    Frequent questions

    Does it only manifest at night?

    80% of the bruxers are nocturnal, and most do not grit their teeth during the day.

    However, there are patients who, during the day, perform certain parafunctional activities (any function other than chewing, swallowing or phonation) with the teeth, which causes more or less considerable wear.

    What is bruxism?

    It is the act of pressing and grinding the teeth against each other, causing them to wear out and irreversibly damaging them.

    How are TMJ disorders treated?

    Our main goal is to relax the muscles involved in TMJ, to restore the lost balance between teeth, muscles and joint.

    One of the most commonly used remedies is the discharge splints since they help to keep these joints in a state of constant relaxation.
