Teeth Grinding

FTS-Teeth_Grinding-Section1

Grinding or clenching the teeth – known as ‘bruxism’ – happens for many reasons. It commonly occurs when people feel stressed or when they’re asleep. The habit is associated with disorders like sleep apnoea and can also be a result of crooked teeth or an abnormal bite (where the teeth or jaws are misaligned). Some patients grind their teeth under the influence of stimulants like alcohol, nicotine or recreational drugs, while others experience the condition as a side effect of particular medications.

Untreated teeth grinding can have serious consequences. Teeth may be broken or become sensitive and prematurely worn, sleep can be disturbed and pain can be felt in the head, neck, face and shoulders. An excessively clenched jaw sometimes leads to temporomandibular disorder (TMD), where the jaw clicks, locks or is difficult to open.

Tackling the root cause of teeth grinding is often the best way to alleviate it. That could mean changing your lifestyle choices, seeking professional help to manage sleep disorders or finding mechanisms for coping with stress. Problems like misaligned bites and crooked teeth can be diagnosed by our dentists and treated to improve the way your teeth fit together.

If you habitually grind your teeth or clench your jaw, regular dental check-ups are vital to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. At Face Teeth Smile, we can make you a bespoke mouth guard to wear at night, which reduces pressure on your teeth and jaw, preventing long-term damage to your teeth. Teeth that have been damaged by grinding can be rebuilt using techniques such as composite bonding or porcelain veneers. Visit us for a consultation to discuss the most effective technique for you.
