At DentArtz, Splint Therapy is a specialized approach to alleviate jaw discomfort and promote optimal oral health. This non-invasive treatment involves the use of a custom-fitted oral splint, which is a removable device worn over the teeth. The splint helps reposition the jaw, reducing strain on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and alleviating symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and teeth grinding. Our experienced team at DentArtz tailors each splint to the unique needs of the patient, ensuring a comfortable fit and effective results. Splint Therapy is a conservative yet impactful solution for managing temporomandibular disorders (TMD), offering relief and restoring harmony to the oral structures.
Splint therapy: Unwind, heal, thrive
How Splint Therapy Works?
Splint Therapy works by providing a stable occlusal surface, altering the positioning of the jaw to minimize stress on the TMJ. The custom-fitted oral splint, often worn during sleep, prevents teeth clenching and grinding, addressing the root causes of TMD. By promoting proper jaw alignment, the therapy reduces muscle tension, alleviates pain, and prevents further damage to the teeth and supporting structures. This non-surgical approach prioritizes patient comfort, allowing them to seamlessly integrate the splint into their daily routine for consistent relief.
