Occlusal splints

The occlusal splints (or the so-called night guards) are used in cases of involuntary teeth grinding (bruxism) most frequently during the night, or voluntary teeth grinding during the awake stage (bruxomania) in order to reduce the wear and tear and protect the teeth tissues, reduce load on the teeth supporting tissues and reduce pain in jaw muscles.

The athletes usually use the occlusal splint only for upper jaw in order to reduce the possibility of causing damage to the teeth and their wear and tear.

The occlusal splints are made of 2mm thick solid rubber material for every patient individually based on the imprint of the lower and upper jaw teeth.
