It provides secondary relief to the jaw joints, jaw and neck muscles. A bed rail can also be used to avoid the wear and tear of teeth during teeth grinding. Bed rail is a clear plastic horseshoe-shaped splint about 4-5 mm thick. It is often placed in the upper jaw and used when sleeping.
Sometimes when the bite is uneven, you have to do bite grinding or build up the teeth by making porcelain crowns.
