Occlusal Splints and Nightguards

What Is An Occlusal Splint?

 

An Occlusal Splint (also known as a Dental Splint or a Night Guard) is a custom-fitted cover for your teeth, worn to protect the teeth and jaw. Occlusal Splints are removable and are often worn to prevent Dental damage from conditions such as Bruxism (teeth grinding), or teeth and jaw clenching. Dental Occlusal Splints are commonly worn at night to protect against these conditions while sleeping.

 

Who Are Occlusal Splints For?

 

Occlusal Splints are an ideal solution for those who suffer from Bruxism. Bruxism is a condition that involves excessive grinding of the teeth and jaw clenching, causing damage to the teeth and jaw. Occlusal Splints are designed to protect the teeth, mouth muscles and jaw from damage and wear. Wearing a Dental Splint also relieves muscle tension and pain associated with Bruxism.

 

If you are prescribed a Dental Occlusal Splint, you should wear it when you are unable to stop yourself from grinding your teeth – often while sleeping, and sometimes while you are working or studying.

 

How Do I Know If I’m Grinding My Teeth?

 

At your Dental Check-Up, your Dentist will often be the first to identify teeth grinding. This is because your Dentist may notice cracks in your teeth or indentations on your tongue and cheeks. You may also suspect that you are grinding your teeth if you have:

  • A tight or sore jaw
  • Toothaches 
  • Tooth Sensitivity 
  • Aches in your ears or headaches
  • Clicking noise when you open your jaw
  • Flattened teeth
  • Trouble chewing food 

 

If you’re experiencing any of these teeth grinding symptoms, it’s recommended to visit your Dentist to assess your condition.

 

Benefits of Occlusal Splints for Bruxism

 

Wearing a custom-fitted Dental Occlusal Splint works to protect your teeth and mouth from the negative impacts of Bruxism. It also helps to relieve pain associated with teeth grinding, such as a tense jaw and headaches. Wearing an Occlusal Splint can prevent painful and costly Dental Treatment to repair damage such as cracked teeth, flattened teeth or tooth extractions.

 

Occlusal Splint Vs Mouth Guard

 

Occlusal Splints and Mouthguards serve two different purposes. Mouthguards protect your teeth from physical impact (for example, during sporting activities), while Occlusal Splints prevent harmful movements in your mouth and are worn while sleeping. Your Dentist will be able to tell you which treatment option is best for you.

Occlusal Splint Appointment Process

 

Your Occlusal Splint appointment process will start with an initial Consultation with one of our expert Dentists. At the Consultation, your Dentist will assess your condition and provide you with the best treatment options. The Dentist will take impressions of your teeth and bite. After your Consultation Appointment, our Dental Technicians will hand-craft your Dental Occlusal Splint in our in-house Dental Laboratory. When you receive your custom Occlusal Splint, your Dentist will outline how to best use it and manage your condition. 

 

Occlusal Splint Cost Brisbane

 

A General Consultation at Brisbane Smiles costs $100. The Occlusal Splint cost will depend on your condition and the required treatment. At your consultation, you will receive a customised price estimate.
