Night time splints for patients from Pure Smiles Fulham:
We can protect your teeth
A splint is a protective, rubber-like cover that is worn over the teeth and gums during sleep, cushioning them and protecting the teeth from excessive wear and grinding.
If you wake up every morning with a headache, painful jaws and loose teeth, you may be suffering from bruxism. Most people are often unaware that they grind their teeth at night, but in order to prevent more damage a splint is needed.
Mouth splints will last for years, but although they are able to help reduce muscle activity in your jaw at night, they can only control the condition, not cure it.
There could be all sorts of reasons why you grind your teeth, which could be related to stress or anxiety. So, it’s important that you try to relax and get a good night’s sleep. Psychotherapy and hypnotherapy can often successfully be combined with splint treatment.
There are many different splint designs, so your dentist will suggest which is the best for you.
