One of our goals is to provide the most conservative treatment possible in every situation. Oral appliances offer simple, non-invasive care for a variety of conditions. Regardless of the application, every appliance we prescribe is custom-crafted for you with excellent fit and function.

Appliances designed on models of your teeth can be used to fit on either upper or lower teeth, or on both at the same time. Whether we’re treating nighttime sleep grinding, diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, bite problems or jaw joint disorders, appliance therapy may aid our treatment. Dr. Mai employs a variety of innovative designs depending on treatment goals and your preferences.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth are the hardest substance in our bodies and can withstand a tremendous amount of force. But damage can occur to this highly mineralized surface, especially when grinding forces start to wear it away. A habit of nighttime clenching or grinding will harm teeth, muscles, and jaw joints over time. Protecting against abrasive forces is critical in these cases.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a dangerous sleeping disorder in which your breathing starts and stops repeatedly while sleeping. Consequently, you may snore loudly, gasp for breath while sleeping, wake up with a dry mouth, have excessive daytime sleepiness, and general insomnia. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to severe complications, including type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart problems. You must protect yourself against sleep apnea with the correct dental appliances.
