Nightguards, Sleep Apnea, and Snore Appliances in Kelowna

What Love It Dental Offers

To address the unique needs of all our patients, we offer several dental appliances. Each one will be made to fit your unique oral dimensions only via digital impressions. High-quality materials, like dental plastic, are used to create the devices because they do not cause swelling or inflammation to your tissues. Unlike store-bought appliances, tailored dental guards last for several months and are much more comfortable to wear on a routine basis.

Here is what we provide:

  • Night Guards 

As indicated by the name, a night guard is worn overnight and protects teeth from rubbing against each other (also known as bruxism). The guard absorbs any unconsciously exerted stress, preserving teeth from fractures and the jawbone from unnecessary damage. You can acquire a soft, laminate, or hard night guard.

Night guards are certainly worth exploring if you need a better sleep. Talk with our dentist in Kelowna today to get yours.

  • Sleep Apnea (Panthera)/Snore Guards 

Sleep apnea is a general health condition defined by pauses in one’s breathing due to airway obstructions. Snoring, restless sleep, and daytime irritability are just a few symptoms that this can cause.

A snore guard is a device that effectively manages sleep apnea. It works by moving the lower part of the jaw slightly forward and holding it in place, which opens up the airways so more oxygen can pass through.

Attend a consultation with our dentist in Kelowna, Dr. Suzanne Degner, to find out if this treatment option is right for you. You may be referred to a medical practitioner or a sleep specialist if you’re dealing with a more severe form of sleep apnea.

Caring for Your Dental Appliance

Being responsible and caring for your dental appliance will ensure that it lasts and functions correctly. This includes cleaning it after use to stop bacteria from collecting since this can contribute to cavity formation, storing your guard in a clean, dry place, and attending check-ups with your dentist so they can monitor your progress. Wearing the guard every night will ensure that your smile receives the protection it needs and that you can sleep soundly.

We Look Forward to Meeting You

Our amiable, capable team, led by the wonderful Dr. Degner, eagerly anticipates your visit! We are passionate about our work, and seeing our patients’ faces light up when they leave our clinic because they’re feeling happy and confident with their smiles means the world to us. So, if you or a loved one are looking for a quality dental appliance near you, please message us at your earliest convenience.
