DENTAL SPLINTS AGAINST GRINDING (BRUXISM), TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT PROBLEMS AND CMD

Dental Splints For Grinding Problems

Grinding (Bruxism)  
Cause and Consequences

Protect your teeth and your temporomandibular joint 

There are many potential reasons for teeth grinding. 

The most common assumption is that it is related to stress or depression. 

But there are also indications of the wrong bite, which can also lead to bruxism.

Due to the enormous load grinding creates, the tooth surface is worn quicker than is usual. Teeth break, fillings fall out, crowns burst. Often it is not the chewing surfaces or incisal edges but also the tooth necks that are affected. If the substance can withstand this stress, the pressure continues into the temporomandibular joint. In extreme cases, permanent structural changes to bones, and ligaments can occur. 

Severe pain can occur in muscles and teeth, which can spread to tremendous facial pain. 

The grinding splint represents an initial therapy. It protects the teeth and the joint in the first instance. 

Physiotherapy with relaxation exercises can also help. 

As a rule, at least 2 appointments are necessary. 

  1. Investigation and education 
  2. Scan (usually after the examination) 
  3. Inserting the splint
