Mouthguards and splints

Mouthguards and Splints

We only get one set of adult teeth so it’s important to protect them at all times. While everyone is susceptible to accidents and injuries of the mouth, people who play contact sports and engage in physical activities face a higher risk than most.

Here at Tarneit Dental Care, we make custom mouthguards for sportspeople, and provide splints to people who experience teeth grinding and related problems. Our mouthguards are professionally fitted and designed to protect your teeth, gums, lips, jaw, and lower skull.

Benefits of a mouthguard

Mouthguards are beneficial to anyone who participates in contact sports. Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, our experienced dentists can create custom mouthguards that fit your mouth and protect your smile. Our mouthguards are made with flexible materials that conform to the shape of your mouth and absorb shocks to your face while you play.

Whether you play AFL, rugby or soccer, a mouthguard can help to prevent broken and chipped teeth along with more serious problems such as a concussion or a broken jaw.

What is a splint?

An occlusal splint is a special type of mouthguard that people wear at night to help prevent teeth grinding. Also known as bruxism, grinding of the teeth can cause tooth damage and related problems such as headache, jaw pain, and bite disorders. While an occlusal splint will not stop you from grinding your teeth, it can be used to guide the jaw into a natural position and relieve pressure in and around the mouth.

Here at Tarneit Dental Care, we offer mouthguards and splints that are designed to protect your teeth and look after your smile.
