To address clenching, grinding, snoring and more
Intraoral appliances are devices that are placed inside the mouth to provide a therapeutic or corrective effect. They are commonly used in dentistry and orthodontics to address clenching, grinding, snoring, and high-impact sports, even temporomandibular joint disorders.
For example, a nightguard may be prescribed to protect teeth from damage caused by grinding or clenching while a mandibular appliance may be used to treat sleep apnea by repositioning the jaw and tongue to open the airway.
Overall intraoral appliances can be an effective way to address a range of dental and orthodontic issues. However, they must be fitted properly and used under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional to ensure safety and effectiveness.
