Oral Splint (Night Guard)

Teeth grinding or bruxism is a habit that can be detrimental to your oral health. It can cause excessive tooth wear, broken restorations and headaches. In order to reduce these effects, your dentist may recommend that you wear an oral splint (or night guard).

An oral splint is a custom-made appliance that is worn at night to protect your teeth and relieve the pressure on your jaw joint (temporomandibular joint).
