At Centre dentaire Fancelli, 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 isn't just about brushing and flossing. Some of us play sports with a risk of contact between players, while others clench or grind their teeth, or snore while sleeping.
For these patients, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures and general physical health.
The dental appliances offered at Centre dentaire Fancelli, including mouth guards and devices to treat sleep apnea, help to improve and protect oral health.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep problems may prevent us from getting the rest we need and can be harmful to our health.
Snoring is often a symptom of sleep breathing disorders, and is characterized by the sagging of the soft tissue in your throat, causing the airway to restrict.
Oxygen is forced past these, causing the sound we know as snoring. Sleep apnea, on the other hand, is a health problem characterized by involuntary pauses in breathing during sleep.
At Centre dentaire Fancelli, our dentists can offer you a custom-made oral appliance to move your lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This will improve air circulation - helping you to get a restful night's sleep.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouth guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
When you play sports or participate in physical activity where you risk taking a hit to the face, your teeth can be broken or become damaged. A sports mouthguard can help protect your teeth and gums while enjoying the health benefits of participating in physical activity.
Do you grind your teeth or clench your jaw while sleeping? Our dentists may recommend wearing a mouthguard at night to protect your teeth from damage and relieve pain.
