Teeth Grinding Relief with Custom Nightguards
Are you suffering from nightly teeth grinding? Studies show that over 30% of Americans are nightly teeth grinders, and half of them have a condition so damaging that it requires treatment. Nightly teeth grinding (Bruxism) will wear down the surface of your tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel, causing pain, sensitivity, and vulnerability to decay. Bruxism patients may also experience: chipped teeth, tooth flattening, cracked tooth enamel, loose or broken fillings, tooth loss, and gum recession. Luckily, Dr. Gerber offers a Tyler Bruxism treatment solution that can help prevent the devastating oral damage caused by nightly teeth grinding. Your Bruxism can be effectively treated to avoid permanent tooth damage.
What Causes Bruxism?
The exact cause of Bruxism is unknown; however, teeth grinding typically accompanies increased stress and anxiety, other sleep disorders, abnormal bites, and other malocclusion issues. The most common symptoms of teeth grinding include:
- dull headaches
- jaw soreness
- teeth that are painful or loose or worn down
- fractured teeth
Does Your Child Have Bruxism?
Teeth grinding is also common in young children. But because their teeth and jaws grow and develop so quickly, their teeth grinding issues usually subside by adolescence. However, treatment may still be required to protect their teeth in the intervening period. While adult Bruxism is most often the result of stress, the same is not always true for childhood Bruxism. The possible causes of teeth grinding in children include:
- irritation in the mouth
- misaligned teeth
