An occlusal splint is an effective solution. It can be made for either your upper or lower teeth and is normally worn at night. At Road Dental we will design your custom occlusal splint to fit perfectly over your teeth.
In addition to these measures, we do our utmost to set aside an allocated time slot every day when we can perform emergency treatments. This is to ensure that the dental problem is prevented from worsening, and your discomfort is alleviated as quickly as possible. We want you to experience a full recovery in the shortest possible time frame.
At Road Dental, we make custom fitted mouthguards for those participating in sport. A mouthguard is made to protect your teeth and reduce the risk of dental trauma during sport.
An occlusal splint is made to cover the biting surfaces of your teeth. By equally distributing the contact between your teeth, an occlusal splint promotes muscle relaxation. This, in effect, combats pain associated with jaw and TMJ problems. It also serves to protect your teeth from the harmful effects of regularly grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw. The anterior guidance is a result of both anterior tooth position and condylar border movements.
