Are You Grinding Away Stress? Let us Help!
Your teeth may be getting the brunt of your stress and anxiety. Teeth grinding (and/or clenching) can not only effect your teeth but also surrounding areas. Stressful situations, sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, and crooked or missing teeth may be responsible for this condition is known as bruxism.
Symptoms that indicate you may be grinding your teeth include frequent headaches, a sore jaw, facial pain, worn or fractured tooth enamel, loose teeth and even earaches. We can also diagnose bruxism by looking for unusual wear spots on your teeth.
How is bruxism treated? Depending on what is causing your bruxism, we may recommend different treatment options. One option we may suggest is a custom made night- guard to wear while you sleep.
If you suspect you are grinding your teeth, a dental examination in our office can determine the best treatment for you.
