Bite Guards Houston TX

Preventing Teeth Grinding

mouthguardOcclusal splints (also called bite splints, bite planes, or night guards ) are removable dental appliances carefully molded to fit the upper or lower arches of teeth.

They are used to protect your teeth and restoration surfaces, manage mandibular (jaw) dysfunction, and stabilize the occlusion or create space prior to restoration procedures. People prone to nocturnal (nighttime) clenching & grinding and TMJ disorders may benefit from an occlusal splint. Occlusal splints (night guards) are typically made of a heat-cured acrylic resin.

Dr. McRay and Dr. Robbins are happy to discuss if splint therapy is appropriate for you. Contact us today at The Dentists at Houston Westchase Phone Number 832-830-8226 to schedule an appointment to learn more.
