The night guard splint for bruxism is an individually made product based on the patient's teeth. This is what makes the night guards so effective and very comfortable to wear. Night guard are the most effective method of the protection of teeth. It is thanks to them that there is no premature wear or fatigue of the jaw muscles. The night guard also eliminates the unpleasant sound of teeth grinding. We make our products for dentists every day.
What is bruxism?
It is the subconscious grinding and clenching of teeth. The forces generated on the tooth surfaces of bruxism sufferers can be up to ten times greater than during normal conscious biting, for example, when eating. Our teeth are not adapted to such loads as a result of which serious injuries and even irreversible changes in the oral cavity or skull can occur.
It is estimated that as much as 15% of the population is affected by bruxism.
This problem mainly affects people exposed to harmful factors such as stress, genetic predisposition, neurosis, malocclusion, poorly made fillings, dental cavities and even daily habits that may have contributed to unconditional teeth grinding such as chewing gum or biting nails.
TYPES OF NIGHT GUARDS
Relaxation spl ints cover the entire arch up to the seventh teeth(second molar).
All splints can be used at night while sleeping, or during the day.
