Does Bruxism Do Much Damage?
Posted on 5/23/2018 by Dr. Justin Lai
Before we tell you whether Bruxism does much damage, we will explain what this means. Bruxism is better known as teeth grinding and there are several reasons why you can suffer from this condition. If you clench your teeth while awake or grind them when sleeping, you need to be aware of some of the symptoms that you can get checked out at our office. Bruxism Symptoms Most people suffer from sleep Bruxism, which can range from annoying to painful. In some instances, the grinding is so loud, that it can wake you and your partner. Grinding your teeth can lead to more serious oral and health issues such as fractured teeth, tooth loss, receding gums, pain, jaw disorders, and frequent headaches. In addition, according to one study, the rate at which enamel erodes in people who suffer from Bruxism is much faster than those who don't. While dentists don't fully understand why some people grind their teeth, studies suggest it can be due to stress and anxiety or other conditions such as sleep apnea. Surprisingly, Bruxism is common in young children, but it becomes less common as they age. Can Bruxism be Cured? There is no cure for Bruxism other than trying to reduce the stress and anxiety in your life with relaxation, exercise or other methods. There are also mouth guards. Our office can discuss the use of a night mouth guard, which is like those used by athletes. We can make a custom guard that will fit your mouth comfortably and prevent you from grinding and damaging your teeth while you sleep. If you were wondering whether Bruxism can do much damage, you can discuss it with our dentist at your next six-months checkup and we can give you additional information on mouth guards and other jaw exercises to relieve symptoms....
