Dental Splint Brisbane

BOOK NOW

At Swish Dental our goal is to prevent dental disease. That is why we make dental splints for patients who need them. On average we make around 2-4 a week for patients who do not already have one.

Focusing on prevention

Our team has a focus on preventing dental disease from happening and preventing dental diseases from worsening. Dental splints are used to prevent chewing forces from clenching/grinding damaging the teeth which in turn causes teeth to crack or microcracks within teeth. Bacteria can get into these cracks and cause infections.

What is a dental splint?

Dental splints are are custom devices that sit on the top or bottom teeth to treat a variety of conditions and prevent dental problems. They are not mouthguards.

Who should have one?

Patients who have been assessed by us may be recommended one if they suffer from: tooth grinding, tooth clenching, jaw joint problems or tension headaches. They can also be used to prevent teeth from shifting after losing a missing tooth.

Whats involved?

An impression or mould of your top and bottom teeth are taken and sent to the dental laboratory. They will assess your bite and make a custom splint suited to your mouth and jaw movements. Usually in a week it will be ready for us to fit it in for you.
