One of our goals is to provide the most conservative treatment possible in every situation. Oral appliances offer simple, non-invasive care for a variety of conditions. Regardless of the application, every appliance we prescribe is custom-crafted for you with excellent fit and function.
Appliances designed on models of your teeth can be used to fit on either upper or lower teeth, or on both at the same time. Whether we’re treating night-time sleep grinding, diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, bite problems or jaw joint disorders, appliance therapy may aid our treatment. Dr. Coulon & Dr. Watts employs a variety of innovative designs depending on treatment goals and your preferences.
Common TMJ symptoms include an uncomfortable bite, pain in or around the ear, headaches, bruxism (grinding of the teeth), tenderness of the jaw, clicking or popping noises when opening and closing the mouth, and even neck aches.
Laboratory processed professional grade mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection, retention, comfort and fit, without interfering with speech or breathing during play.
