This thorough bite assessment is then used to take measurements and design and fabricate a custom-made splint to ensure your jaw is protected and provide you with complete and comprehensive protection.

Most dentists will say that splints will last 3 to 5 years. Our Splints will last well over 10 years! In fact, we have never had to make a new splint for a patient who has

chewed through their Splint. (beware, we make lots of replacement splints when the dog has chewed it, Splints make yummy chew toys!!)

We have been providing the very best Splint Therapy to West Ryde, Eastwood, Epping, and Meadowbank residents for many years with spectacular results.
