Offering a convenient, non-invasive treatment option for many patients, oral appliances can be used to treat a wide range of circumstances. Custom designed and built to fit your teeth perfectly, these personalized appliances can be used to treat bruxism, (otherwise known as teeth grinding), bite problems, and obstructive sleep apnea.
Regardless of your need, you can have confidence that Howell dentist, Dr. Gupta will deliver a quality appliance to best fit your preferences and goals.
Bruxism, aka – Teeth Grinding
Grinding of the teeth for long periods of time can cause serious damage, wearing away enamel and exposing your teeth to potential sensitivity and decay. Whether brought on by stress, or simply a part of your life, it is critical to protect yourself from the negative consequences of grinding with a custom made oral appliance.
Placed in the mouth during sleep, oral appliances can offer a worthwhile sleep apnea treatment alternative to patients suffering from CPAP intolerance. An oral appliance is designed to move the lower jaw slightly forward in order to relax the tissues in the back of your throat. Allowing you to breathe properly throughout the night, this treatment can help you get more restful sleep. Many patients prefer this appliance therapy for its comfort and convenience.
