There are several reasons you may need the help of an oral appliance for some of your dental needs. If you’re experiencing smile dissatisfaction, you may choose to utilize Gardner & Swanner’s Invisalign technique to straighten gapped or misaligned teeth. Invisalign utilizes clear aligner trays to adjust your teeth.
Dental appliances are also used in some cases such as custom night guards for snoring, teeth grinding, teeth clenching, Bruxism, or sleep apnea. In each case, Gardner & Swanner may decide that a mouth guard or dental appliance is right for you.
Whatever dental appliance you may need, there are many considerations you will want to keep in mind as you keep them working at their optimal capacity
- Be sure to follow the care and cleaning instructions given to you by Gardner & Swanner. You want to make sure you are keeping everything that goes into your mouth free from germs and bacteria that could possibly cause further damage to your oral health.
- If your oral appliance is not in your mouth, keep it in the dentist-issued case or container. Forming habits for storing your appliance will help prevent you from misplacing it or losing it.
- Keep your oral appliance away from your dog. For some reason, you pooch seems to love the smell (and taste) of your saliva. They may also mistake it for a chew toy. Keep all of your oral appliances out of reach Fido!
