Many people have experienced teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism), especially during sleep. Sleep apnoea symptoms are also occurring more frequently in Australia. Many more people suffer from headaches, neck aches and jaw aches. Some people can wake up with jaw muscle tension or pain and feel tired all day. Occlusal dental splints can be prescribed to help each of these problem areas.
The Snowy Mountains Dental holistic approach is: if you wake up with a headache, neck ache or jaw ache, or you have been told that you clench and grind your teeth (sometimes your partner can hear this!), then consult with our dental team as there are always ways to help. You may benefit from a splint as part of your treatment.
