Mouthguards: Optimum Protection at Play

With contact sports and activities that carry the risk of a head injury, wearing a mouthguard is important for teeth protection. Mouthguards are appropriate for all age groups and reduce the risk of dental injuries.

Our custom-made mouthguards provide the best protection. They are moulded from mouth casts to fit precisely into your mouth and over your teeth.

Mouthguards can also prevent or lessen the chances of:

  • being knocked unconscious;
  • tooth and jaw fractures;
  • concussion; and
  • injuries resulting from the lower jaw impacting up into the upper jaw during a collision.

Mouthguards can help you avoid the extra time, expense, and discomfort associated with cosmetic and restorative treatments.

If you have dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or other types of prosthetic dental work, a mouthguard is essential to protect your smile.

Splints: Night Guards During Sleep

Bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching during sleep) is a common problem. This can go unnoticed for a long time as it is an involuntary habit that happens during sleep.

If you have TMJ pain, sensitive teeth, recurring headaches, tooth erosion, flat teeth, or damage to dental restorations/teeth, you may want to consult your Warrnambool dentist.

An occlusal splint (or “night guard”) is a removable appliance that is tailor-made to fit either your top or bottom teeth. It is worn during the night, while you sleep, to protect your teeth from clenching or grinding.

Teeth grinding or clenching can lead to wear and tear on your teeth, and in a large number of cases, cracked teeth.

Cracked teeth can often lead to more expensive dental procedures such as root canal treatment and crowns, or in severe cases tooth removal.

An occlusal splint worn at night decreases the amount of pressure placed on your teeth and protects your teeth against long-term damage.

Common symptoms of night grinding or clenching include:
  • Waking up with sore teeth
  • Having trouble chewing your breakfast due to sore muscles on the side of your face
  • Waking up tired
  • Waking up with headaches and neck stiffness

We are here to help you answer these & more questions thoroughly.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Mouthguards and Splints

1. How long will my mouthguard or occlusal splint last?

Custom-made mouthguards or splints will last between 3 to 5 years if cared for properly and depending on the frequency of usage.

It is important to have your mouthguard examined by your Warrnambool dentist at your regular check-up, to ensure it is still in optimal condition and still fits properly.

2. How do I care for my mouthguard?

To ensure your mouthguard lasts for a long time, rinse with fresh, cold water after every use, store in a rigid/plastic container and keep it out of direct sunlight, as mouthguards are quite malleable when heated.

It is also advised that you wash your mouthguard with mouthwash to keep it sterile.
