A dental appliance is any device that helps treat or prevent a number of common dental issues. Appliances can be permanent or removable, and can help correct crooked teeth, missing teeth, prevent tooth grinding or protect your teeth from various traumas.
Fairhaven Dental offers a variety of appliances to help suit your dental needs.
Are you or a member of your family an avid hockey player? Whether you play casually or more seriously, hockey is a fast paced game that can quickly lead to missing, cracked or chipped teeth if you aren’t careful.
Our custom-created mouthpieces prevent athletes from suffering dental trauma. Plus, getting a proper fitted mouthguard can also help prevent concussions and clenching of teeth during a variety of sporting activities.
Getting a mouthguard that fits properly is a quick and easy procedure! An in office impression of your beautiful teeth is all that is required. Keep your teeth protected while you play and talk to our team about getting your very own custom mouthguard.
Do you sometimes wake up with jaw pain, tight neck muscles or even pain that feels like an earache (even though your ears are fine)? Or maybe, it’s your partner who is waking up to the sounds of you grinding your teeth overnight.
Clenching or grinding your teeth at night is a problem that might occur without your knowledge. It is often viewed as a harmless, though annoying, habit. However, continuous grinding or clenching of your teeth can lead to damage of your teeth and in some cases your jaw joint.
Grinding can wear down your tooth’s enamel, increase tooth sensitivity, flatten or chip your teeth and even disrupt your sleep, preventing you from being fully rested.
A comfortable ‘nightguard’ can help prevent damage to your teeth and jaw joint. Making your nightguard is easy, and all that is required is an appointment with us to make an impression of your teeth.
Call us anytime with questions or to book an appointment to have a nightguard made!
Are you often woken up at night due to snoring or trouble breathing? Or maybe you are constantly waking a partner up with your loud snores? But did you know that there are dental appliances that can help with reducing your overnight snoring?
Snoring can be caused by multiple factors, such as irregular anatomy (enlarged tonsils, low soft palate, narrow airway), allergies, or even being overweight. Snoring can also indicate other conditions like Sleep Apnea. It’s important that you consult your family doctor if you are suffering from moderate to severe snoring as it can be an indicator of something potentially more serious.
Once the cause has been identified it is easy to determine whether a snore appliance will work for you! A snore appliance repositions the lower jaw forward and helps keep your airway open as your muscles relax during sleep. A consult with one of our dentists will help you determine if a snore appliance will be able to bring you a peaceful rest once more!
