Dental Guards & Dental Appliances
Guards & Appliances
Professional dental appliances or devices can be used to prevent and treat a variety of conditions, protect the teeth and mouth, or act as an extension of other oral treatments. Columbia Square Dental offers a variety of dental appliances that are custom-designed to fit perfectly into your mouth and your lifestyle.
Night guards are a common way to avoid bruxism, a condition causing grinding of the teeth during sleep. When you wear a night guard, it provides a protective barrier between your teeth, ensuring that any grinding motion does not cause damage to the teeth or soft tissues of the mouth. Dentist-designed night guards are comfortable because they are custom-fit to your teeth, and they are designed to last longer than over-the-counter options, such as boil-and-bite night guards.
A retainer is most often used in the final stage of orthodontic treatment. Retainers help preserve the effects of the recent treatment, ensuring that your teeth stay in their new positions. A comfortable fit is essential for a retainer, since you’ll need to wear it consistently. Our dentist-quality retainers are durable, beautiful, and comfortable.
Sports Mouth Guards
Every adventure comes with some risk, and when it comes to your teeth and mouth, there is a simple way to protect them. Custom sports mouth guards are designed to protect your mouth (and even your head, jaw, and neck) from impact, while still allowing you to breathe easily so you can move quickly. If you or your children play sports, ask our dental team today about custom mouth guards for sports and activities.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea
If snoring or mild to moderate sleep apnea is disturbing your sleep, a dental orthotic device may be able to help resolve some or all your issues. This is a simple, quiet, comfortable, and custom-fit option that can lead to better sleep, improved daytime concentration, and overall improvement in your health.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that attaches the jaw to the skull and allows you to speak and chew. Issues in the temporomandibular joint can seriously interfere with these everyday activities, but dental devices are available to help reduce pain and increase mobility in the joint. Our dental offices offer professional-grade devices custom-fit to your mouth and teeth for the greatest comfort and effectiveness.
