Oral appliances are nonsurgical devices that manage conditions like bruxism (teeth grinding), snoring, and sleep apnea. Oral appliances are available over the counter, but experts recommend custom appliances for the most comfortable experience. At Overmeyer Family Dental, we design custom night guards and oral appliances in Orlando, FL using the best quality materials.
Below is some basic information on some of the oral appliances in Orlando, FL we can use to treat your condition. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our team. We will be happy to help you get all of the information you need to make a great decision for the help and comfort of your smile.
Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessica provide custom night guards as teeth grinding and TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) solutions. Night guards cover the biting surfaces of the upper or lower teeth, keeping them from making direct contact. Another type of night guard covers only the upper teeth and allows the jaw to move freely. Our night guards are made from ultra-comfortable materials that fit your mouth perfectly.
We create our night guards by first taking an impression of your teeth. This helps us create an accurate appliance that will fit your mouth comfortably. Talk to our team if you have any questions about this oral appliance.
Silent Nite Anti-Snore Appliance
Your Orlando, FL dentists offer the Silent Nite device to stop snoring. Silent Nite is a mandibular advancement device that moves the lower jaw forward and prevents the tongue from obstructing the throat. This movement will effectively decrease or even eliminate snoring. The device is made of flexible, thin plastic that slides over the upper and lower teeth comfortably. Silent Nite is very affordable, and the custom design allows for best fit and comfort.
TAP 3 Elite for Sleep Apnea
The TAP 3 Elite is a mandibular advancement device that holds the jaw forward slightly to keep the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing into the throat. The appliance is much smaller than the TAP and TAP 2 and has two pieces that snap over the upper and lower teeth like a mouthguard. You can adjust the degree to which the lower jaw is moved forward for maximum comfort. While CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is considered the most effective way to manage sleep apnea by many people, our team (and many other dental professionals) believes that oral appliances are great alternatives for patients who are CPAP intolerant.
ZYPPAH Appliance for Sleep Apnea
Another option for sleep apnea patients is the ZYPPAH appliance. Worn while you sleep, the ZYPPAH holds the jaw in the correct place and supports the tongue so that it cannot block your airway. ZYPPAH appliances are perfect for patients with mild to moderate forms of sleep apnea, and we have had success treating some severe sleep apnea cases with this appliance. Dr. Overmeyer will help you find the most effective solution for your situation.
