There are many different needs for a dental appliance, and could be recommended at any point throughout your treatment. If your child or teen needs a custom fit athletic mouth guard for those high impact sports, we have a solution for you! Custom fit mouthguards can protect your investment and prevent injury.

Van Hoof Dental, serving Appleton and the Fox Valley also fits retainers and even lock jaw (TMJ) guards. A retainer can help you maintain tooth alignment after braces and the TMJ appliances can help with clenching, grinding, or headaches.

Treat Snoring & Sleep Apnea with Dental Appliances

Sleep apnea is a common condition that occurs in approximately 1 in every 15 Americans. Common symptoms include snoring, restless sleep, daytime fatigue, trouble concentrating throughout the day, and a dry mouth or sore throat when waking up in the morning.

If you are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms due to sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend treatment options such as a custom sleep or snore appliance, like a mouth guard. At Van Hoof Dental, our team will discuss with you treatment options and will create a custom mouth guard or other appliance to help relieve your symptoms. This dental appliance prevents your tongue from blocking your airway and gently moves your jaw forward to improve breathing.

Following your initial appointment, we will call you back to ensure proper fit and function of the appliance. We will also give you instructions on how to use and clean the appliance. In the future, we may also have to schedule follow-up appointments to make further adjustments as needed.
