What Are Oral Appliances?

Oral appliances or mouth guards play an integral part in treating sleep apnea and snoring and protecting your teeth, gums, and jaw if you or someone in your family play a high-impact sport or experience bruxism at night. At Dr. Matrullo & Associates, our dental professionals concentrate on producing custom-fit oral appliances to help sleep apnea patients sleep better and protect athletes from potential damage. Compared to generic mouth guards bought at the store, customized mouth guards from our expert team are crafted and adjusted for you, making them even more comfortable and effective. Our Cranston, RI team is proud to offer this simple, comfortable, and reliable support that will help you achieve better health and well-being. Contact us for more information about custom oral appliances.

What should I Expect from Oral Appliances?

To customize your oral appliance, our team will take a collection of digital or physical dental impressions. Your impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once completed and delivered back to our practice, you will come back to our office to have your guard fitted. Our staff will ensure that your guard fits properly and feels comfortable, whether you need it for sports or to sleep. To treat sleep apnea, this custom-made device fits in your mouth at night and gently places the jaw into a forward position to continue to keep your airway open.

Genuine compassion, true expertise & professionalism has been my consistent experience for over 3 decades w/ Dr. Joe & his entire team. I’m very sincere when I share, they are truly the absolute BEST! Not once, not twice, not three times, etc., but absolutely, each & every time I’ve needed them for 30+ years, I’ve been accommodated & treated w/ nothing less than smiles, comfort, relief, resolution, & true compassion. Rhonda (Dr. Joe’s right hand medical assistant) & Dr. Joe have a combined & amazing way (that I don’t think they are consciously aware of), but of talking you thru & comforting you as they proceed w/ literally… Yikes!! Yes! A freaking surgical root/nerve involved dental procedure. Besides, the initial numbing needle (even that was minimal), Dr. Joe speaks to you every step of the way in a soothing, almost meditative voice w/ reassurance you are fine, telling you exactly what he’s doing, what you’ll feel (i.e. “pressure, but not sharp pain, & if you do, he & Rhonda are laser focused, watching you, attuned & listening). Rhonda is always at your side providing reassurance w/ a gentle touch of pressure on your shoulder to let you know she’s there & focused. She’s genuinely kind and admirable. Michelle (whom I personally believe, is the front office expert & true matriarch of the entire practice) w/ her expertise, warmth, & welcome is always a pleasure. Michele has superior insurance processing skills, & if you need her, she’s gotcha. If you feel horrible upon arrival, I promise she’ll make you feel better. I most recently, experienced horrific mouth/tooth pain, & thought I might have to cancel an upcoming, long overdue & previously paid in full vacation abroad. From the time I called Dr. Joe’s Office, until I had complete relief & total resolution, it was less than 2.5 hours (including my 45 minute commute to Dr. Joe’s office because I currently live on the CT line, but I’d never consider seeing anyone else). This particular day happened to be a half day for Dr. Joe & team. The office literally worked thru lunch time, & while I know they won’t admit it, I know they stayed late for me w/ no gripes whatsoever, no frowns, & from start to finish, nothing but genuine smiles, & compassion. I’m beyond grateful, & I feel so fortunate. If you don’t currently experience the same amazing care from your dental provider, I highly encourage you to reach out to Matrullo & Associates. With so much gratitude to Michele, Rhonda, & Dr. Joe, Deb Montanaro

Dr Matrullo has been my dentist of choice for years. The staff is friendly and professional. Dr Matrullo is a very busy man but when I need help he sees me asap. They are incredibly fast and make sure to match color on any fillings that are visible.
