Times Where an Oral Splint is Necessary
Posted on 10/15/2018 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
If you hurt your leg in an accident, you may think to put a splint on it. That is a type of medical tool people are familiar with. They may not realize there are other types of splints that can help other parts of the body. Most people have probably not heard about oral splints. They do not know what they are or how they can help someone. What Is It? Unlike the splints to treat a broken leg, the oral splints do not relay on two sticks tied together. Oral splints are also known as occlusal splints or orthotic devices. They are a specially designed mouthguard that can help people deal with w different oral health problems. The design of the oral splint depends on the reason that it is put in place. The splint is custom fit to the person's mouth and teeth and is typically worn when a person sleep. Who Needs an Oral Splint?There are some conditions that an oral splint is effective at treating. The first is for people who grind their teeth when they sleep. Also known as bruxism, teeth grinding can damage the teeth, the gums and can cause other problems with oral health. The oral splint can protect the teeth from the damage caused by teeth grinding. Another reason for an oral splint is to help with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). TMJ is the result of problems with the muscles in the jaw and can cause pain or discomfort. An oral splint can help readjust the jaw and relieve the pain caused by TMJ. Oral splints can also reposition the jaw to improve airflow. This is useful for people who suffer from sleep apnea. People can survive the issues of bruxism, TMJ and sleep apnea without the help of oral splints, but that does not mean they should. These conditions can create a variety of problems and the oral splints is one way to avoid them. For more information about his and other oral health issues, contact the dental professionals at our offices....
