Oral appliances have several applications such as bite correction. Have a bad habit of grinding your teeth in stressful situations? Or maybe your just not getting the sleep you need due to a diagnosed case of sleep apnea. We’ll get you the help you need to improve your quality of life.
If you’ve been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea we can fit you for an oral appliance that will help to keep your airways open and improve airflow while you sleep. The appliances are custom made for each patient and are great as a backup to CPAP in patients with mild cases of obstructive sleep apnea. Let us know if you snore or have been diagnosed with OSA and would like to discuss your options on appliances.
Grinding your teeth during sleep or stressful situations can cause serious damage over time and require major dental work to repair. The act of teeth-grinding places tremendous pressure on the teeth, which could lead to small fractures that compromise the integrity of your teeth. It’s also an incredibly abrasive action and slowly wears the surface of your teeth down.
In addition to the strain and damage on your teeth, you’re also straining your jaws, which can jaw popping, pain, arthritis, and damage to the joints. While it might not seem like much at the moment, over time the damage caused can be irreversible.

In addition to being comfortable, they are much more durable than the typical over-the-counter guards you can buy at the store. Let Dr. Yei take a look at your teeth and discuss your conditions to see if a dental guard is right for you.
