Guards / Bite Applications

The best way to protect your teeth from grinding and clenching is by using mouth guards and bite appliances. They generally come in two forms: bite appliances (if you have a habit of grinding your teeth) and sports guards (if you play a sport that can damage your teeth).

 

Grinding Or Clenching

Some people have a habit of biting down and grinding their teeth against each other. This can cause damage to your teeth and cause pain in your jaws. We can create custom mouth guards and bite appliances to help protect your teeth from grinding and clenching

Other bite appliances and services we can provide to help your oral hygiene, health and use are:

Dentures

Dentures are the removable replacement for teeth that help you chew your food if some, or all, of your teeth are missing. There are two types: partial denture (for only some missing teeth) and complete dentures (if all your teeth are missing).

 

Bridges

Sometimes, if you have one or two teeth missing, then the adjacent teeth can rotate and occupy the free space. A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic device, which avoids this and also keeps your teeth looking attractive.

 

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic X-rays are 2-D radiographic examinations that can capture the entire mouth and teeth in just one image. It takes the image around your jaw as it has a curved structure.

 

Cephalometric X-rays

This radiographic image is generally taken for orthodontic treatments and allows your dentist to take the image of the entire side of your face.

 

Intraoral Cameras

An intraoral camera that gives us a clear digital image of your teeth on a screen.

 

Snoring Counseling

Snoring occurs because the air can’t move freely in the nasal passage, causing vibrations and noise. This can lead to loss of oxygen in your body. We can provide advice and treatment for this from a dental perspective.
