Safeguard Your Teeth
At our Central Coast dental practice, we offer a range of products to help you and your family keep your teeth well protected. The mouthguards we provide are custom made to suit your dental structure, and they will afford your teeth a high level of protection during intense contact sports. Additionally, we offer splints to help patients who grind or clench their teeth excessively.
When you visit Dental at Lake Haven, you can count on receiving attentive, friendly and compassionate assistance. Our team will listen to your requirements and recommend the ideal mouthguard or splint to match them. The mouthguards we offer are available in an array of colours.
If you play a high-intensity sport – like rugby, hockey, soccer, wrestling, boxing, or AFL – it’s crucial to have a mouthguard. Failing to do so could result in broken teeth, fractured jaws, concussion and a range of other injuries. In fact, a comprehensive study of high school athletes found that 75% percent of injuries could have potentially been avoided if mouthguards were worn.
At our Central Coast dental practice, we are able to custom create mouthguards to match your unique dental structure. We will take an impression of your teeth and then use it to formulate your mouthguard. A range of colours are available to choose from.
Whether you require a mouthguard for yourself or your child, Dental at Lake Haven has got you covered. Call us to book a consultation today.
Bruxism – a condition characterised by the excessive grinding or clenching of teeth – can result in extensive damage and dental weakening over time. Typically, bruxism occurs during sleep and generally precedes the onset of rapid-eye-movement sleep.
Fortunately, our Central Coast dentists are able to offer splints to help remedy this condition. Essentially, a splint is an appliance that fits over the teeth and helps to ensure the forces produced by bruxism are distributed evenly between the upper and lower jaw. This, in turn, can help reduce joint overloading and muscle strain.
To find out how our staff can help you address bruxism with a splint, be sure to get in touch with us today.
Frequently Asked Questions
Provided they are cleaned regularly and properly cared for, a mouthguard can function from between 3 to 5 years.
Every morning, you should remove the splint and rinse it in cold water. After this, gently brush the inside and outside of the splint with a toothbrush. It’s also advised to use denture or mouthguard cleaner to disinfect the splint.
We strongly recommend against this. The heat in the dishwasher will likely distort the mouthguard so that it no longer fits correctly.
