What is a Dental Appliance?
We must do more than brush and floss for good oral health. For those who participate in sports and athletic activities or who clench or grind their teeth, dental appliances can help protect and preserve your oral structures. They can also support the general health of the whole body.
Dental appliances offered at Cornwall Dental Care include mouth guards for sleep and sports that are designed to help protect the health of your oral cavity.
Custom-Fitted Sports Guards
If you are hit in the mouth while playing sports, a custom-fitted mouth guard provides 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 field, rink, or court.
Custom-Fitted Night Guards
Do you grind your teeth during sleep? People who do so can end up with chipped or fractured teeth, tooth wear, jaw pain, headaches, and more symptoms due to the stress on their jaw.
A mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage, help keep you from clenching while offering some pain relief to help you get a good night's sleep — and prevent the need to spend money on future repairs.
