Whether it is an involuntary action or simply a bad habit, grinding your teeth can lead to an unbalanced bite and worn teeth. Day to day stress and worry leads many people to damaging their teeth every night without even realising, as they clench their jaws and grind their teeth.
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.
