Bruxism is an involuntary habit normally caused by stress that consists of clenching and grinding the teeth, causing jaw pain, ear pain, frequent headaches and tooth wear.
In the initial phase, the enamel of the teeth wears away, leaving it prone to cavities, causing sensitivity to cold, heat and sweets. If the wear continues, it can reach the dental pulp, causing tooth loss.
The bruxism splint or occlusal guard prevents teeth wear in patients with this condition.
At GNUX Dental our proposal is completely digital, the patient’s mouth is scanned, the splint is designed in special software and manufactured in a 3D printer, as a result a high precision and quality splint is obtained, very comfortable for the patient.
