Bruxism: Teeth Grinding & Clenching

Bruxism which is the clenching and/or grinding of teeth (mainly nocturnally) is thought to affect over 50% of the population to some degree. Sadly, many of these people go undiagnosed because a) they don’t realise they are actually doing this and b) symptoms such as headaches, neck aches, jaw pain and poor sleep quality which this activity leads to are not usually associated with the condition so are often not mentioned by sufferers to their dentist.

In many cases, a simple dental splint the SCi (Sleep Clenching Inhibitor) which is worn just for sleep can reduce the intensity of Bruxism and therefore bring much needed relief from the associated symptoms.
