What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining your oral health consists of more than brushing and flossing. For those who play sports, clench or grind their teeth, or snore, dental appliances can help preserve and protect oral structures and overall bodily health.
Dental appliances offered at Mount Pearl Dental – such as mouth guards and snoring appliances – are used to help protect the health of your oral cavity.
Your sleep can be disrupted by snoring, which could lead to a negative impact on your overall health and wellbeing.
When patients snore, their relaxed throat tissues cause the airway to restrict, creating the familiar sound of snoring as oxygen is forced past.
At Mount Pearl Dental, we offer our patients custom-fitted oral appliances to reposition the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve the flow of your breathing, which can help prevent snoring and lead to a more peaceful night's sleep.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
Your teeth can be protected from damage with our custom-made mouth guards.
If your mouth is hit during sports or another physical activity, a mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and your mouth's soft tissues to protect your smile.
If you grind your teeth in your sleep, a mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage. If you tend to clench your jaw, a mouth guard can also help prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
