At our Delta dental office, our dentist can fit you for custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain good oral health, we need to do more than follow a regular brushing and flossing routine. Those of us who clench or grind our teeth, snore, or play sports may want to consider wearing dental appliances that can help preserve and protect our oral structures, and the health of our entire bodies.
At Delta Dental Offices, we offer dental appliances such as sleep apnea devices and mouth guards to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Did you know that sleep disorders can not only disrupt your sleep, but also severely impact your overall health and wellbeing?
In patients who snore, their throat tissues relax and cause the airway to become blocked, producing the sound we all recognize as snoring as oxygen is forced past. For patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues relax more than they should and obstruct the airway, prompting the brain to wake them up so they can breathe.
At Delta Dental Offices, we offer custom-fitted oral appliances to shift the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improves your oxygen flow and keeps you from waking up during the night. This leads to a more restful night's sleep - and a healthier quality of life - for you.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
Custom-made mouth guards fit over your teeth and protect them from damage.
If you happen to take a hit to the mouth while playing sports, a mouth guard acts as a barrier between the soft tissue of your mouth and your teeth to protect your smile.
Do you clench your jaw while you sleep? A mouth guard can provide some pain relief. If teeth grinding is your issue, a mouth guard helps protect your teeth from damage or injury.
