Occlusal splints are specially designed for your teeth and are worn at night to provide protection.

Many people grind their teeth or clench their jaws, especially in their sleep. If you do so regularly, even excessively, this can lead to tooth wear, tooth damage, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and frequently needing fillings.

If you have worn or damaged teeth, it is important to protect them from further wear and damage.

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.

Are you experiencing pain or dysfunction in your jaw or temporomandibular joints (TMJ)?

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.

An occlusal splint looks a bit like a mouthguard, but it serves a very different purpose.

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.

If you think that you might benefit from a custom fitted occlusal splint, please make an appointment to see our expert dental team. We will provide all the professional advice you need.
