Oral Appliance Therapy
What Does An Oral Appliance Do?
Oral appliances have different functions. Some correct the alignment of your teeth like Invisalign and braces, while others correct snoring or protect your teeth from grinding like night guards. In many cases, depending on the severity and cause of sleep apnea, a custom oral appliance can be as effective as a CPAP machine.
At Dental Partners of Boston, we have an extensive array of oral appliance therapy services available, including:

Orthodontics isn’t just for the sake of appearances. If left untreated, crooked or crowded teeth can lead to tooth loss, gum disease, and tooth decay. The orthodontic treatments provided by Dental Partners of Boston are convenient and often invisible. We can fix your misalignments and crowded teeth.
Invisalign Invisible Braces
Invisalign invisible braces are transparent, custom-molded, removable aligners that patients can wear as an alternative to traditional braces. Patients will love how unnoticeable the aligners are as they wear them. At Dental Partners of Boston, we can provide you with Invisalign treatment for straighter teeth.
I felt like the canvas of a great artist. I was a professor of Periodontics and Microbiology and I must shout out about the skills and personal concerns evident in their attitude in dealing with patients. Dr. Stephen Halem
Bruxism is the clenching and grinding of teeth that results in tooth wear and muscle soreness in the face and neck. Our dentists at Dental Partners of Boston can fit patients with a plastic mouthpiece called a night guard. The night guards protect against the damage that teeth-grinding cause and preserve your oral health.
Besides keeping your loved ones awake, snoring caused by sleep apnea can also result in health problems for the snorer, like an increased chance of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. A snore guard created by Dental Partners of Boston can help solve snoring issues. These snore guards resemble athletic mouth guards and can be custom-made in one easy dental visit.
If you’re involved in a sport, you probably know about the risk of tooth injuries during play. Dental Partners of Boston recommends properly-fitted sports guards to wear on the field. By having a sports guard, you can save yourself the pain of dental injuries—and of extensive dental work.
The small joints in front of the ears that attach your lower jaw to the rest of your skull are referred to as the temporomandibular joints, also known as TMJ. These joints are crucial in the movement of your mouth. Patients who experience TMJ disorders can contact Dental Partners of Boston for appliances to treat their TMJ problems.
