SPLINT

Splinting your teeth for a dazzling smile!

The word “splint” implies a mouth guard, bite plate, or other sort of oral appliance that a dentist has recommended in the context of splint therapy for TMJ disease. These splints come in both hard and soft varieties, and they can be used to cover some or all of the teeth. Splints are normally formed from an imprint of your teeth and manufactured in a dental lab from strong acrylic resin. The dentist will adjust and reposition the splint when it is created. You will be required to wear the splint as directed (during the day, only at night, or both), as well as to attend any necessary follow-up sessions to assess how the symptoms are improving and have the splint modified as needed. How to take care of the splint properly will be suggested by your dentist.

Let us see how splints help in TMJ

Splints reduce teeth grinding, clenching, and other jaw reflexes that might result in TMJ pain and discomfort by allowing jaw muscles and ligaments to loosen up while being worn.
In addition to bruxism, it is also thought that an underbite or an overbite may contribute to TMJ disease. The jaw may be subjected to additional pressure as a result. However, wearing a splint can assist the bite to be angled into a more ideal position, which can help reduce jaw stress.

TYPES OF SPLINTS

There are two basic types of splints that work, however they can be either firm or soft
and can cover all of the teeth or perhaps just a few of them. They are:

Repositioning Splints

Repositioning splints are made to fix biting occlusion. Using, these splints are worn 24 hours a day.

Stabilisation Splints

Wearing stabilisation splints will stop you from clenching and grinding your teeth. These splints normally only need to be worn at night and cover all of the teeth
