Custom-fitted dental appliances can help improve and protect your oral health and overall well-being. Our dentists in Moose Jaw can determine which option is right for you.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain excellent oral health, we need to do more than merely brush and floss. Those of us who play sports, who snore or clench or grind our teeth may require dental appliances to help preserve and protect our oral structures.
Aspen Dental offers dental appliances such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity, and your general health.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can disrupt your sleep and have a negative impact on your general health and well-being,
In patients who snore, their throat tissues relax and cause the airway to restrict, triggering the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced through. For patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues relax excessively and obstruct the airway, which forces the airway to wake them up to breathe.
At Aspen Dental, we offer custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve your flow of breath and prevents you from waking up throughout the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
If you get hit in the mouth during a sports activity, a mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile.
If 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 prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
