Protect Your Oral Health
Maintaining good oral health is more than just brushing and flossing every day. For those of us who play sports, who clench or grind our teeth, or who snore, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, and the health of our whole bodies.
The dental appliances offered at Fort Garry Dental Centre – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help protect the health and longevity of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can disrupt your sleep and negatively impact your mental and physical well-being.
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 Fort Garry Dental Centre, we provide 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 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.
If you grind your teeth while sleeping, a mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard will also help you prevent clenching, relieving you of jaw pain and potential bite alignment issues.
