yelp / Sep 11, 2017
"Veneers finally!!!!! - I had been thinking about doing veneers literally since I was a teenager. My smile has always made me so self conscious. My teeth were super stained from braces and small. Even though I spent a good 6 years in braces my smile still looked terrible. I'm so glad I found this doctor and her staff. I cannot say enough good things about this office. I found the doctor to be highly compassionate and..."- S. / RealSelf / Sep 23, 2017

"A friend recommended me to Dr. Veytsman and it's been the best recommendation I have ever gotten! I have had terrible fear of dentists/ dental work/ dental offices since bad experiences as a kid, but at the same time I really wanted to maintain gorgeous teeth. I basically swapped dentists for years, hoping to find anyone I could bear to visit. Then I found Dr. Veytsman. Going to see Dr. Veytsman is a pleasure and she is hands down the best dentist I have ever countered by a very wide margin. What she does also doesn't hurt, she is incredibly gentle with her work. She is also fun, kind, understanding and such a joy to just be around. I have recommended her to everyone I know; my husband is a huge fan too:-)"- A.D. / Facebook / Sep 05, 2017
What to Expect@headingTag>
Once the patient decides to get a night guard, they will schedule an appointment at Cosmetic Dental Studios to have impressions of the upper and lower teeth made. The impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fit night guard will be crafted for the patient. Once the night guard is returned to Cosmetic Dental Studios, the patient will come in to have their night guard fitted by Dr. Veytsman.
The night guard can last for several years with proper home care. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Depending on the type of material used when making the mouth guard, Dr. Veytsman will give the patient more specific care instructions. Patients should bring their night guard to all future dental appointments at Cosmetic Dental Studios so Dr. Veytsman can check for general wear and decide when it needs to be replaced.
Compared to over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards are more expensive, but some, or all, of the cost may be covered by the patient’s dental insurance if it is medically necessary. A night guard custom fit by Dr. Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios can be an investment, but they are more comfortable and last longer than store bought night guards.
