Oral Appliance Therapy

Effective preventive dentistry goes much further than regular dental exams and dental cleanings. At Orono Dental Care, we take a comprehensive approach to dentistry that includes oral appliance therapy to protect your teeth and your overall health.

Custom Athletic Mouthguards

Playing sports is a great way to learn the importance of teamwork, get a great workout, and have fun! Certain sports, however, can pose a threat to your teeth. By wearing an athletic mouthguard, you are making a great choice for the future of your smile!

Hockey, football, wrestling, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and many other sports require contact with other players or fast-flying objects. A custom mouthguard can protect your teeth by absorbing some of the force from impact. 

We create custom mouthguards for adults and kids designed to protect your smile and stay put when you need it most.

Nightguards for Bruxism and TMJ

If you wake up with headaches, sensitive teeth, or sore jaw muscles, you may suffer from a nocturnal teeth-grinding habit, also known as bruxism. We can determine if you are a teeth grinder with an exam. Worn teeth, bite marks inside your cheeks, and bony tori growths under your tongue often indicate that you are clenching or grinding in your sleep.

A custom nightguard can protect your teeth from premature wear and relieve some TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), or painful jaw symptoms, by gently gliding your jaw into a comfortable location where it will be less likely to grind away the night. Our custom nightguards are designed to be comfortable, snug, and long lasting.

Oral Appliance Therapy for Snoring

If you have ever shared a room with someone who snores, you know how much it can destroy healthy sleep. In many cases, snoring is indicative of other serious medical conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea.

By wearing a custom snore guard, you can get a better night’s sleep and protect yourself from the complications of sleep disorders such as OSA.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a sleep disorder that causes you to stop breathing dozens, or even hundreds, of times during the night. OSA can cause medical complications such as high blood pressure, mood disorders, and an increased likelihood for heart attacks, stroke, obesity, and diabetes. Due to the fatigue it causes, it may be dangerous to drive or operate machinery.

Most OSA treatment comes with a recommendation of using a CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) machine, though some patients do not tolerate it well. At Orono Dental Care, we offer a comfortable and convenient alternative – oral appliance therapy.

Oral appliances designed to treat OSA and snoring assist in opening your airway by gently sliding your lower jaw forward. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine considers oral appliance therapy a good alternative to the CPAP machine, and many patients prefer its convenience and comfort.
