At Valley Centre Dental Clinic in Whitecourt, 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 our oral health, we must do more than brush and floss. For those of us who snore, play sports, or clench or grind our teeth, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, and the health of our whole bodies.
Dental appliances offered at Valley Centre Dental Clinic – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can disturb your sleep and have a negative impact on your overall health and wellbeing.
For patients who snore, their relaxed throat tissues cause the airway to narrow, creating the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced past. Sleep apnea is a chronic condition. Its symptoms include shallow breathing, or pauses in breathing during sleep.
At Valley Centre Dental Clinic, we offer custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway.
This helps increase the oxygen flowing through your airway and prevents you from waking up throughout the night. These appliances can help relieve symptoms of sleep apnea and snoring.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards that are worn over your teeth to protect them from damage.
If you get hit in the mouth during a sports activity, a mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your teeth from injury.
If 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 offer some pain relief.
