bite plate for bruxism or teeth clenching

A bite plate used to treat bruxism, or teeth clenching, that needs to be replaced.

This bite guard (or bite plate) has seen better days and needs to be replaced.  It is far better to wear out a replaceable rubber bite guard than teeth enamel.  Teeth clenching can also damage the gums and bone that surround the teeth creating increased susceptibility to gum disease.
