At Sudbury Dental Group, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect oral health and overall wellbeing for our Sudbury patients.
What is a Dental Appliance?
While brushing and flossing are a good start to maintain excellent oral health, we need to do even more. Those of us who play sports, who snore or clench or grind our teeth need to preserve and protect our oral structures. A dental appliance can help us do this.
Dental appliances offered at Sudbury Dental Group – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – can help improve and protect the health of our oral cavity, and our entire bodies.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can keep you from getting a good night's rest and negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
For patients who snore, throat tissues can relax and cause the airway to restrict.
As oxygen is forced past the airway, this creates the sound of snoring. In patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues over-relax and block the airway. The brain then wakes them up to breathe.
At Sudbury Dental Group, we provide custom-fitted oral appliances to shift the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway.
This helps improve your airflow and prevents you from waking throughout the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
Our custom-made mouth guards fit over your teeth and protect them from damage.
If you take a hit in the mouth during a sports activity, a mouth guard acts as a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile.
Do you grind your teeth during sleep? A mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard will also help keep you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
