Grinding and clenching of teeth have been on the rise in Singapore over the last three years amidst the additional stress of the pandemic, with some dentists seeing more patients presenting with symptoms such as sensitive, cracked and chipped teeth.

This grinding and clenching, known in the dental space as bruxism, can be mitigated with the introduction of dental splints that can help to protect the teeth from further damage. These splints are constructed from a resin, and can often be ridged, bulky and uncomfortable; making them difficult to wear while sleeping.
