Bruxism, a condition involving the grinding and clenching of teeth, poses a significant risk to your dental health, especially during sleep. Regrettably, it often goes unnoticed or misdiagnosed, as it is just one of the multiple reasons for tooth wear and often occurs without being noticed.
If left untreated, bruxism can lead to various oral health problems that adversely impact both appearance and well-being. These problems include the likes of:
- Broken, chipped and worn teeth
- Broken oral appliances, including dentures
- Headaches, migraines and earaches
- Ear ringing (tinnitus)
- TMJ disorders
- Soreness in the jaw joints
- Tension and pain in the head, neck and shoulder muscles
- Tightness in the jaw muscles
Thankfully, several treatments are available to combat bruxism. These treatments are aimed at stopping teeth grinding and clenching. Treatment options range from relaxation exercises to oral devices like night guards and NTI-tss devices. A comprehensive examination of your mouth will allow our dentists to determine the most effective treatment for managing your bruxism. Once the condition is under control, we will focus on restoring your smile’s beauty and health.
