Occlusion is the study and science of the way we bite, and the way our teeth, muscles and joints interact with each other.
At times the way we bite can cause problems leading to broken teeth and fillings. In certain instances we can also get headaches and migraines related to the way we bite.
Under these circumstances we may need to prescribe a splint such as the NTI occlusional splint from America, or on occasions, we may have to use a full coverage splint which covers the biting surfaces of all your teeth.
These splints then relieve stress on your teeth, muscles and jaw, and help reduce further headaches and tooth wear.
