Torrenville Dental Group | Mouthguards And Splints | Dentist TorrensvilleA number of things, including sports activities and bruxism, can compromise our teeth through wear, fracture, or chipping.

At Western Clinic Dental, we have a way to protect your teeth. Take advantage of our custom-fitted mouthguards and night splints that protect your teeth while you indulge in sports or sleep.

What Is A Mouthguard?

Mouthguards are protective equipment worn in the mouth to protect your teeth during sports activities. They cushion blows to the face and teeth, hence protecting your teeth and soft tissues in the mouth from injuries such as:

  • Knocked out tooth
  • Fractured tooth
  • Broken or chipped tooth
  • Loose tooth
  • Lip and cheek injuries

Benefits Of Mouthguards At Western Clinic Dental

Every mouthguard at Western Clinic Dental is custom-fitted to the patient. Hence it provides the optimum comfort and protection that an over the counter mouthguard cannot provide.

The following are more benefits of a custom-fitted mouthguard at Western Clinic Dental:

  • Sturdy but flexible to your movements.
  • Won’t fall out.
  • Provides optimum protection to your teeth and the soft tissues in the mouth.
  • Can be personalised to your team’s colours, picture, or logo.

What Are Night Splints?

Your teeth can suffer from a condition called Bruxism. Bruxism is the unconscious and excessive grinding of the upper and lower teeth particularly during sleep. The pressure affects not only the teeth but also the jaw, resulting in jaw pain and headache.

A night splint is a protective device worn in the mouth during sleep. It protects your upper and lower teeth from grinding, hence preventing the adverse effects of bruxism.

Bruxism happens unconsciously and many people are not aware that they have it. Sufferers have teeth that are:

  • Flattened
  • Chipped, fractured, or broken
  • Loose
  • Sensitive

People with bruxism may also wake up to a headache, jaw pain, or earache. If you have the above symptoms, it is important to visit your dentist right away for your night splint.

If left unattended, bruxism can damage the teeth, resulting in difficulty and inconvenience.
