TMJ – Occlusal splint

What is an occlusal splint?

A splint is a special mouth guard worn during sleep to help prevent the damage to your teeth, temporomandibular joint and alleviate jaw and muscle pain that can be caused by bruxism and jaw clenching.

It is designed with your comfort in mind and is custom made making it a precise snug fit and allowing you to open and close your mouth naturally.

How does the splint work?

The splint doesn’t stop teeth grinding, but it provides a protective barrier between your tooth surfaces to even out the pressure across your jaw. By creating a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth, it helps to protect them from teeth grinding damage.

Is it comfortable?
Your custom-made splint will fit comfortably over your upper or lower teeth. While wearing your device, you’ll be able to fully open and close your mouth, yawn, drink, take tablets and even speak clearly.
