If you suffer from bruxism or wear and existing splint that needs replacing, call us today. A custom made bite splint can effectively eliminate the damage to natural teeth while protecting the oral health of the patient.

"My son recently had a number of composite fillings applied to his front teeth. We are delighted with the result and as part of the treatment, it was recommended (by our Dentist) we visit the dental technician directly to make a hard/soft splint. Evan Sallis of Wellington dentures was highly recommended.

My son has a habit of severe tooth grinding but we are happy to say Evan provided a very comfortable and well fitting splint. Dan (our son) has been wearing this successfully for 6 months and In that time we are proud to say none of his teeth have been damaged. We have no hesitation in recommending Evan for Bite Splint fabrication"
