If you suffer from grinding or clenching your teeth, there are ways you can self-manage such as: Limit excessive chewing and jaw opening, massage jaw, hot/cold compresses, and any other stress reducing methods. However, you may be a candidate for a custom appliance that we can make at our office!

A bite splint is a removable appliance that is worn by the patient during sleep, to protect their teeth and jaws from damage. The grinding habit is not completely resolved; but the wearing of the appliance reduces the harmful effects of teeth grinding.

At your first appointment we can take an impression of your teeth where a mold can be made. We then send it to a laboratory where it is fabricated into a custom fit protective barrier between the upper and lower teeth. You will then return in a couple of weeks for a brief delivery appointment and we will make any adjustments if necessary.
