Mouthguards and Splints
The tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body. However, despite their durability, our teeth can still suffer from damage.
Whether by accidents, sports activities, or grinding, our teeth are exposed to the possibility of accidents more often than we think.
At Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge, our goal is to make sure that you have strong, healthy teeth protected even during sleep or play! Enjoy our custom-made mouthguards and splints for protection, even while sleeping.
Do you grind your teeth while sleeping?
Teeth grinding, also called Bruxism, means clenching your upper teeth and lower back teeth tightly together, especially at night, which results in teeth breakage.
The continuous pressure on the tissues, muscles, and other structures of the jaw causes jaw pain, headache and more.
To help reduce the stress in your jaw, your dentist at Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge will recommend jaw exercises.
However, for additional protection, we also suggest wearing an occlusal splint during sleep to prevent grinding.
The splint keeps teeth from grinding by preventing your upper and lower teeth from making contact while you sleep.
Mouthguards: Protecting your smile at play
Mouthguards protect your mouth from dangerous impact. If you need a custom-fit mouthguard, it will have to be made either by your Kellyville Ridge dentist or fabricated at a dental laboratory after taking impressions of your mouth.
Mouthguards are built to protect your teeth from blows during exercise and contact sports. They are commonly used by boxers, though many other professional, recreational and competitive athletes also wear mouthguards.
Splints: Nightguards for Bruxism
Splints are used for several purposes in dentistry. Among these, the most common is stress management. When you are stressed, you tend to unknowingly release it on your teeth by clenching your cheek muscles and grinding your teeth.
This places your jaw structures under heavy pressure, resulting in damaged teeth and jaw joints. To halt the effects, the dentist places a splint between your upper and lower teeth to prevent grinding.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I need to wear a mouthguard?
If you or your child play contact sports or enjoy other activities where the teeth may be at risk of blows, it is very important to wear a mouthguard. This will safeguard the teeth during impact, avoiding chipping, breaking, or even losing teeth.
Why do I need splints?
If you suffer from Bruxism, you need to wear a splint to prevent the following conditions:
Chipped, worn out and fractured and missing teeth. Patients who suffer from Bruxism often find certain activities painful; the splints receive the force of your teeth, which makes eating hassle-free.
Jaw pain, headaches, tenderness, muscle tightness and TMD that can have negative effects on your everyday life. Wearing splints is an effective way of addressing and preventing this pain and helping you to enjoy life more.
