With custom-fitted dental appliances, our dentists in Pembroke can help improve and protect your oral health and overall well-being.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain excellent oral health, we need to go above and beyond brushing and flossing. For those of us who play sports, who snore or who grind or clench our teeth, dental appliances can help to preserve and protect our oral structures, along with the health of our entire bodies.
Your dentist at Dr. James Gallant Dentistry may recommend a dental appliance such as a mouth guard or sleep apnea device to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can do more damage than disrupt your rest; they can also negatively impact your overall health and well-being.
In patients who snore, their throat tissues over-relax and obstruct the airway, triggering the brain to wake them, so they can breathe.
At Dr. James Gallant Dentistry, we offer custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway.
This helps improve your airflow 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 are 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.
