OCCLUSAL SPLINT (NIGHT GUARD)

An occlusal splint is a removable guard that is worn at night, used to protect your teeth from deterioration and wear of grinding or clenching (bruxism). It can help to prevent your teeth cracking further, reduce in height, and is also very helpful in protecting new veneers. Let us customise one for you and protect your teeth from further damage.

Grinding your teeth in your sleep? Many people clench their teeth together at one time or another, especially during the night.

Soul Dental recommends the use of an occlusal splint (or night guard), a custom moulded hard plastic appliance fitted over your upper teeth. This protects natural teeth, crowns or implants from general wear and tear or cracking due to teeth clenching and grinding (called Bruxism), helping to relieve muscle tension, chronic headaches, painful joint symptoms, and other oral health issues.

Soul Dental’s custom-made splints are modelled on your teeth and designed to prevent individual tooth wear, reduce destructive forces on the jaw joint, ligaments, cartilage and protect against further damage and shortening of teeth structure. 

If your teeth are affected by grinding or clenching, Soul Dental can assess you during an oral exam and quickly set an effective treatment plan in motion.
