Teeth Grinding or Bruxism

Comfy Dental Mandurah – Teeth Grinding or Bruxism

Open 7 Days

Most people grind and clench their teeth from time to time. Occasional teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, does not usually cause harm, but when teeth grinding occurs on a regular basis, the teeth, gums, and muscles can be damaged.

Dental General Dentistry

The majority of grinding often occurs during sleep, and for this reason, many people are unaware that they do it. Symptoms such as a dull, constant headache, a sore jaw, ear pain, and sensitive teeth are indicators of bruxism.

Many times, people learn that they grind their teeth by their loved one who hears them grinding at night.

Don’t Ignr Bruxismore you

Constant teeth grinding can cause cracking of the teeth, eventual loss of teeth, and even significant wearing down of teeth.

It’s important to visit your dentist if you suspect that you regularly grind your teeth.

If you’ve been told that you’re grinding your teeth, we can examine your mouth and jaw for signs of tooth grinding/clenching and recommend individualised treatment options to help you stop, and to protect your teeth from any further damage.

Solutions for Treating Bruxism

Our most common method for treating tooth grinding and clenching is the fabrication of a grinding splint. This is a custom made dental mouthguard that commonly fits over your top teeth and is mainly worn when you sleep.

It protects your teeth from the constant grinding motion and may even reduce your teeth grinding by subconsciously training you not to do it due to the presence of the sleeping mouthguard.

Custom Mouthguards Perth

A dental mouthguard can protect your teeth in other circumstances such as contact sports.

A sports mouth guard helps absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face, which might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw.

At Comfy Dental Mandurah, we recommend and provide a variety of different mouth guards for all ages and types of sport being played. You can also choose any combination of colour or design that you wish.
