Occlusal guards, bite planes, night guards and occlusal splints are devices provided to help with TMJ dysfunction, bruxism, jaw clenching, and protection for new dental restorations. In fact, for some time now, an occlusal splint has been considered the best way to treat TMJ dysfunction due to its effectiveness and non-invasiveness. Most recently, an occlusal splint can be used for patients who are diagnosed with sleep apnea since it can be designed to reposition the lower jaw and help create unobstructed airflow. The devices act as an anode, the acrylic surface that the opposing dentition touches will wear before the natural tooth structure.
An occlusal splint device is tailor-made from acrylic resin and is intended to guide the jaw while it is moving front-to-back and side-to-side. As such, they are a perfect dental solution for people who struggle with harmful habits, as well as those who require additional support for their jaw.
