At Dr. M. Jawanda Dentistry in Quesnel, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining impeccable oral health entails more than just brushing and flossing. For those of us who clench or grind our teeth, snore, or play sports, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, and our overall physical health.
Dental appliances offered at Dr. M. Jawanda Dentistry – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – can help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can interrupt your sleep and have negative consequences for your overall health and wellbeing. Your dentists use a variety of oral appliances that are custom-fitted to help the patient sleep soundly and minimize the effects of snoring and other apnea symptoms.
In patients who snore, their throat tissues relax and cause the airway to restrict, producing the sound we all know as snoring when oxygen is forced past.
For patients with sleep apnea, this chronic condition causes their throat tissues relax so much that the airway becomes blocked, forcing the brain to wake them up to breathe. People with sleep apnea can stop breathing for anywhere between 10 seconds to one minute or more.
At Dr. M. Jawanda Dentistry, we provide custom-fitted oral appliances to help advance the mandible to minimize snoring and open the airway. This helps improve your flow of breath and prevents you from waking up throughout the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards to wear over your teeth to protect them from damage.
A sports mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile.
With proper storage and care, your mouthguard will prevent injuries such as fractured or chipped teeth, and cut gums or lips for many games to come.
Do you grind your teeth as you 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.
Your dentist can fit you for a custom night mouth guard to help protect your teeth during sleep.
