Occlusal Splint (Night Guards)

Occlusal splints (also known as 'night guards' or 'bite splints') are removable dental appliances customised to fit occlusal surfaces of the teeth in either the upper or lower arches.

They are commonly used to protect teeth and restorations, manage and stabilise occlusion, especially in people with night time clenching and grinding habits (nocturnal bruxism).

Occlusal splints are also routinely worn at night to manage and reduce pain from Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD) commonly seen in patients with nocturnal grinding habits.
