Managing symptoms of any disease involves a team of committed professionals. Bruxism is no different. Bruxism is a habit of grinding your teeth. Learning to manage the symptoms of bruxism can be overwhelming, but we can help you. We can help to fit a mouthguard, repair cracked teeth, treat pain in your jaw muscles, as well as other services.
There are several causes for bruxism. People may grind their teeth due to an abnormal bite. Some people grind their teeth because their teeth are misaligned or missing. If this describes you, we can help by discussing options to align your teeth. We are happy to consult with both adults and children. Additionally, we can offer options for your missing or cracked teeth. It is important to take proactive measures as bruxism can lead to more serious problems in the jaw. We can assess your jaw, and if you need a protective mouthguard to wear at night, we can help to custom make one for your mouth. The mouthguard will help to separate your top teeth from your bottom teeth and to keep your teeth in the proper position. The mouthguard will retain your teeth as well as help to protect them from bruxism. Reducing stress is a key component to reducing bruxism. We are happy to talk through ways that you can reduce stress and enjoy your life to the fullest. We can also discuss your sleep habits and other steps you can take to prevent or help treat bruxism.
If you have a problem with grinding your teeth, we can help you manage your symptoms. We offer a variety of services to treat patients with bruxism. Make sure to schedule your next cleaning and exam, and we look forward to discussing what would work for your specific circumstance.
