What Are Some Teeth Grinding Symptoms
There are a number of symptoms one can experience from teeth grinding such as the following:
- waking with mild or severe headaches
- frequently sore facial muscles
- frequently sore jaw bone
- sensitive teeth
- worn down teeth
- cracked teeth
- gum recession
- TMJ joint disorder
Bruxism is usually associated with any level of stress or anxiety. It’s commonly thought that people only grind their teeth at night but the contrary is true – many people who suffer with bruxism also grind their teeth during the day. Usually those who have bruxism are completely unaware that their grinding their teeth, even when they are awake.
What Are My Options?
If you suffer from bruxism, then you should get fitted for a nightguard. There are different designs to fit the various situations.
You could get a custom made guard, which will act as a buffer and absorb the majority of the biting force. It will protect your teeth from further wear and tear.
Another option for the treatment of bruxism is a splint to reposition your bite correctly or a device to act as a clenching suppression system for when your teeth are grinding.
