Dental Appliances for Upper Arlington
The experts with Mark A. Miely, DDS General & Cosmetic Dentistry in Upper Arlington can fit you with custom-made dental appliances. We provide both deprogrammers and night guards to help improve your health. We will always ensure the most comfortable fit possible, so don’t hesitate to schedule your appointment today.
A deprogrammer is a plastic appliance that will help Dr. Miely learn more about your current bite, and determine what your ideal bite would look like. This diagnostic tool locates a bite that works best for your muscle, jaw, and teeth so that they can function in perfect harmony.
Could I Benefit from a Deprogrammer?
If you are suffering from any of the following symptomatic problems, you can benefit from the bite analysis that a deprogrammer provides.
- An inability to chew some foods comfortably
- Confusion about how your teeth should fit together
- Worn down front teeth
- Chipped or cracked back teeth
- Damaged fillings
- Loose teeth
- Sore jaw
- Tightness in the jaw
Once you wear your deprogrammer, we can help you achieve a bite that won’t wear down your teeth and dental work. You will have fewer worn out crowns and fillings, and a more relaxed and comfortable jaw.
The night guard is a simple oral appliance that will help reduce teeth clenching and grinding habits. Over time, these habits lead to severe tooth wear and fractures, tooth sensitivity, aching joints, and headaches. You can correct these habits with an easy-to-wear night guard.
Dr. Miely will design a protective night guard just for you. Your night guard will protect the teeth, joints, and muscles, while reducing soreness and tooth damage. Your mouthguard will fit over your upper and lower teeth, and is easy to transport and clean.
We are happy to provide our patients with the attention they deserve. We never double book, so that we can have a rewarding conversation about your smile needs, and about whether an oral appliance would be right for you.
