Here at Banyule Dental, we offer therapeutic oral devices to treat Snoring, Sleep Apnoea and TMD/Bruxism.
Mild to moderate sleep apnoea can be treated with a dental device that helps to hold open the airway during sleep.
You may also be recommended to use a Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure machine (CPAP) that uses a mask to supply a constant flow of air, keeping your airway open during sleep.
We can assess the damage already caused by these conditions, before recommending suitable treatment. This may as straightforward as a custom-made mouthguard or splint which is worn overnight to prevent the teeth from coming into contact and causing further damage to the teeth and gums.
Bruxism may be related to stress, so it could help to reduce your stress levels if possible. This treatment is often sufficient, but more severe cases of TMD may require surgery. This is quite rare and is only used after alternative options have been tried.
At Banyule Dental we provide the most comprehensive range of dental services in the Greensborough area in a friendly, caring environment.
Our emphasis is on patient education and preventative procedures, however we provide the full range of treatment options including cosmetic/reconstructive work, dental implants, crowns/veneers, orthodontics/Invisalign, wisdom tooth surgery and treatments for sleep apnoea/tooth grinding.
