One person’s snoring can mean the entire family’s discomfort. Research shows that 37 million Americans snore when sleeping which leads to sleepless nights for family members, potentially embarrassing episodes when falling asleep on an airplane or in a theater, and can lead to severe health problems for those who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA.)
Snoring occurs when the airway narrows or is partly blocked during sleep, due to nasal congestion, floppy tissue, enlarged tonsils, or depressing effects from alcohol. A Snore Guard is an appliance that fits over your teeth and positions your jaw forward to decrease your snoring. It is a perfect solution for patient's who snore but do not have OSA or for patients who do have OSA an cannot tolerate a CPAP machine.

"Start Smiling Dental was very flexible with my schedule. They made sure to followed up with me each time an opening was available for a teeth cleaning. The staff was very gentle and welcoming."- S.D. / Google / Nov 13, 2020
"I enjoyed the practice, nice place, great dentist and hygienist. My only problem with them is they looked into my insurance before my appointment and quoted me a certain price. When I went to check out my cost was double. They said they assumed I had the premium dental insurance. Not a big deal, the treatment I received was great, just a little disappointed that they assumed anything. To pay double makes a big difference."- H.S. / Google / Nov 12, 2020
"First - Start Smiling Dentistry (Drs. Sayeg and Hahn) took over the practice of Dr. Paul Isler, who was my dentist for more than 40 years until he retired several months ago. My first experience with Start Smiling was having a painful rear molar with a long-ago crown extracted- the procedure was well done and healed quickly. This afternoon I visited Start Smiling Dental for a routine 3x/year dental hygiene. My hygienist, who I met for the first time, was Tanya - she did a careful and thorough cleaning of my 87-year-old teeth. So far I couldn't be more pleased with this practice and I highly recommend them"- M.H. / Google / Oct 21, 2020

What is a SNORE GUARD
A Snore Guard is an appliance that fits over your teeth and positions your jaw forward in order to keep your airway open. We use different types of appliances to fit your specific needs and will periodically adjust your appliance to maximize your comfort and keep you from snoring.
What to Expect
To create your Snore Guard, we will first schedule a consultation with you and Dr. Sayeg to discuss your needs and to evaluate which appliance will suit you best.
We will then take impressions of your mouth and create a high-quality customized Snore Guard. You will need a second appointment to fit the appliance and go over any additional instructions. We include 2 years of free adjustments and band changes with every appliance. We also guarantee that the appliance will stop your snoring, or your fee will be refunded.
Cost & Insurance
Snore Guards may be covered by your medical insurance depending on your healthcare benefits. Most coverage requires a Sleep Study and diagnosis of Sleep Apnea. The cost of treatment can vary depending on your personal needs. We will be happy to see you for a free consultation to discuss your needs for snoring treatment.
Our Start Smiling Dental Team will be happy to help you find out if you have benefits and assist you in filing your claim. As always, payment plan options are available and our team will help you find a way to afford the treatment you need to get a better night's sleep!
