Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a condition that can affect the health of your teeth, wearing down the surface and causing jaw pain. If you find yourself clenching your teeth when stressed or have been told you grind your teeth in your sleep, you may suffer from bruxism. While the exact cause of this condition is unknown, you can prevent damage with general dental treatments like a nightguard. At East Cobb Premier Dental, we offer customized dental nightguards for our patients with bruxism.
Your jaw muscles can exert an enormous amount of pressure meant for chewing tough foods. However, when you clench or grind your teeth, this pressure is put directly on the teeth. This can wear down the enamel and even cause cracks or other damage to your teeth. While you can consciously stop clenching when you are awake, it is hard to stop nocturnal teeth grinding. A dental nightguard can reposition your jaw and protect your teeth while you sleep.
Stop Tooth Damage and Jaw Pain
Bruxism can cause extensive damage to your teeth and lead to jaw joint disorders. TMJ or TMD can occur in people with bruxism, adding symptoms such as jaw pain, facial discomfort and jaw function issues. At East Cobb Premier Dental, we can create a customized nightguard that will help prevent this damage to your teeth and jaw joint. We personalize each nightguard so it will fit comfortably and offer protection from the effects of bruxism.
If your sleep partner has revealed that you grind your teeth or you have been waking up with jaw pain, come see us at East Cobb Premier Dental.
