‘Dental occlusion’ is a term used to describe how your teeth meet when you bite together. Your teeth are designed to come together in a specific way for your bite to function properly.
When the muscles and joints of the jaw work together in harmony, it results in a healthy occlusion. When they do not work together this causes a misaligned bite, known as malocclusion
My mum found some leaflets on teeth grinding/clenching at our dentist and gave them to me to read. I then made an appointment to see Stephen at the dentist and he suggested an NTI splint to me he explained it was small piece of plastic which would cover my bottom 4 teeth. This would then stop my back teeth meeting therefore I would no longer grind/clench. I decided to go for it and within a week of wearing it noticed an improvement.
