Many people grind their teeth while they sleep and they have no realization of the fact that they have this night time habit. Night time teeth grinding can cause premature wear and tear of teeth and fillings as well as cause your teeth to fracture. Flattening and chipping of front teeth can also occur due to this.

An occlusal splint and night guard may be prescribed for this condition. This is an acrylic appliance to be worn at bedtime that fits over the biting surface of your teeth and prevents further damage from this destructive habit. You can also protect your smile and cosmetic dentistry with this splint.

What Are the Symptoms?

  • Worn out teeth.
  • Increased tooth pain or sensitivity.
  • Tight or tired jaw muscles.
  • Jaw or neck pain.
  • Dull headache which begins in temples.
  • Loose, flattened, chipped or fractured teeth.
