At Amberwood Dental Centre in Newmarket, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining good oral health involves more than just brushing and flossing. For those of us who play sports, who clench or grind our teeth or who snore at night, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, and the health of our whole bodies.
Dental appliances offered at Amberwood Dental Centre – such as 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 cause disruptions to your sleep and negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
When you snore, your relaxed throat tissues cause the airway to restrict, creating the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced past. For patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues over-relax and obstruct the airway, forcing the brain to wake them up from their sleep to breathe.
At Amberwood Dental Centre, we provide custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve the flow of breath and prevents you from waking up throughout the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
At Amberwood Dental Centre, we offer custom-made mouth guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
If you get hit in the mouth while playing sports, 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 when sleeping, a mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. Mouth guards also help prevent you from clenching your jaw and provides pain relief.
