If you find yourself clenching and grinding your teeth at night, you may benefit from an occlusal splint. Also known as a night guard, a splint can protect your teeth from the excessive wear that accompanies grinding (bruxism). Lowrance Dental offers custom-molded night guards fabricated from the finest materials to ensure a comfortable fit. After just a few weeks of using an occlusal splint, most of our patients say they have trouble falling asleep without it!

Not only is snoring annoying to others around you, it can disrupt your sleep and lead to sleep apnea. A snore guard can help eliminate these conditions by keeping your jaw aligned in a comfortable forward position. This allows your airway to remain open and clear, giving you a peaceful night’s rest. Ask the dental professionals at Lowrance Dental if a Snore Guard can help you.

Besides affecting a person’s self-confidence, missing teeth can create health problems. People who are missing teeth are more prone to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, chewing difficulties, and bone loss. It extreme cases, missing teeth can make the jaw shrink and facial structure collapse, leaving a person with an aged, hollow-checked appearance. To prevent such consequences, Lowrance Dental may recommend a bridge or dentures.
