A bite plate is an acrylic tray that can be worn day or night. It prevents the upper teeth from coming into contact with the lower teeth and helps the jaw muscles relax.
During a consultation to treat a migraine or bruxism problem, your dentist and/or sleep professional will recommend either a bite plate or a night deprogrammer, depending on your needs. Both are made of acrylic, custom-made and offer several benefits for the health of your teeth and oral-facial structures:
- iThey absorb some of the muscle force from bruxism and clenching of the teeth,
- They relax the muscles of the jaw to relieve tension,
- They relieve the jaw joints (TMJ) and reduce pain,
- They limit the premature wear of teeth and the progression of tooth and bone deterioration,
