On The Grind

Do you wake up with dull headaches, vise-like pain, or stiff, sore jaw muscles? If so, you may have a habit of grinding or clenching the teeth called bruxism. Many people are unaware they even do this because it often happens while they are sleeping. However, dental professionals can usually detect signs of wear on your teeth.

Stress, sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, or crooked or missing teeth may cause bruxism. Teeth grinding can cause pain or loosen teeth. Patients can actually grind away parts of their teeth, leaving them with worn surfaces or fractured enamel. Bruxism can not only wear down your teeth and damage dental work, but can also cause aching muscles.

Luckily, treatment for bruxism and any damaged teeth is available. Options include reducing stress, exercises to relax jaw muscles, using a night guard while sleeping, or getting fillings or other dental treatment.

If you think you might be grinding or clenching your teeth, schedule an appointment to talk with us about your symptoms and possible treatment plans at 248-973-8788.  As always, we look forward to providing you with outstanding dental care.

At Caring Smiles Family Dentistry, we love sharing great dental health tips, contests, and special announcements on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Please join us on our journey of changing lives one smile at a time.

If you have any questions about this or any other dental issues, or would like to make an appointment for a dental exam, cleaning, or consultation, please give us a call at 248.973.8788. We are here for you!
