At Ainslie Street Dental in Cambridge, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help improve and protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
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 Ainslie Street Dental – 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
Breathing disorders that disrupt your sleep can negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
Snoring is caused by relaxed throat tissues which cause the airway to restrict and the surrounding tissues to vibrate as oxygen is forced past.
Sleep apnea is a condition where the throat tissues over-relax and obstruct the airway, forcing the brain to wake them up to breathe.
At Ainslie Street Dental, our dentists can provide patients with custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles, helping to open the airway and improve the flow of breath.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
At Ainslie Street Dental we offer custom-made mouth guards that fit comfortably over your teeth to protect them from damage.
Custom-fitted sports mouth guards provide a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth, to protect your smile while playing contact sports.
If you grind your teeth when sleeping, a night guard will help protect your teeth from damage. Night guards can also help to prevent you from clenching your teeth at night.
