Night Guards, Mouth Guards and Retainers in Melbourne
At Dental Boutique, we offer night guards, mouth guards and retainers. Each mould has its own unique purpose, and it’s our job to identify the problems you’re experiencing and design a mouth guard or retainer that best suits you.
Whether you need a sleep mouth guard for teeth grinding, bruxism or a retainer for post orthodontic treatment, our process and technology are highly advanced and designed to last, not dispose of.
Night Guards (Splints)
Sports Mouth Guards
Sports mouth guards are ideal for athletes that participate in contact or highly physical sports, such as soccer, rugby, AFL, hockey, water polo, UFC etc.
At Dental Boutique, we service patients that have experienced tooth fractures, punctured lips, or severe punctures to the tongue and cheeks by creating custom-fit mouth guards. Our customised mouth guards offer a soft barrier between an external blow and the sensitive features of the mouth.
A retainer is a clear plastic mouth guard that is often worn either just at night or all day and night except for meal times. Retainers are designed to hold the alignment and position of your teeth post orthodontic treatment.
Types of Night Guards
The NTI Guard (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System), is used to prevent medically diagnosed bruxism – a disorder that engages your jaw muscles during sleep, forcing you to clench and grind. This can lead to severe migraines and square jaw due to the overuse of the jaw muscles.
NTI Guards cover just the front two central incisors, which adds a layer of separation between the top and bottom teeth, providing relief from the tension.
Mouth Guards for Bruxism
Bruxism Mouth Guards are similar to the NTI Guards, but they cover the entire top row of teeth and, in some cases, the bottom row.
How are Night Bruxism Guards and NTI Guards made?
At Dental Boutique, we value quality. We believe if the task is completed to the highest standard the first time, you won’t have to replace your guard at an inconvenient frequency.
To create a full-row night guard and an NTI guard, we scan your teeth digitally to capture your teeth in 3D. We design the guard with software that replicates the 3D scan, fitting comfortably to your teeth and your teeth only. Depending on the type of guard, the mould is created either through 3D printing or a suck-down machine.
At Dental Boutique, we recommend replacing your night guard every two years if you have severe bruxism and every five years if it is moderate.
