Oral Devices for Sleep & Sports Protection

Maintaining exceptional oral health extends beyond just brushing and flossing. If you play sports, snore, or clench your teeth while sleeping, dental appliances can help preserve and protect your oral structures.

At Highland Dental Centre, we offer snoring and sleep apnea appliances, sports guards, and night guards. These dental appliances are custom-fitted to your mouth, offering both protection and comfort.

These oral appliances offer a simple and easy-to-use way to protect your smile. Talk to our dental team today to request a sports guard or to see if dental appliances may be able to give you a better night's sleep.

Snoring & Sleep Apnea Appliances

In patients who snore, throat tissues relax and cause the airway to restrict, producing the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced past. Snoring can be more serious than you might think, since frequent snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea.

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, this means that your throat tissues relax excessively, to the point where the airway becomes blocked. Your brain is then forced to wake you up to breathe.

We all know that sleep is crucial to your overall health and well-being. If you are not getting enough sleep due to sleep apnea, you may feel fatigued and irritable. You may also experience headaches and brain fog. Sleep apnea can also lead to an increased risk of health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

Your dentist may recommend a custom-made dental appliance to help treat snoring and sleep apnea. We offer non-invasive, comfortable solutions to help prevent snoring, including Silent Nite® appliances. The Silent Nite® sleep solution increases space in the airway tube, reducing the vibration that results in snoring. These snore appliances are a personalized, non-surgical solution to your snoring problem.

Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards 

We offer custom-made mouth guards to protect your teeth and gums from damage.

Sports Guards

If you are hit in the mouth while playing sports, a custom-fitted sports guard provides a cushioning barrier between the teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth. These dental appliances are custom-made to fit your teeth and are designed to protect the face, jaw, head, and teeth from injury while you focus on the action on the ice, diamond, field or court.

Night Guards

If you grind your teeth while you sleep, you may end up with worn, chipped or fractured teeth. You may also experience jaw pain and headaches due to the stress on your jaw. A night guard can help protect your teeth from damage, help keep you from clenching, and offer some pain relief to help you get a good night's sleep. On top of all of that, if you protect your smile while you sleep, you can potentially save money on tooth repairs in the future.
