Michigan Splints

What is a Michigan Stabilisation Splint?

A Michigan splint is a hard acrylic guard custom made to fit over the biting surfaces of your upper teeth. The splint allows free and smooth movement of your upper teeth over your lower teeth whilst helping your muscle to break the habit of clenching or grinding.
It is a special appliance made specifically to fit your teeth and requires a high level of clinical skill. It is also successfully used in protecting the teeth from extreme bruxism and when large fillings and crowns are present
