PULASKI, NY – Pulaski Health Center has purchased a new occlusal guard machine for its dental department.
The new machine will allow dental staff to customize occlusal guards while you wait.
The state of the art machine saves patients the time and expense of having to have these guards fabricated by an offsite laboratory, while providing the same level of quality.
Occlusal guards can help to alleviate jaw soreness due to nighttime grinding and clenching of teeth.
Both grinding and clenching can cause damage by fracturing and wearing down teeth.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe are delighted to offer this new service to our dental patients. Grinding and clenching of teeth are common issues and this new service offers a convenient fix,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â according to Melissa Tyler, D.D.S., Pulaski Health CenterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s dental director.
Dental patients do not need a referral to be evaluated for an occlusal guard.
They may call the Pulaski Health Center Dental Department directly at (315) 298-6815 for an evaluation and any other routine dental services.
Office hours are Monday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Fridays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Incorporated in 1969 as Northern Oswego County Health Services, the facility operates as Pulaski Health Center and school-based health centers in the APW, Pulaski, and Sandy Creek school districts.
