Snoring Appliance

A snoring appliance is an oral appliance that resembles an athletic mouthpiece. Small and flexible, it has no moving parts, masks, hoses, or batteries. Generally made from sterile plastic it is easy to clean with a regular toothbrush.

Custom fit by a dentist in one simple, painless visit. Fit to the patient's teeth to keep the upper and lower jaw in position when the jaw and throat muscles relax during sleep. This keeps the airway open providing restful, quiet sleep.

Night Guards

A night guard is a device worn over the teeth during sleep to protect them from the effects of teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. Bruxism is a common condition that affects millions of people and can cause a number of dental problems, including tooth damage (ground-down teeth), jaw pain, and tension headaches.

Our night guards are custom-fitted to your mouth and is made of a durable and somewhat flexible plastic material. It sits comfortably over the upper or lower teeth and creates a barrier between the upper and lower teeth preventing them from coming into contact with each other. This can help to reduce the amount of wear and tear on the teeth, as well as the pain and discomfort associated with teeth grinding.

Bite Splints

Bite splints (plates) are effective in relieving TMD symptoms.

A bite splint provides an acrylic platform to bite against. Some bite plates move the mandible to a new position.

Generally, splints are worn part-time and for most people night time seems to be the best time to wear them.
