Protection from Bruxism Fees page
Below you will find information pertaining to Bruxism treatment and fees.
Bruxism is when the upper and lower teeth are held together tightly or grind together, typically, this occurs when one is asleep, however, it can also occur during the daytime. Bruxism can cause irreversible damage to the enamel on the teeth as well as leaving chips, cracks, discolouration and in extreme circumstances, tooth fractures. These problems can be accompanied by symptoms like headaches, tinnitus, toothache, and pain in the jaw if left untreated. Alternative solutions include Botox, which inhibits movement within the area, allowing the jaw muscle to relax rather than undergoing excessive movements. Actively changing stressors such as your lifestyle can also reduce the likelihood of you grinding your teeth.
Booking an appointment to seek out treatment can prevent any more damage from occurring. A simple nightguard is a cost-effective alternative to the Michigan splint. This lasts around 1-2 years and protects your teeth from being worn down if you grind your teeth but provides only limited relaxation for your joints.
Cost: From £400
A Michigan splint is comprised of a harder and more durable substance, the splint rests in the gaps of your bite and typically covers every gap in your bite to prevent grinding. The Michigan splint is longer lasting and has a more relaxing feel on the TMJ (Temporomandibular joint).
Cost: From £900
