Temporomandibular joint problems and sleep apnea are becoming more and more frequent in daily consultations because their causes have an important component of stress and reduce the quality of life. Grinding and clenching of the teeth at night and unconsciously is often a consequence of the agitation of our daily life and has negative effects both on the jaw joint and on the teeth themselves due to wear and tear, as well as on the loss of the supporting bone due to the excessive loads to which it may be subjected during sleep. For this reason, the use of night splints and devices that prevent both grinding and clenching can be useful to improve the quality of sleep and general health.
Sleep apnea is the cause of poor sleep, fatigue and sleepiness during the day. It is a pathology associated with age and lifestyle habits (sedentary lifestyle, smoking, obesity) that can be corrected by specific devices for use during the night.
