One of our goals at Herron Regional Dental Center is to provide the most conservative treatment possible in every situation. Oral appliances offer simple, non-invasive treatment for a variety of conditions. Regardless of the application, every appliance we prescribe is custom-crafted just for you.
Whether we’re treating nighttime sleep grinding, a diagnosed case of obstructive sleep apnea, bite problems, or other jaw joint disorders, appliance therapy may be a valuable complement to your treatment. Dr. Rob Herron uses a variety of innovative designs depending on your treatment goals and preferences.
We’re concerned about the overall health of our patients, including sleep health. Many people suffer needlessly from disruptive sleep disorders that keep them from getting enough oxygen at night. The risk of a heart attack is 23 times more likely than average with a sleep disorder, and 92% of stroke victims live unknowingly with sleep apnea before having a stroke.

Teeth are the hardest substance in our bodies and can withstand a tremendous amount of force. But damage can occur, especially when grinding forces start to wear them away. A habit of nighttime clenching or grinding will harm teeth, muscles, and jaw joints over time.
