Many people wear oral appliances at some point in their lives. A dental appliance is any artificial apparatus designed to protect, repair, or replace the teeth. Some dental appliances are temporary and removable, where as others are permanent and fixated within the mouth. Professionally-produced oral appliances are designed to be minimally obtrusive and easy to wear. Guards can be used to:
- reduce snoring
- correct sleep apnea obstructive episodes
- protect during sports
- manage risks to teeth for those who grind and/or clench their teeth
- improve sleep patterns
- correct the inter-jaw relationship
