Most people who grind their teeth regularly tend to do so at night, without being aware of it. While occasional teeth grinding is usually not a reason for concern, anyone who experiences regular teeth grinding should receive advise from their dentist in regards to treatment options. Regular and consistent teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) places excessive force on the teeth, TMJ and jaw joints. This causes wear and tear on the tooth enamel, as well as muscles and joints in the jaw. Bruxism can lead to a variety of serious problems. These include broken and damaged teeth, headaches, neck and jaw pain. Stress, anxiety, and other problems can cause or exacerbate teeth grinding.
What is an occlusal splint?
An occlusal splint is an acrylic guard fitted to either the upper or lower teeth. It is made for use at night. Although wearing an occlusal splint may not stop you from grinding or clenching, it does relieve some of the pressure on the jaw joint as well as protect your teeth against further wear and chipping.
