Grinding and clenching your teeth are both bad for your health. Clenching causes pain in the jaw, neck, shoulder and facial muscles as well as severe tooth pain. Grinding leads to unnecessary wearing down of the tooth enamel, which leads to dental damage.

A bite splint is a device that fits over your teeth to protect them from the effects of grinding and clenching. We will custom make the device to fit over your upper and lower jaw to alleviate the pain and damage caused by severe teeth clenching or grinding.

Patients who wear a bite splint report a remarkable improvement in the side effects of grinding and clenching their teeth.

A splint is important for patients who already have bridges, implants, crowns, dentures or veneers because clenching and grinding can potentially damage these restorations.
