Oral Appliances

One of our goals is to provide the most conservative treatment possible in every situation.  Oral appliances offer simple, non-invasive care for a variety of conditions.  Regardless of the application, every appliance we prescribe is custom-crafted for you with excellent fit and function.  

Appliances designed on models of your teeth can be used to fit on either upper or lower teeth, or on both at the same time.  Whether we’re treating night-time sleep grinding, diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, bite problems or jaw joint disorders, appliance therapy may aid our treatment.  Dr. Weaver employs a variety of innovative designs depending on treatment goals and your preferences.

Teeth Grinding

Under normal circumstances, your teeth should only contact for about 5 minutes each day.  Normal chewing results in brief intervals of contact between enamel surfaces, the hardest substance in the human body.
