At Access Dental, our Grande Prairie dentists offer custom-made dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
Good oral health maintenance is about more than just brushing and flossing. 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.
Dental appliances offered at Access Dental – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
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 to protect your smile.
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 prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Snoring and sleep apnea are both sleep disorders that have the potential to severely disrupt your sleep, making them very damaging to your overall health.
At Access Dental, we provide custom-fitted snoring and sleep apnea appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles and open the airway.
This helps improve your flow of breath and prevents you from waking up throughout the night.
