OCCLUSAL GUARDS, SPLINTS & NIGHTGUARDS

Dr. Williams may recommend a custom occlusal guard if he sees signs of teeth wear beyond that which is expected during normal activity. Often this wear is exaggerated by habits such as nighttime grinding or clenching of your teeth. Many patients experience muscle tightness or pain associated with the jaw joints (the Temporomandibular Joint or “TMJ”). Dr. Williams will be glad to discuss and make recommendations if the signs or symptoms suggest a joint problem.
