Sportsguards & Nightguards
Our custom-fitted sportsguards can help protect you or your child’s teeth while you’re having fun. Sports-related dental injuries are very common, that’s why it’s crucial to wear a mouthguard while participating in contact sports.
If you’re suffering from bruxism (teeth grinding), we offer thick, durable nightguards to wear while you sleep. Nightguards create a barrier between the upper and lower jaw to absorb impact and prevent damage to the teeth.
Our oral appliances can help combat symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. The TMJs are the joints that connect the jaw to the skull and allow the jaw to move up and down and side to side. Our handcrafted TMJ appliances hold the lower jaw in a comfortable position to help alleviate pressure on the jaw joints, allow them to heal, and reduce inflammation. Common symptoms of TMD include:
- Chronic Headaches
- Discomfort when Biting or Chewing
- Pain when Opening & Closing Mouth
- Popping or Locked Jaw
- Soreness of Facial Muscles
- Teeth Grinding
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you have obstructive sleep apnea and the CPAP machine isn’t working for you, our custom sleep appliances may be able to help you get the good night’s sleep you deserve. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when the soft tissues in the back of your throat collapse and obstruct your natural breathing pattern. Our sleep appliances reposition the jaw to ensure that your airway stays open while you sleep.
