At Acadian Smiles in Meteghan, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall well-being.
What Is a Dental Appliance?
There's more to keeping your mouth healthy than just brushing and flossing. Dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, as well as our overall health, for those of us who participate in sports, clench and grind our teeth, or snore.
Dental appliances offered at Acadian Smiles — 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 well-being.
Patients who snore have relaxed throat tissues that cause the airway to narrow, resulting in snoring as oxygen is forced through. Patients with sleep apnea have tissues in their throat relax too much and block the airway, causing the brain to wake them up to breathe.
At Acadian Smiles, 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 mouth guards that are custom-made and fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
A mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile.
A mouth guard can help protect your teeth from damage if you grind your teeth at night. A mouth guard can help prevent you from clenching your jaw and provide pain relief if you do.
