Dental Guards & Appliances

Dental appliances or dental devices are form-fitted, removable apparatuses that are worn in the mouth for a variety of reasons. Many devices are designed to protect the teeth and mouth from damage, while others will guide the position of the teeth or mouth. This allows you to care for your teeth at home, while playing sports, while sleeping, or after orthodontic treatment. Tuscany Dental Centre offers a large selection of dental appliances to ensure you get the best at-home care for your oral health.

Guards & Appliances

Night Guards

Night guards or splints are simple devices worn in the mouth to separate the teeth. This ensures you cannot grind and clench the teeth while you sleep, which occurs due to a condition known as bruxism. A night guard protects the teeth, soft tissues, and jaw and can lead to better sleeping patterns and better overall health. They may also be worn during the day for those who are prone to clenching and grinding as a result of stress. To learn more about bruxism, the impact of grinding and clenching your teeth, and how to get a custom-fitted night guard, ask our experienced dental team!

Retainers

Retainers are typically worn in the final stage of orthodontic treatment to help the teeth retain their positions. Although the work of moving the teeth into correct alignment will have been completed by this stage in the orthodontic process, it is important to provide support for the teeth that maintains their new positions. Otherwise, the teeth may slowly shift back, and further orthodontic treatment will be necessary. Retainers are custom created for your teeth by our dental team in conjunction with a professional dental laboratory. If you are approaching the final stages of your orthodontic treatment, talk to our dentists today about being fitted for a retainer.

Sports Mouth Guards

Sports mouth guards are an important part of your regular sports gear. Athletes of all types, ages, and skill levels wear mouth guards to protect their teeth, gums, cheeks, lips, tongues, jaws, and heads from impact and injury. The guard is a simple piece of plastic fitted over the teeth, which absorbs shock and keeps the teeth separated. Custom mouth guards designed by a dentist are form-fitted to the teeth, ensuring a comfortable and tight fit that allows players to breathe, move, and speak easily. Ask our dentists about a professional-grade sports mouth guard to protect your health!

Snoring & Sleep Apnea Devices

Changes to the airway while we sleep can cause a range of breathing issues that disturb our sleep, and in some cases, can be dangerous. Snoring is often the first stage, and it is caused by the relaxation of the muscles in the soft palate. Sleep apnea is a more serious condition that can cause a sleeper to stop and start breathing throughout the night. If you suffer from snoring or sleep apnea, Tuscany Dental Centre has solutions designed for you. Our oral appliances are simple to use and comfortable, allowing you to breathe easily and get a full night of rest.
