TMJ Treatment
Dental Care Bridgewater is home to some of the most experienced TMJ dentists in New Jersey, ready to assist TMJ sufferers with any head, neck or facial pain due to their bite.

Occlusal splints (also called bite splints, bite planes, or night guards) are removable dental appliances carefully molded to fit the upper or lower arches of teeth. They are used to protect tooth and restoration surfaces and manage TMJ dysfunction. People prone to nocturnal bruxism, or nighttime clenching, should routinely wear occlusal splints at night.

Splint
Occlusal splints are typically made of a heat-cured acrylic resin. Soft acrylic or light cured composite, or vinyl splints may be made more quickly and cheaply, but are not as durable, and are more commonly made for short-term use. Soft splints are also used for children, because normal growth changes the fit of hard splints.
