The best early treatment for grinding and clenching is OCCLUSAL SPLINT. Since most of grinding and clenching is done during a sleep, Occlusal Splint (Night Guard or Day Guard) is recommmended to wear during a sleep. Rarely we grind and clench during the day, but for those patients that does, they need to wear the guard as a Day Guard.
Occlusal Splints, decreases the loading of the Temporalmadibular Joint (TMJ), reduces facial pain and headaches caused by masticatory muscles, imporoves Temporalmadibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD) symptoms and protects occlusal surface of teeth and restorations.
