Custom Mouthguards & Splints
Healthy Smiles in North Sydney
Mouthguards are protective pieces custom fitted over your teeth to protect them from trauma or excessive wear. Having one made that fits snuggly to your teeth provides a better level of both protection and comfort. At Dentique Dental Solutions, North Sydney families like yours can benefit from the two different types of mouth guards that we offer:
Sporting activities are one of the most common causes of broken teeth, lip lacerations and concussions. Wearing a custom mouthguard can protect the teeth, lips and jaw should an injury occur. Wearing a mouthguard is one of the best pieces of insurance that you can have for your teeth when you’re an active athlete.
Nighttime Bite Splints
Bruxism (grinding and clenching) often occurs when you sleep, especially if you have a high level of stress. Waking up with a headache, jaw pain or sore teeth are symptoms of excessive grinding. Dr. Dennis Teoh will assess the wear patterns of your bite to determine if a splint is something that is necessary. Protecting your teeth with a splint can prevent broken crowns, fillings and cracked teeth. It can also eliminate frequent headaches and jaw pain.
Do I Need a Mouthguard?
If you have a history of grinding, oral injuries or are involved in any athletic activity, then a custom mouthguard or splint can be highly beneficial to the health of your smile. In many cases, a mouthguard or splint can help you avoid unnecessary emergency visits and ensure the longevity of your dental restorations.
