"After having trouble with serveally grinding my teeth whilst asleep I went to see Mr & Mrs Nicoll at their surgery. After a quick and informative examination I was fitted for a transparent splint (think that's it's name). Since using this it's been such a help and quite life changing as I suffered some pain in the mornings as a result. I couldn't thank them enough as I would like to have my teeth in 10 years.
