At Sturgeon Creek Dental in Winnipeg, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
Maintaining good oral health is 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 Sturgeon Creek Dental – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
A custom-made dental appliance can protect your smile from damage or pain caused by teeth grinding or sports injuries.
Sleep disorders can make sleep difficult and negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
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 Sturgeon Creek Dental, 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.
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.
