Occlusal Splints Applecross
Occlusal splints are recommended for people who grind or clench their teeth: a condition called “bruxism” and for people that have had dental treatment due to bruxism.
Bruxism is excessive teeth clenching, grinding or chewing. It can lead to excessive tooth wear, which might cause:
- permanent enamel and tooth structure loss
- cracking and splitting of teeth
- damage to jaw joints
Bruxism can occur in adults and children during the day or at night.
