Comprehensive Prosthodontic Solutions

If you're seeking expert guidance and personalized solutions for Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), sleep apnea, teeth-grinding, and other common yet highly stressful complaints, you're in luck. You’ve landed at the top-tier destination for prosthodontic orthopedic appliances in Baltimore & Columbia.

Orthopedic Appliances in Prosthodontics

In the context of prosthodontics, orthopedic appliances play a pivotal role in addressing various conditions related to the jaw, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and associated structures. These appliances are meticulously designed by our experts to provide therapeutic support, alleviate symptoms, and enhance overall oral function. At our practice, orthopedic appliances can be broadly categorized into distinct types, each serving a specific purpose:

Sleep Apnea Appliances

Sleep apnea is a widespread condition impacting millions, characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep. Our Sleep Apnea Appliances, such as the TAPA® 3, OASYS Appliance, Klearway Appliance, and Herbst Telescopic Appliance, can each offer a comfortable alternative to traditional treatments like CPAP. 

By subtly repositioning the jaw, these appliances promote unobstructed airflow, reducing snoring, and improving sleep quality.

Night Guards

Night Guards, also known as occlusal guards or splints, are orthopedic appliances designed to address issues like teeth grinding (bruxism) and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD).

These custom-fitted guards create a protective barrier, preventing dental damage caused by grinding and providing relief for TMD-related symptoms.

TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders) Appliances

Temporomandibular Disorders encompass a range of conditions affecting the TMJ. Each of these may lead to pain, clicking, and even limited jaw movement. 

At Maryland Prosthodontic Associates, our TMD Appliances are tailored to your individual needs. Our aim is always to rapidly alleviate discomfort and lastingly restore proper jaw function.
