What is a Dental Appliance?
We must do more than brush and floss to good oral health. For those of us who participate in sports and athletic activities or who clench or grind our teeth, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures. They can also support general, whole-body health.
Dental appliances we offer at Alinea Dental include mouth guards for sleep and sports, and are used to help protect the health of your oral cavity.
Custom-Fitted Sports Guards
If you get hit in the mouth, teeth or face while playing sports, a custom-fitted mouth guard can provide a barrier that acts as a cushion between your teeth and your mouth's soft tissue to protect your smile.
These dental appliances are made specifically for your mouth and made to protect the face, jaw, head and teeth from injury while you focus on the action on the ice, rink or court.
Custom-Fitted Night Guards
Do you grind your teeth during sleep? People who do so sometimes end up with chipped or fractured teeth, tooth wear, jaw pain, headaches, and more due to the stress on their jaw.
A mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage, keep you from clenching and offer some pain relief to help you get a good night's sleep — and save costs on repairs to teeth in the future.
