The Vancouver dentists at Broadway Station Dental Centre offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect the oral health and overall wellbeing of our patients.
What are Dental Appliances?
Maintaining good oral health often requires 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 as a consequence promote our overall bodily health
Dental appliances offered at Broadway Station Dental Centre – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can disrupt your sleep 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 Broadway Station 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 mouthguards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
Everyone has a plan until they get hit in the face - whether it's an errant puck or a pugilist's glove, sports present many risks for our teeth. Our custom-fit mouthguards aim at a comfortable solution to protect your teeth from impacts.
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.
