Protecting Vulnerable Teeth With Bite Guards and Splints

Bite guards are made of hard acrylic and are typically worn overnight in order to protect teeth from night grinding or night clenching. Teeth and surrounding structures can be damaged by heavy grinding or clenching, therefore a custom-made night guard can be made to fit on the lower teeth or the upper teeth.

Some patients have pain in the jaw joint areas, pain in the “chewing” muscles, headaches, and/or popping/clicking of the jaw joints. These patients would also benefit from a custom-made splint that will help to take pressure off of the joint spaces and help to reduce muscle pain and headaches. If you are experiencing any discomfort, schedule an appointment for a dentist near you in the Shawnee, Kansas City Area.
