Understanding the benefits of these appliances is the first step in deciding if they will benefit you!
What types of mouthguards are used at Centre Place Dental?
Lincoln, Nebraska, area patients can ask about the following appliances available with our team:
- Mouthguards for grinding teeth. Patients diagnosed with bruxism may experience damage to the smile due to clenching and grinding that happens while they sleep. Wearing a mouthguard for sleeping can protect the teeth from experiencing breakage or wear from this condition.
- Mouthguards for obstructive sleep apnea. Patients diagnosed with this condition, known as obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, may be seeking an alternative to the traditional CPAP machine. With oral appliance therapy, individuals with obstructive sleep apnea can curb the symptoms of this condition by wearing a custom mouthguard worn at night to maintain open airways.
- Mouthguards for sports. Patients active in high-impact or high-contact sports will want to talk to our doctors about obtaining a custom mouth protector to wear during these activities to protect the teeth and gums. Blows to the mouth can cause cuts in the soft tissues or even knocked-out teeth, so our team highly recommends being proactive in protecting the smile. Many sports, like football, soccer, and ice hockey, require participants to wear mouthguards.
