Belmont, MA Dentist

A bite plate is an acrylic piece molded to your child’s teeth and is intended to be worn day or night to help prevent the top teeth from coming in contact with the bottom teeth.

If your child suffers from bruxism (grinding and/or clenching of the teeth) this is a ideal solution to help absorb some of the stress put on the teeth.

A bite plate can also relax the jaw muscle and ease tension. Another benefit is that this appliance will limit the progression of decay caused by damage to the teeth.

If you are concerned about broken or missing teeth, premature wearing, tooth sensitivity, headaches, or disturbed sleep, contact our office to schedule an appointment today.
