Nighttime Bite Splints
Bruxism (grinding and clenching) often occurs when you sleep, especially if you have a high level of stress. Waking up with a headache, jaw pain or sore teeth are symptoms of excessive grinding. Dr. Dennis Teoh will assess the wear patterns of your bite to determine if a splint is something that is necessary. Protecting your teeth with a splint can prevent broken crowns, fillings and cracked teeth. It can also eliminate frequent headaches and jaw pain.
Do I Need a Mouthguard?
If you have a history of grinding, oral injuries or are involved in any athletic activity, then a custom mouthguard or splint can be highly beneficial to the health of your smile. In many cases, a mouthguard or splint can help you avoid unnecessary emergency visits and ensure the longevity of your dental restorations.
