A night appliance:
Its a custom made acrylic with a wire sub-structure mould of your ideal bite, (correct vertical dimension, mandible down & forward and in a centralised position).
Since wearing mine I am sleeping like a baby again.
When I spoke with my TMJ guy he was saying that if the bite is 'off' we will try to even it down when we are asleep, this is why we grind. The night appliance is like a traffic cop or something.
