Custom-fitted dental appliances can help improve and protect your oral health and overall well-being. Ask your dentist at Chapman Mills Dental about the best option based on your condition.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain excellent oral health, we need to do more than just brush and floss. Those of us who play sports, who snore or clench or grind our teeth can benefit from wearing dental appliances.
These can help preserve and protect our oral structures, along with the health of our entire bodies.
Dental appliances offered at Chapman Mills Dental — including mouth guards and sleep apnea devices — are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can not only disrupt your sleep but negatively impact your overall health and well-being.
In patients who snore, their airways restrict when their throat tissues relax. This produces the sound we all recognize as snoring as oxygen is forced through. For patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues over-relax and block the airway, prompting them to wake up to breathe.
At Chapman Mills Dental, you'll find custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to pen the airway. This helps improve your airflow and prevents you from waking up during the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards which 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.
