Here’s a scenario – you have a patient that comes in with pain in their jaw, sore muscles, chips all along their front teeth and wear facets across all their back teeth. As dentists, we’re trained to immediately think of issuing a splint to protect the teeth. But what do we do when that doesn’t work, and is issuing a splint always the right solution?
In this episode Dr Damian Teo sheds some light on this tricky situation and shares the three reasons he would use a splint. This is a special addition to the Bruxism, TMD & OSA trilogy we’ve already released with Dr Damian Teo earlier on in the year, so don’t forget to flick back to make sure you’re up to date.
