Do you think you may need bruxism treatment in 2016? Do you have any information regarding how we characterize this dental disorder? Allow us to explain: If you need treatment, you are suffering from the involuntary grinding and/or clenching of your teeth. This is something that you may not even recognize you perform until someone says something like, “Hey, why are you making that noise with your teeth?” Rest assured, we offer effective care that is both comfortable and noninvasive, so you can regain your oral health in the New Year.
Are These Symptoms Familiar?
Since you may not notice that you grind your teeth or clench your teeth together – this often occurs when you are sleeping – it is helpful to get to know common symptoms of bruxism. If you can identify with one or more of the following side effects, bruxism treatment may be something that can help you:
- Your teeth hurt
- You teeth feel sensitive
- Some tooth surfaces appear eroded
- You noticed some indented areas along the perimeter of your tongue
- Your jaw joints feel tired or sore
If you suffer from bruxism, you won’t have to figure this out on your own. We will inspect your smile and offer a diagnosis. Moving forward with bruxism treatment will be a breeze – you will simply need to wear an oral device that inhibits your top and bottom teeth from coming into contact with one another (we refer to this as oral appliance therapy).
