At Dr. Matthew S Ng Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Coquitlam, 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 is more than just brushing and flossing. Dental appliances can help to protect and preserve oral structures for those who clench or grind their teeth, snore, or who play sports.
Dental appliances offered at Dr. Matthew S Ng Family and Cosmetic Dentistry – such as mouth guards and snoring devices – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Sleep disorders can disrupt your sleep and negatively impact your overall health and wellbeing.
For patients who snore, their relaxed throat tissues cause the airway to restrict, creating the sound of snoring as oxygen is forced past.
At Dr. Matthew S Ng Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide custom-fitted oral appliances to move the lower jaw and tongue muscles to open the airway. This helps improve your flow of breath and can prevent you from waking up throughout the night.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouthguards to help protect your teeth from damage.
If you get hit in the mouth during a sports activity, a mouthguard can provide a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to help protect your smile.
If you grind your teeth during sleep, a mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard will also help prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
