Abstract
Occlusion related disorders lead to great suffering to the patients and are a big challenge for dentists. Occlusal conditions such as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) diseases and disorders refer to a multifarious and poorly assented set of conditions, characterised by pain in the area of the jaw and associated muscles leading to limitations in the normal functions of speech, facial expression and mastication, thereby hindering the normal life of the individual. Diagnosis of these disorders becomes difficult as the presenting symptoms are varied. Oral splint therapy has been used for many years and found to be very effective in treating patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. The design of the occlusal splint and the functions it provides marks an example in the art and science of dentistry. Thus splints provide non-invasive therapy and are a promising treatment once the cause of occlusal related disorders are identified.

Basics in oral splint therapy, its applications in various conditions, treatment options and appliances available which have been reported in the literature for the treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and the fabrication of splints have been discussed in this review.
