Many people are unaware that they grind their teeth because they do it while they sleep. Their facial muscles may be sore and the jaw joints tender. Besides causing discomfort, grinding can eventually damage dental restorations and may loosen teeth. Bruxism also can cause damage to the temporomandibular joints—the joints on each side of the mouth that connect the lower jaw to the skull. As the tooth enamel is worn away, the underlying layer of dentin may be exposed. This causes the tooth to become sensitive to temperature changes and pressure.
Drs. Eskeland and Ettefagh may recommend one or more treatments, such as a nightguard that can be worn while sleeping. Custom- made by our doctors from soft material to fit your teeth, the nightguard slips over the teeth in one jaw and prevents contact with the opposing teeth. The nightguard relieves some of the pressure of grinding and clenching.
Grinding is a common occurrence for many people at some time or another. If you routinely grind your teeth, call Regents Dental to make an appointment!
