Oral Appliances

If you suffer from bruxism, sleep apnea,
or TMJ, Dr. Andrew Edmond of Georgetown,
TX offers custom-made appliances designed
to effectively improve symptoms.

Dr. Edmond and his team at 4405 Dental Studio in Georgetown, TX are committed to providing comprehensive solutions for many different conditions. This includes various types of oral appliances, which may be used to treat bruxism (clenching and grinding teeth), obstructive sleep apnea, and snoring.

Sleep apnea treatment

Millions of American men and women snore regularly. While it is a serious disruption for sleep partners, most people don’t think of it as a health concern. However, in many cases, it is not simple snoring, but a symptom of sleep apnea. Individuals afflicted by apnea experience pauses in breathing many times throughout the night. This condition has been linked to stroke, heart disease, and many other medical problems.

A sleep appliance can support the airway, helping prevent snoring as well as apnea. It is small, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. Each sleep apnea mouthguard is custom made for an ideal fit. Even some people who don’t have apnea choose to wear an oral appliance for snoring.

Bruxism treatment

Clenching or grinding your teeth during sleep is a common habit, which is also quite destructive to oral health. It can cause fractures in teeth and make them wear down quickly. The strain on muscles can lead to jaw pain or TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder). Additionally, bruxism is a risk factor for sleep apnea. Like apnea, it can be treated with a custom-made oral device.

The bruxism dental appliance can stop potentially irreversible damage to your teeth and jaw. Most patients report that the devices are comfortable to wear and do not interfere with sleep. In fact, this type of oral appliance therapy can eliminate toothaches, headaches, and other troublesome symptoms of teeth grinding.
