Signs You Need to Treat Your Bruxism


Posted on 4/10/2019 by Scott Redlinger
Signs You Need to Treat Your BruxismBruxism is more commonly known as teeth grinding. It is extremely common, and many people have no idea that they do it. Often the teeth grinding takes place while you sleep, which is why there are signs that we will look for to see if you grind your teeth.

Smooth Teeth

One of the things that we look for to see if you grind your teeth is a smoothness to your teeth. Eating will normally wear down your teeth to some extent, but if someone grinds their teeth they will be more worn down.

Jaw Pain

One of the signs that you might grind your teeth is if you have unexplained pain in your jaw. If you experience it in the morning, that could be a sign that you grind your teeth in your sleep.

Morning Headaches

Like jaw pain, if you often wake up with a headache, it could be because you were grinding your teeth in your sleep. If you get headaches during the day, you might be a daytime teeth grinder.

Dental Treatment

The first thing that you should do to treat your bruxism is to try to reduce your stress level. When someone is stressed, he or she is more likely to be a teeth grinder. If you can reduce your stress, you might be able to take care of the problem.

We know that reducing stress is not always possible. Even with less stress, you may continue to grind your teeth. If that is the case, we have other treatment options. One of the most common is a mouthguard, which will keep you from grinding at night.

Grinding your teeth is more than just an annoying habit. It can lead to serious dental problems and other pain. We would like to help you to put your bruxism behind you for good.
