Occlusal Splint

When teeth have been grinded (bruxism) from side to side the teeth can become worn down and chipped or damaged. This often occurs whilst we sleep, clenching is also common whilst sleeping. Clenching also tenses the jaw muscles and creates impact within the skull which may cause pain and headaches. An Occlusal Splint can be used to protect the teeth by preventing the teeth opposing from meeting each other, hence preventing bruxism and jaw clenching.
