At Orchard Park Dental & Implant Center in Kelowna, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining excellent oral health is about more than brushing and flossing. For those of us who play sports, who clench or grind our teeth while sleeping or who snore, dental appliances can help safeguard our oral structures, and protect the health of our whole bodies.
Dental appliances offered at Orchard Park Dental & Implant Center – including mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help protect and preserve the health of your oral cavity.
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.
We strongly recommend sports mouth guards for patients who play any sports 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 helps you stay safe by providing a barrier between the soft tissue of your mouth and your teeth.
