What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining good oral health is 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 the health of our whole bodies.
Dental appliances offered at Metro Dental Care – such as mouth guards and sleep apnea devices – are used to help protect the health of your oral cavity.
Treatment for TMJ Disorder (TMD) in Calgary
Your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. If your teeth and/or jaw become misaligned, you may suffer from TMD symptoms such as jaw, face, or neck pain; popping or clicking sounds when you open your mouth; headaches and migraines; ringing in the ears or dizziness. Our dentists can create a custom TMD treatment plan including a custom-fitted mouth guard to help relieve pain from TMD - and prevent erosion in your jaw.
Custom-Fitted Sports Guards
If you get hit in the mouth while playing sports, a mouth guard can help to protect your teeth and the soft tissues of your mouth by providing a cushioning barrier.
Our dentists offer custom-made sports mouth guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards for Sleep
At Metro Dental Care we offer custom-made night guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage caused by clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep.
Many patients find that custom-fitted night guards help to relieve jaw and facial pain caused by clenching and grinding.
