Mouthguards and Splints

Your teeth can be compromised by wear, fracture, and chipping for many reasons including sports activities and bruxism (grinding).

At Passion Family Dental North Lakes, we have a way to protect your teeth to help you avoid these conditions.

Take advantage of our custom-fitted mouthguards and night splints that protect your teeth while you indulge in sports or sleep.

What are Mouthguards?

Mouthguards are protective equipment worn in the mouth to protect your teeth during sports activities.

They cushion blows to the face and teeth, hence protect your teeth and soft tissues in the mouth from injuries such as:

  • Knocked out tooth
  • Fractured tooth
  • Broken or chipped tooth
  • Loose tooth

  • Sturdy but flexible to your movements.
  • Correct fit so they don’t off.
  • Provides optimum protection to your teeth and the soft tissues in the mouth.
  • Can be personalised to your team’s colours, picture, or logo (for a small additional cost).

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 impact 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.

Over an extended period of time, instead of grinding away your own teeth and causing them damage, you will wear away the night splint, preventing the adverse effects of bruxism on your teeth.

The slight cushioning effect of the night splint will often give relief to a tired or painful jaw.

Bruxism happens unconsciously, and many people are not aware that they have it.

Sufferers may 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 any of 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 discomfort and inconvenience.
