Mouthguards for bruxism

Mouthguards for bruxism are thin acrylic devices manufactured based on impression of upper and lower jaw.

They are usually worn during sleep.

Indications are bruxism or temporomandibular joint disorder. Dental guards are very effective as they:

  • Relieve from headaches
  • Keep the jaw at rest during sleep
  • Relax the masseter muscles and reduces spasms
  • Protect articulation and tooth wear
