Teeth are strong, but not strong enough to endure the ongoing force from grinding your teeth or heavy impact as a result of contact sport. The good news is, whether you grind your teeth at night or spend time on the sporting field, damage is avoidable. At Clarity Dental, we offer personalised sports mouthguards and bite splints to protect your teeth while you sleep and play! You only get one set of teeth, so it pays to protect them where you can!

Bite Splints

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a condition that affects many people. This subconscious grinding and clenching of your teeth whilst you sleep can do extensive damage to your teeth over time.

Boy in Ground

A lot of the time, people are unaware that they grind their teeth. An oral examination with one of our dentists can help identify if this is something you do. It’s important to detect issues like these early on. Left unattended, they can result in needing major restoration work down the track.

Wearing a custom bite splint while you sleep can help protect your teeth. Our custom made bite splints are made to fit. They protect your teeth while allowing a comfortable night’s sleep.

It’s important to note that bite splints don’t solve the issue of teeth grinding. They safeguard your teeth from the damage it causes.

Sports Mouthguards

If you love immersing yourself in sports and leisure activities, it’s important to protect your teeth. High impact sports and activities pose risk to your teeth, which can be significantly reduced by using a good mouthguard.

At Clarity Dental we can provide custom-made mouthguards. They are made especially to fit your mouth and teeth. Not only does this offer you better protection, but it also offers you optimal comfort.

Our dentists advise against the types of mouthguards that are available to buy in stores. They are far inferior to their custom made alternatives, in terms of both protection and comfort.

What to expect when getting a bite splint or mouthguard

Whether you’re getting a custom made bite splint or mouthguard, the process is mostly the same. It’s a two-phase procedure which consists of taking impressions of your teeth for the custom making of your oral device, and then ensuring a good fit when it’s ready.
