Dental Mouthguards & Occlusal Splints
Keep your teeth safe from the effects of grinding or contact sports with a custom-moulded dental mouthguard – the comfortable alternative to a store-bought guard.
Why should I get a custom dental mouthguard over a store-bought?
Custom dental mouthguards are typically more comfortable and offer better protection than generic store-bought devices.
Are sports guards and grinding guards the same?
No. A grinding guard is called an Occlusal Splint (also called a bite splint, bite plane, or night guard) which is a removable dental appliance carefully moulded to fit the upper or lower arches of teeth worn at night to reduce the amount of grinding pressure transferred to the teeth.
What is the process of getting dental mouthguards or occlusal splints?
During your mouthguard consultation we will determine whether you are a good candidate for a dental mouthguard or occlusal splint. If you qualify, we’ll take moulds of your teeth. Within days your custom moulded dental mouthguard will be ready for fitting! Our dentist in Darwin will show you how to use and care for your mouthguard and offer any advice with regards to maintaining it.
