Why Choose a Custom Bite Splint for Clenching?
Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding or clenching, can lead to a range of dental issues if left untreated. In order to combat the negative effects of clenching, our Dentists can provide you with a customized bite splint. A bite splint, also known as a nightguard, is a removable oral appliance that helps protect your teeth and jaw from the damaging effects of clenching or grinding.
When you visit Edward Byrne, our Dentists will conduct a thorough examination to determine if clenching is causing damage to your teeth or jaw. If so, they will recommend a bite splint that is designed specifically for you. These custom-made splints offer superior comfort and effectiveness compared to over-the-counter options.
The Benefits of Using a Bite Splint for Clenching
By wearing a bite splint, you can experience a wide range of benefits:
- Protection: A bite splint provides a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing them from contacting each other during clenching or grinding episodes. This helps eliminate the risk of chips, fractures, and excessive wear.
- Pain Relief: Clenching or grinding can often lead to jaw pain, headaches, and muscle soreness. A custom bite splint helps alleviate these symptoms by reducing the pressure exerted on your jaw joint (TMJ) and surrounding muscles.
- Improved Sleep Quality: Many individuals who clench or grind their teeth have trouble sleeping. By wearing a bite splint, you can achieve better sleep quality, as the splint helps relax your jaw muscles and minimize disruptive clenching or grinding noises.
- Preservation of Dental Work: If you have dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or veneers, clenching can put additional stress on these structures, leading to potential damage. A bite splint acts as a cushion, protecting your dental work and prolonging its lifespan.
