There are many reasons for clenching or grinding teeth, such as stress, having to concentrate hard, illness, or sleep problems.
An occlusal splint is a thin, hard acrylic guard worn on the upper jaw that covers the biting surface of your upper teeth. It’s generally worn at night time. Although it does not stop the grinding or clenching of the teeth, it stops wear and tear on the teeth and stress on the jaw.
