Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) Splints
Bruxism is when a person subconsciously clenches and grinds their teeth. The excessive wear and tension can lead to broken tooth enamel and frequent headaches. Grinding typically occurs at times such as during sleep or while at work (especially if you have a stressful lifestyle).
By wearing a protective bite splint, you can reduce muscle tension, TMJ pain and excessive tooth wear. We may recommend bruxism splints if you’ve recently invested in cosmetic treatments, to avoid unwanted chipping over time.
Depending on when you tend to clench and grind your teeth the most, a bite splint can be worn during the day or while you’re sleeping.
