Occlusion is the static and functional dynamic interface of masticatory components e.g. temporomandibular joints, masticatory muscles and occluding teeth. There are times the way we bite or chew can cause deflective tooth-contact interferences leading to fracture of teeth and fillings.

Under stressful life events, some individuals may get headaches and migraines originated from a dysfunctional envelope of lower jaw functional movement. Under these circumstances, we may need to prescribe and fabricate an occlusal splint such as relaxation splint, repositioning splint, or on occasions an occlusal pivot to reprogramme the position of the misaligned arch. These splints help relieve stress on your teeth, muscles and jaw and help reduce further headaches and tooth wear.
