Our Grande Prairie dentists at Prairie Mall Dental Clinic offer a selection of custom-fitted dental appliances to protect and support your oral health.
What is a Dental Appliance?
More than just blushing and flossing are needed to maintain excellent oral health. For those of us who snore, are active in sports or clench or grind our teeth as we sleep, dental appliances can help protect our teeth from impact and support our oral health.
At Prairie Mall Dental Clinic, we offer dental appliances including sleep apnea devices and mouth guards to help improve and protect your oral cavity's health.
We recommend sports mouth guards for patients who participate in any sports activity where they risk their mouth, teeth or jaw coming into contact with objects or people.
If you happen to take a hit to the mouth while playing sports, a custom-made mouth guard keeps you in the game by providing a barrier between the soft tissue of your mouth and your teeth to protect your smile from impact.
Do you grind your teeth during sleep? A mouth guard can help protect your upper and lower teeth from damage.
If your jaw clenches due to TMD, a mouth guard will also help prevent the clenching and alleviate some pain.
Your dentist can fit you with a custom-made night guard that will act as a buffer between your teeth and jaws.
