OCCLUSAL SPLINTS

Clenching and grinding could be wearing away at your teeth without you even realising it.

At Dental Hub Geelong, we design personalised occlusal splints to keep teeth from being worn down in your sleep. This simple protective barrier prevents extensive damage and saves you from the trouble of more involved dental procedures down the road.

Prevent Damage From Clenching and Grinding

Most of us subconsciously clench and grind our teeth sometimes while we sleep, especially when we’re in a stressful situation. Over time, this hidden habit can wear down structure until teeth become shortened and difficult to fix.

This often leads to a collapsed bite, reduced function, and significant discomfort. If left unaddressed, patients may need a total mouth rehabilitation to rework the mouth structure and restore proper function.

Customised Cushioning to Protect Your Teeth

The occlusal splint is a custom-made barrier that acts as a cushion between the teeth to reduce friction. It can be worn on the top or bottom jaw when you go to bed to keep your teeth safe while you sleep. It can prevent future issues or maintain the dental work you’ve had done so problems don’t resurface.

Cleaning out Deep Pockets of Plaque

We custom make each occlusal splint to match the shape of your mouth. This produces a surprisingly comfortable fit that you don’t mind wearing every night.

Many of our patients report that after a few weeks, they can’t imagine going to bed without it. In addition to protecting your teeth, the splint also helps many people sleep better, since they no longer wake up with sore jaws or stiff muscles.

Any invasive or surgical procedure may carry risks. Before moving forward, it is recommended that you seek a second opinion from an appropriately licensed medical professional.
