Discover the Benefits of Oral Appliances in Arlington, TX
At Central Park Dental & Orthodontics, your oral health and overall well-being are our top priorities. That’s why Dr. Jung and our team are committed to providing innovative dental solutions to ensure you receive the best possible care. One advanced approach in dentistry is the use of oral appliances, which can address various dental concerns while promoting better oral health and even overall health.
Oral Appliances in Dentistry and Our Autonomic Nervous System
Oral appliances are custom-made devices that fit comfortably inside your mouth to help with a range of dental conditions. They can help treat snoring, sleep apnea, teeth grinding, jaw disorders, and even certain orthodontic issues. By addressing these conditions, oral appliances can positively impact your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) function. The ANS is responsible for controlling vital functions such as heart rate, digestion, and respiration, making it essential to our overall health.
At Central Park Dental & Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer two specialized oral appliances that can contribute to an improved ANS function: the Homeoblock™ Dental Appliance and The POD® (Preventive Oral Device).
The Homeoblock™ Dental Appliance
The Homeoblock™ Dental Appliance is a revolutionary device that looks like a retainer but offers results that go way beyond teeth straightening. This removable appliance is worn at night and works by gently expanding the dental arch and stimulating bone growth, ultimately leading to a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial appearance. As a result, it can improve airway function and positively impact your ANS, contributing to your overall well-being.
Benefits of the Homeoblock™ Dental Appliance:
- Non-invasive and comfortable treatment
- Improved facial symmetry and balance for a natural anti-aging effect
- Enhanced airway function, reducing the risk of sleep apnea and snoring
- Straighter teeth and a more attractive smile
- Better jaw alignment, reducing the risk of TMJ disorders
- No associated risks, so it is a safe option for everyone
The POD® (Preventive Oral Device)
We offer another advanced oral appliance at our dental office in Arlington called The POD®. The POD® (Preventive Oral Device) is a custom-made oral appliance designed to address teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism) while also serving as a preventive measure for TMJ/TMD disorders. Worn during sleep, The POD® alleviates the pain and discomfort caused by bruxism and protects your teeth from excessive wear. By maintaining a healthy bite, The POD® promotes optimal ANS function.
Benefits of The POD®:
- Alleviating pain and discomfort caused by teeth grinding and clenching
- Protecting teeth from excessive wear and potential fractures
- Reducing the risk of TMJ disorders
- Enhancing overall oral health by preventing damage to teeth and gums
