Bite Splint vs. Night Guard—what’s the difference?
At it’s simplest, compare a Dr Scholl’s insert to a custom foot orthotic. In our practice, we only make custom Bite Splints—Dr. Bloom learned from the master. Each is made meticulously so that it is custom fit to your bite—a multi-phase process of fine-tune over a series of visits. It must be made of a hard acrylic for 100% stability, and for most patients designed to wear on your lower arch. Dr Bloom isn’t happy until your custom bite splint is so comfortable that you’ll feel naked sleeping without it. Over 85% of our patients have one—they tell us they sleep sounder, wake up refreshed, headache free, with no tension in their face. We even hear it’s ANTI-AGING!
