Severe tooth pain that transpires to the jaw and facial muscles can often indicate either grinding or clenching of your teeth. Luckily, your dental specialist might be able to help. All discomfort and long-term consequences can be prevented with the prescription of custom-made bite splint, available for both hard and soft bites. Easily the most effective solution on the shelf, bite splints are able to counter the teeth decay that arrives as a result of clenching and grinding.
How Does Wearing a Bite Splint Help?
A bite splint is a simple way to prevent further teeth damage and protect the remaining healthy teeth. A paper-thin, barely palpable layer, the custom-made splint is applied to your lower and upper teeth before you go to sleep. Although it might take some time to get accustomed to it, you won’t be able to notice its presence after a week or so.
Numerous medical studies point out that individuals who clench or grind their teeth are likely to experience 80 times the normal daily teeth wear when compared to those who do not. A simple bite splint is all you need in order to escape these uninspiring statistics. The device effectively counters the effects of this often-subconscious habit all the while preventing excessive daily teeth wear and tear.
