Occlusal Guards (Bite Splint)

Occlusal Guard (Bite Guard)

   

Occlusal guards are used in the treatment for bruxism (grinding), clenching, as well as the treatment of TMJ discomfort. People prone to nocturnal bruxsim, or nighttime clenching, wear occlusal splints at night.

To make an occlusal guard, upper and lower impressions are taken and sent to the lab. The dental lab will then make a custom guard for you to be worn on the upper arch.
