Guard for teeth grinding / clenching (Occlusal splint)
Tooth abrasion, or the damage caused by the constant grinding of your teeth, is a major concern. If not given attention, this might lead to more complex conditions. Before this happens, you should address the damage with a sense of urgency by getting Occlusal Splints that lessen the damage to your teeth and jaw.
What are Occlusal Splints?
These are removable dental appliances specially made to fit your bite. They can be placed on the upper or lower arch, depending on where the damage is.
These Occlusal Splints protect your teeth from further abrasion. They are usually used by people who clench and grind their teeth during sleep. Dental care experts also recommend these for other purposes such as in handling jaw disorders and protecting tooth restorations.
Occlusal Guards and Teeth Grinding
A lot of people clench, grind, and gnash their teeth involuntarily while as they sleep. Unknowingly, you might be one of them.
This condition gives you a number of concerns when you wake up. The most common would be the pain in your head, face, jaw, or teeth. In addition, chronic teeth grinding causes a lot of dental and oral health problems like malocclusion, tooth loss, and TMD.
Before the worst happens, you can prevent all these concerns by wearing Occlusal Splints.
