What is a Dental Appliance?
A dental appliances is a device that can help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing. At Canada Place Dental in Downtown Edmonton, our general dentists offer custom-fitted mouth guards and snoring devices.
Our Edmonton dentists offer custom-made mouth guards that fit over your teeth to provide a barrier between your teeth and gums to protect them from harm.
A mouth guard can help protect your teeth and gums during sports or any activity where there is a chance something can come into contact with your mouth.
A mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage if you grind during sleep. It may also help prevent you from clenching your jaw and provide some pain relief.
Sleep disorders can disrupt your sleep and negatively impact your health. Snoring devices, available at Canada Place Dental, can help.
For patients who snore, relaxed throat tissues cause the airway to restrict and create the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced past. For patients with sleep apnea, throat tissues over-relax and obstruct the airway forcing the brain to wake them up to breathe.
Our Edmonton dentists provide custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve your flow of breath and prevents you from waking up throughout the night.
