Dental appliances may be recommended at any point throughout your treatment path. The days of goopy impressions are over. We may update impressions as your treatment progresses and the materials we use make this an easy process for you. We even offer digital impressions.
Occlusal splints or biteguards are just a few of the appliances Fox Dentistry makes for our patients. Appliances can be used for reducing added stress on tooth structure and gum tissue. Grinding or clenching can really destroy tooth enamel, so a simple appliance can be made to protect your teeth. There are specialty appliances that can help reduce stress on the TMJ to relieve discomfort in the jaw, or customized sleep appliances that improve breathing which promotes better sleep.
After your dental treatment has been completed, Fox Dentistry will make you aware if a post treatment appliance is necessary to help maintain your oral health and beautiful smile.
