At All Smiles Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain excellent oral health, we need to do more than simply brush and floss. Many of us clench or grind our teeth, snore, or play sports. Dental appliances can help protect and preserve our oral structures, in addition to our overall physical health.
A mouth guard or sleep apnea device provided by All Smiles Dental Centre can help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can easily disrupt your sleep and have a negative impact on your overall health and wellbeing.
For patients who snore, their throat tissues relax, causing the airway to become blocked and creating the sound we know as snoring when oxygen is forced past. In patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues over-relax and block the airway, prompting the brain to wake them up to breathe.
At All Smiles Dental Centre, we provide custom-fitted oral appliances to shift the lower jaw and tongue muscles to ensure the airway is clear. This helps improve airflow and keeps you from waking during the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards to protect your teeth.
A mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile, in case you get in the mouth while playing sports.
Do 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 keep you from clenching and provide some relief from headaches and pain in your jaw.
