Night Guards

Many individuals grind or clench their teeth involuntarily while sleeping and need night guards to help treat the issue. Nighttime teeth grinding can result in unwanted wear and tear on teeth, as well as jaw and facial pain during the day. Night guards create a thick plastic barrier to stop your teeth from wearing each other down.


Retainers are often used to hold in place teeth that have been moved by orthodontics. Teeth are stubborn and sometimes want to move out of position after finishing orthodontic treatment and to prevent that, retainers are used. Sometimes these retainers are temporary and only used for a few months after treatment, while others are for life. They can also vary from simple plastic bars to wear at night to wires glued behind the teeth.

Sports Mouth Guards

Sometimes someone’s aim is off, or someone trips and falls hard while playing sports, and that can result in teeth getting damaged. Sports mouthguards can be worn to minimize the impact of spots while keeping your teeth safe. Individuals playing sports with a high risk of impacts, such as hockey, skiing, martial arts, and football, may want to consider wearing a mouth guard.

Snoring & Sleep Apnea

If you have trouble sleeping due to snoring or sleep apnea, or maybe your partner does, there are some ways Coquitlam City Dentist can help you! Snoring and sleep apnea have a lot to do with the mouth and tongue, so appliances in the mouth can help reduce the effects and help you get the rest you need.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can cause a lot of TMJ, jaw, and facial pain. To reduce this pain, medications, mouth guards, physical therapy, and jaw surgery are all options, but mouth guards are where Coquitlam City Dentist can help you out! Get started by speaking to your doctor and dentist, who can guide you in the right direction for treatment.
