At Souris Family Dental in Weyburn, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain exceptional oral health, we need to do more than brush and floss. Those of us who play sports, clench or grind our teeth or who snore need to preserve and protect our oral structures, in addition to the health of our entire bodies.
We offer dental appliances at Souris Family Dental – including mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – to help protect and improve the health of your oral cavity.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep disorders can not only disrupt your sleep, but also negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
In patients who snore, their relaxed throat tissues block the airway, producing the sound we all know as snoring, as oxygen is forced through.
For patients with sleep apnea, their throat tissues over-relax and obstruct the airway, prompting the brain to wake them to breathe.
At Souris Family Dental, we offer custom-fitted oral appliances to shift the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve your airflow and keeps you from waking up throughout the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
Our custom-made mouth guards fit over your teeth to help protect them from damage.
If you take a hit to the mouth while playing sports, a mouth guard acts as a barrier between the soft tissue of your mouth and your teeth to protect your smile.
If teeth grinding during sleep is your problem, a mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage. Is jaw clenching your issue? A mouth guard will help prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
