Custom Mouthguards in Subiaco

In general dentistry, mouthguards are protective dental appliances that cover the natural teeth and gums. They are designed and custom-made in a dental laboratory to ensure a perfect fit.

Mouthguards are made of materials that will provide comfort and safety when playing sports and help protect the teeth from trauma.
General dentists recommend another appliance, called an occlusal splint, for patients who grind their teeth at night. A condition called bruxism can lead to permanent damage to the tooth structure. Over time, grinding can cause weakened enamel, leading to cracking, chipping, sensitivity, and even tooth fractures.

An appliance known as a Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS) is recommended to patients with diagnosed sleep apnoea.
Finally, an anti-snoring device can be custom made to help patients who snore at night.

Benefits of Mouthguards

Mouthguards and splints provide protection for your teeth, gums, tongue, and cheeks against damage caused by sports and grinding, respectively. They can help to prevent chipping or losing teeth, harming a tooth’s nerve, and injuring the soft tissues of your lips, tongue, inside cheeks, and gums.

Frequently asked questions

Wearing a mouthguard while sleeping can help keep your top and bottom teeth separated so that the pressure of grinding or clenching doesn’t damage them. Patients with bruxism need a custom-fitted mouthguard or occlusal splint. A stock mouthguard or over-the-counter mouthguard product, can be uncomfortable and difficult to fit in place.

When playing sports, an athletic mouthguard is worn over the top teeth. Mouthguards serve as barriers or cushions between the teeth and the point of impact. They prevent damage to your teeth if they are impacted while playing sport.

Sleep apnoea mouthguards work by pushing your lower jaw and tongue forward, thus keeping your airway open during sleep.

You should wear a mouthguard/occlusal splint if any of the following applies to you:

• If you play a high-impact sport, such as hockey, AFL, boxing, or rugby.
• If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding).
• If you snore or suffer from sleep apnoea.

It’s important to look after your mouthguard correctly, so it lasts a long time.

• Rinse your mouthguard with cool water after each use, and clean it with soapy water and a soft brush. Let it dry completely before putting it back in a case.
• Do not expose your mouthguard to direct sunlight run it under hot water; Heat can warp the mouthguard, making it distorted.
