Splints

Patients who grind (brux) or clench their teeth can benefit from wearing a bite splint at night time.

A splint is custom made to fit snugly over your top teeth and is similar in appearance to a thin sports gum shield.  

Wearing a splint at night has many benefits-wear and tear on teeth is reduced, patients report a reduction or disappearance in sore jaws in the morning, often have a better nights sleep and a reduction in tension headaches can also occur.
