Occlusal Plaque

These days, dentists often notice tooth breakdown as a result of wear more frequently than due to decay.

It is for this reason that it is essential to establish good masticatory function by restoration of damaged tooth surfaces, replacement of missing teeth and with protection by mouthguards in bruxers (teeth grinding) or those suffering from parafunctional habits (hyperfunction of the masticatory system during sleep).

Mouthguards permit relief of muscle pain, support to joints in the jaw, and prevents accelerated wear and tooth fractures; all conditions related to untreated grinding or clenching during sleep.
