Night Guard ( Splints ) for Grinding & TMJ
If you or someone you know experiences severe tooth, jaw or facial muscle pain, it may be from the effects of grinding or clenching your teeth. The good news is that a custom-made night guard can be fabricated which can offset the pain caused by bruxing or grinding your teeth.
A night guard is a proactive step to protect your existing healthy teeth. A clear, thin removable device, your custom-made bite splint is worn over your lower or upper teeth as you sleep protecting your teeth from the harmful effects of grinding.
Studies suggest those who grind and clench their teeth may experience up to 80 times the normal tooth wear per day compared to those who do not. A simple bite splint can offset the effects of this often-subconscious habit while protecting your teeth from daily wear and tear.
