Involuntary teeth grinding or jaw clenching.

Bruxism causes excessive wear and tear of a patient’s teeth, jaw joints and jaw muscles, this leads to pain in teeth, jaw and jaw joints as well as headaches. If bruxism is not treated with an occlusal splint, it can, over a prolonged period of time, cause considerable damage to the entire nervous system. Splints are worn at night, they are comfortable and allow the nervous-muscular system to relax and rest while protecting teeth and prosthetic products from destructive forces that can cause dental damage.
