Many patients link their dentist with everyday dental work, such as filling cavities and providing
routine exams and cleanings. However, dentists can also assist patients in other aspects of their
lives. At Vanguard Dental, we offer both snoring devices and sports guards for our patients who need
Oral Conditions Snoring & Apnea
Thousands of Americans suffer from sleep apnea, which is often caused by an obstruction in the patient's airway as they sleep. Many times, the obstruction is caused by the patient's tongue falling into the back of the throat, or by a misaligned jaw that lessens the amount of air that can get through the throat. This may result in a patient with excessive snoring, which can also affect the bed partner. Vanguard Dental offers snoring devices and sleep apnea appliances to help relieve patients of the symptoms. These devices are custom made for the patient for a precise fit and proper function. They are worn overnight, realigning the jaw while holding down the tongue to prevent snoring.
Pediatrics Prevention Mouthguards
Football and other active sports require mouth guards to protect the teeth from any damage that can occur from impact and trauma. Finding a sports guard that fits the mouth correctly can be difficult, so having a professional dentist custom-fabricate an oral appliance such as a sports guard is necessary to provide the best protection for your smile. Patients can schedule an appointment to come in and have impressions made that can be used to create a high quality, custom sports guard. It is an affordable and safer alternative than conventional oral appliances offered at drugstores.
