Bite Guard Therapy

Bite guard therapy is the wearing of a clear removable bite guard over your upper or lower teeth to protect them from each other and to guide your jaw into stable and healthy positions.

What is Bite Guard Therapy?

Bite guard therapy involves the construction of a clear removable bite guard in our dental laboratory, according to specific measurements taken of your bite and jaw movements.

Do I Need Bite Guard Therapy?

You may require bite guard therapy if:
  • You grind your teeth at night or during the day (this might be done subconsciously, although there are tell-tale signs of this that your dentist will be able to spot);
  • Your teeth are wearing down faster than normal;
  • You have suffered from tooth fractures or cracked teeth due to heavy or discordant biting forces;
  • You suffer from Jaw Joint Dysfunction;
  • You suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

Stage 1: Consultation

  • At your bite guard therapy consultation, your dentist will thoroughly explore your concerns and examine your mouth. Any necessary X-rays, scans (CBCT, intraoral, T-scans or EMG) and mouth impressions will be taken.
  • These are all superficially placed, so you are unlikely to experience any discomfort from any of these. From the findings, your dentist will then discuss if bite guard therapy or other treatment options are recommended.

Stage 3: Post-Treatment Care

You will be provided instructions on how long to wear your bite guard for per day and how to clean and look after it. Your dentist will arrange a review to evaluate your progress in 2 to 6 weeks.

Stage 2: Bite Guard Therapy

  • Your records will be sent to the dental laboratory to construct your bite guard. At your next appointment, this will be checked and fitted in your mouth.
  • Your dentist may make some minor adjustments to your bite guard to refine it. When wearing your bite guard, you are likely to detect a change to your bite, which is now expected to feel comfortable. Most patients can quickly acclimatise to this.
