A biteplane is an acrylic appliance that custom fits over your top or bottom teeth to help prevent grinding and clenching and its associated sequelae of tooth wear, headaches, and TMJ pain.
Sportsguards are fabricated to protect your teeth and gums. Injuries to the mouth and jaw are common for athletes. We can fabricate a custom sportsguard for improved fit and comfort.
Snoring/Sleep Apnea Appliances
Snoring appliances reposition your jaw and tongue, while keeping your airway open to improve your breathing. These appliances can be custom made to ensure a proper fit.
A complete denture is an appliance that is used to replace all teeth when no natural teeth remain. The denture sits on the edentulous ridge and extends to particular anatomical areas of the mouth to allow for suction to hold the denture in place. Stability and retention of dentures can be improved by incorporating implants.
Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is a dental appliance that replaces missing teeth in the upper or the lower jaw. Partial dentures are made of metal, acrylic, or most commonly a combination of both materials. They use clasps to wrap around the remaining natural teeth to stabilize the appliance and hold it in place.
