What is a Dental Appliance?
A healthy mouth and smile needs more than just brushing and flossing. If you play sports, clench or grind your teeth, or if you snore, a custom-fitted dental appliance can help you maintain your oral structures, and in turn, protect your entire body's health.
At Barrhaven South Dentistry, we offer custom-fitted mouthguards – for sleeping or playing sports – to help protect the health of your oral cavity.
If you grind your teeth at night, a mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, it can also help prevent you from clenching and offer some pain relief.
If you get hit in the mouth during a sports activity, a mouth guard creates a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile from damage.
