The Best Alternative To A Dentist Made Splint. Made In Italy!
In adults there are many patients with bad habits and parafunctional habits such as bruxism (better known as night grinding). Bruxism is defined as the tendency to clench your teeth during the day and grind their teeth unconsciously and uncontrollably during sleep, when it is impossible to exert conscious control over movements. Bruxism, which can be attributable to stress and nervous tension, is able to cause serious damage to the dental apparatus. The most visible damage is the gradual wearing down of teeth with fractures. Currently there is no pharmacological cure or treatment for Bruxism, except the prevention of excess damage by using a Bite Tray 'made to measure' by a dentist.

Prevention and Cure
The Bite Tray is a protective shield that is worn overnight on the top row of teeth. This will create a protective barrier between the dental arches. Dr. Brux® has measured occlusal thicknesses which help bring the jaw into a resting position. The thickness of the Bite Tray reduces muscle stress and tension during sleep.
Comfortable and Stable
Dr. Brux Bite Tray is made of a biocompatible thermoplastic material, with two assigned degrees of hardness.
The first degree of hardness is the softer of the two. It is used for the portion of the Bite Tray that comes into contact with the outer surface of the teeth and gums. This will give the feeling of stability and comfort. The second degree is the harder one. It is used for support,allowing ease in the movement of teeth during grinding for greater resistance in the deterioration process.
