Therapeutica Ultimate Sleeping Pillow
|"I remember as a kid having my dad tell me that I had bad breath and I should go and brush my teeth. Well, I had just come from brushing my teeth! I did not have many complaints about my breath as the years went by, until I had kids--and they are pretty honest.|
I had numerous occasions where I was reading a book to one of my kids and they told me, 'Dad, your breath stinks.' That is when I started looking for rinses that really had an all-day effect on bad breath and finally came upon Smart Mouth rinse, which used to be called Tri-Oral rinse. My kids stopped complaining of my breath and I became aware of their bad breath as my odor level was now below theirs!
I use Smart Mouth rinse once a day and feel confident when I talk to others. I am so glad I have found a solution to a problem that I could not solve with brushing, and other rinses or toothpastes.
This rinse is not a gimmick; it really works!"
This pillow was recommended over all other pillows for those who suffer from neck pain, TMD related jaw pain and snoring. It is the best design for a pillow that I have seen. We measure a person's shoulder size to determine which pillow size fits them correctly. It is excellent for both back sleeping and side sleeping, the only positions for healthy sleep.

TheraMints can be an important part of daily oral hygiene for many patients. Great-tasting mints with 100% xylitol, a natural sugar substitute that stimulates saliva flow to fight the harmful effects of dry mouth.
Up until age 3, combating the finger habit is up to you, the parent. We are here for any help or advice you may need. After age 3, Dr. Jeff will have a talk with your child to see if they are ready to stop a finger or pacifier habit. If they are ready to give up the habit we will have good success. If not, the most helpful reminder for your child is a product called "Mavala Stop!" It is a clear fingernail polish with a very bitter taste. Remember, this won't stop finger sucking, it will just remind your child when they put a finger in their mouth without thinking about it. There was a finger habit book called "My Thumb and I" which is excellent for ages 5+ which may be found used on the internet.
If you have gingivitis, gum disease, receding gums and root exposure, heavy tartar buildup or tooth decay, you need a good rechargeable toothbrush. These brushes are profoundly better at cleaning and massaging your teeth and gums, and if you floss once a day your dental cleanings will forever be a pleasure, not a nightmare and your dental health will be profoundly improved. We would like all our patients to use a good rechargeable brush so we price ours reasonably. Pick one up at our office or a local store. If you would like to know which is best for you we would be happy to make a recommendation. We often have promotional rebates in the office for units purchased here. You can't go wrong with either one of these brushes! They also make great Christmas gifts!
1. Sonicare Professional FlexCare+ rechargeable toothbrush kit. If you have gum recession and root exposure, we recommend only the Sonicare. Our office meticulously tracks any areas of gum recession at each dental check up and cleaning. We have found that when we switch a patient from hand brushing or any other mechanical brush we see a decrease in gum recession and root exposure in almost every patient in the order of 1 to 2 mm improvement over the course of 12 to 24 months. We know of no clinical studies verifying this, we just see it happen consistently. If you have had surgical gum grafting we also recommend the Sonicare after your healing period is complete. http://sonicare.com/default.asp
2. Oral-B Professional Care 8850 rechargeable toothbrush kit. This is a great kit for a family as it is the only electric toothbrush kit that comes with 2 hand held motors. We recommend this brush when there more than one bathroom will be using the electric brush, such as a parent's bathroom and kid's bathroom. One charging base comes with the kit to charge both hand motors which require charging once every 2-3 weeks. Great for mom and dad and the kids.
3. Oral-B Triumph Professional Care 9950 rechargeable toothbrush kit. This kit comes with a wireless "Smart Guide" display that tells you if you are applying too much pressure with your brush and gives you a visible timer for brushing. If you like some "bells an whistles" this brush is really cool and gets the job done!
