Do I Need an Oral Appliance?

everything you need to know about oral appliances

What Is An Oral Appliance?

Oral appliances are custom-made devices that are worn in the mouth to treat various dental and medical conditions. They are designed to help correct problems with the bite, jaw, and airway, and can be used to treat a variety of issues, including snoring, sleep apnea, bruxism (tooth grinding), and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).


Oral appliances are typically made of soft or hard plastic materials and are custom-fit to the patient’s mouth. They are easy to use and typically require no special maintenance and just some regular cleaning.


Why Should I Wear My Night Guard?

One of the main advantages of oral appliances is that they are non-invasive and do not require surgery. They are small, portable, and easy to wear. This makes them a good option for people who are looking for a comfortable and convenient treatment for bruxism, sleep apnea or other conditions.


Oral appliances have been used for many years and have been proven to be safe and well-tolerated by patients.


Are Oral Appliances Expensive?

Oral appliances can be quite expensive but are typically covered by insurance. If you are experiencing symptoms of jaw pain, bruxism, sleep apnea, recurring teeth breaking or other conditions that may be treated with an oral appliance, it is important to talk to your dentist or doctor. A dentist can help you determine if an oral appliance is right for you and can make you a custom-fit appliance for you.
