At Southwood Dental Studio in London and Aurora, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
It takes more than just brushing and flossing to maintain excellent oral health. Those of us who play sports, clench or grind our teeth or who snore may find dental appliances helpful in preserving and protecting our oral structures, in addition to our overall physical health.
Dental appliances offered at Southwood Dental Studio – including mouth guards for sports and sleep – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring can disturb your (and others) sleep and have a negative impact your overall health and wellbeing.
In patients who snore, their throat tissues relax and cause the airway to restrict, creating the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced through. For these patients, their throat tissues over-relax and block the airway. This sometimes forces the brain to wake them up so they can breathe.
At Southwood Dental Studio, we offer custom-fitted oral appliances to shift the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve your oxygen flow, prevents you from waking up during the night, and helps silence snoring so you can get a great night's rest and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
The custom-made mouth guards we offer fit over your teeth to safeguard them from damage.
If you take a hit to the mouth while playing sports, a mouth guard protects your smile by acting as a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue in your mouth.
Do you grind your teeth when you sleep? A mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. If clenching your jaw is the issue, a mouth guard can also help provide some pain relief by keeping you from clenching.
