Oral Appliance

Snoring and grinding appliances

At Westpoint Dental Clinic we offer oral appliances for snoring and teeth grinding.

Snoring appliances

There are a number of reasons why people snore:

  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Certain medications
  • Having excess fatty tissue around the neck

Snoring is not always indicative of a health problem. How badly you snore—and this can be ascertained with a sleep study—will determine the best form of treatment for you. Snoring appliances can range from Mandibular Advancement Device to a CPAP machine.

At the end of the day the treatment we prescribe to you will depend on your individual needs.

Teeth Grinding appliance

Teeth grinding is quite common, but since it happens while you are asleep you often won’t know you’re doing it. Side effects of grinding which can help your Westpoint Dental Clinic dentist diagnose teeth grinding include:

  • Ear ache
  • Jaw pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sensitivity to hold and cold drinks
  • Sleep disorders

Oral Appliance

Often the treatment for grinding your teeth is a clear plastic device which looks similar to a mouthguard. This guard can help to train your teeth to stop grinding, and is just one of the treatment methods on offer for teeth grinding.
