At dentalhouse Glen Abbey Dental, our dentists offer custom dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health.
We need to do more than brush or floss to maintain our oral health. Playing sports, snoring, or clenching or grinding our teeth can result in damage to our teeth. Dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, in addition to our overall health.
At dentalhouse Glen Abbey Dental, we offer custom-made dental appliances such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices to help protect and improve the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can have a negative impact on your sleep, and have consequences for your physical health and wellbeing.
For patients who snore, their throat tissues relax and cause the airway to restrict and become blocked. When oxygen is forced past, this creates the sound we all recognize as snoring.
For patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues relax excessively and obstruct the airway. This forces the brain to wake them up to breathe, causing disruptions in sleep and other serious long-term symptoms such as chronic sleepiness, depression, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Custom-fitted oral appliances can move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway, improving your airflow and preventing you from awakening through the night.
Custom-fitted mouth guards fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
A sports mouth guard acts as a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile while you play sports. If you get hit in the mouth, this protective barrier will shield your oral structures from damage.
Do you grind your teeth while you sleep? A night mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard can help quell the clenching and alleviate pain.
