Mount Pleasant Sports Guards

Guards, Bite Appliances

Enamel, the outermost layer of your teeth, is the hardest natural material produced by your body. Despite the strength, your teeth are still vulnerable to damage. Bruxism, or tooth grinding, can occur during the day or at nighttime. The extreme force generated during bruxism episodes can lead to many problems, including premature tooth wear, jaw pain, tooth sensitivity or muscle discomfort.

Bite Appliances

Bite appliances, or occlusal splints, can help alleviate the symptoms brought on by bruxism. Through careful treatment planning and analysis of your bite, an occlusal split can be fabricated to protect your teeth from the harmful effects of bruxism.

Bite appliances can be made from a variety of materials, and different appliances can be fabricated based on your exact symptoms. At Richards & Ribitch Dentistry, our dentists do not take a “one size fits all” approach to your pain and discomfort. Our appliances are custom made to give the best result.
