Do you grind or clench your teeth at night, wake up with headaches or have pain in your jaw or jaw joints? Wearing a dental splint could help to relieve pain and discomfort so you can sleep soundly.
A dental splint (also called an occlusal splint, bite splint or nightguard) is an oral appliance that eases strain on the jaw muscles and joints and prevents chewing forces from damaging the teeth, which can expose the teeth to bacteria and cause infections.
At Swish Dental, the dentists make dental splints in Brisbane as a preventive treatment for patients who need them. They'll ask about your symptoms and examine your mouth and jaws so they can determine whether a bite splint or other treatment is most suitable.
