Occlusal splints, commonly referred to as nightguards, can also be used as a remedy for patients who are diagnosed with the teeth grinding condition Bruxism.
Grinding and clenching is when a person slides their teeth over each other in a back-and-forth or sideways movement, causing teeth to wear down. This can lead to jaw pain and further problems. Since it mostly occurs at night and is noisy, occlusal splints are the best insurance policy for protecting your teeth, keeping muscles comfortable and giving your partner a better night's rest.
