At our Wellspring Dental clinics in Deep River and Pembroke, our teams offer custom-fitted dental appliances to assist in protecting and improving your oral health.
What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining good oral health involves more than just properly flossing and brushing your teeth. For those of us who clench and grind our teeth, play sports, or snore, dental appliances are key to preserving and protecting our oral structures from harm.
At our Wellspring Dental clinics, we offer dental appliances from mouth guards to sleep apnea devices in order to help improve and protect your all-important oral health.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can disrupt your sleep and negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
For patients who snore, their 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 to breathe.
At Wellspring Dental Deep River, our dental team provides 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.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
If you are hit in the mouth while participating in sports, a mouth guard provides a protective barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth.
If, at night, you grind your teeth, a mouth guard can help to protect your teeth from being damaged. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard can also help to prevent you bring clenching as well as provide some pain relief.
