Occlusal splints / Night guards

They are hard coverings used to protect teeth from damage caused by grinding while you are asleep.

Research showed that 60%-70% of the population grind their teeth during the night (different strengths at different stages of life), sometime the grinding is loud enough to be heard by a partner or someone who sleeps next to the grinder.

Grinding or clenching teeth which is also called bruxism causes a number of problems such as: Wearing out of teeth, cracking of back teeth, breakage of restorations and severe damage to the jaw joint leading to clicking of the joints, headaches and pain.

Occlusal splints break the habit of grinding your teeth during the night and it is very easy to wear.
