A bite splint (also known as a night guard), is a protective device fitted to your teeth to prevent dental injury from bruxism, a common condition where a patient clenches or grinds their teeth together. Often, they do this without knowing, particularly while sleeping.
Bruxism can cause up to 80 times the normal amount of wear and tear on your teeth resulting in symptoms such as headaches, jaw pain, muscle tightness, and broken teeth. A bite splint is typically worn at night to reduce teeth grinding, relieving the symptoms and protecting your teeth from damage.
