Splints And Night Guards

Splints and night guards

Occlusal splints are used as a preventative measure for tooth grinding and clenching. Bruxism – as it is also known, may happen during waking hours but is most damaging and frequently occurring during sleep. They can lead to many problems such as:

  • Tooth sensitivity and pain
  • Clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joints
  • Headaches
  • Facial, ear, eye, neck, shoulder, or back pain
  • Pain or tenderness in and around the jaw joints especially upon waking
  • Worn tooth surfaces
  • Broken or chipped teeth

These symptoms need careful evaluation and may be treated by a combination of therapies. Many people will gain much relief by using an occlusal splint, for night-time wear. Sometimes physio or drug therapy and stress management are also required.
