CUSTOM MOUTH GUARDS
If you play football, basketball or any type of athletic sport, we strongly recommend a custom-made mouth guard to ensure that it fits well, while also allowing you to speak and breathe with ease without having to worry about it falling out.
Splints (also known as night guards) are a custom-made removable acrylic appliance designed to fit your upper or lower teeth. By guiding your jaw into a neutral position, splints provide an easy and cost-effective way to help relieve pressure and prevent further damage to the teeth and jaw as a result of grinding and clenching.
SPLINTS AND MOUTHGUARDS FAQs
How long will my mouthguard / splint last?
How do I care for my mouthguard / splint?
To ensure that your splint and/or mouthguard last for as long as possible, it is important to keep it fresh and clean. Each morning, clean your splint with a toothbrush and then rinse under cold water. While no tooth paste is required, denture cleaning products such as Polident or Sterident may also be used. When not in use, we recommend storing the splint in its plastic container (provided by us when your splint is ready to take home) and out of direct sunlight to avoid bacterial growth and malleability.
When travelling with your splint, always ensure that it is dry before placing it in its container. Keep the container clean by regularly washing your case with hot, soapy water to prevent contamination and possible illness or oral infection.
