About one in four people suffer from bruxism.
Your dentist will determine which single treatment or combination of treatments is right for you.
Bruxism can either directly or indirectly cause many problems. Grinding can cause teeth to become painful or loose. Patients can literally grind away parts of their teeth, leaving them with worn surfaces or fractured enamel. Over time teeth become sensitive and patients may experience jaw pain and headaches. Forceful biting when not eating may cause the jaw to move out of proper balance.
