Bruxism, or the grinding of teeth either forward and backward or side to side, is a common dental problem. It most often occurs during sleep - individuals suffering from bruxism may not notice at first. Common signs and symptoms include:
- Facial and/or jaw pain
- Ear aches
- Jaw stiffness
- Audible grinding sound (often noticed by a sleeping partner)
- Worn down, damaged teeth or cracked fillings
If you are experiencing any of the above signs and symptoms, be sure to stop into Abundant Dental, your trusted Murray dental provider. If not treated, bruxism can lead to extensive tooth and jaw damage. Common causes of bruxism include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Certain medication side effects
- Sleep disorders
- Jaw misalignment
The professionals of Abundant Dental are experienced in treating this common problem. After examining your mouth, your dentist may recommend dental restoration if bruxism has caused you to damage your teeth. After any necessary restoration, you will be fitted with a mouth guard to use during sleep to prevent any future damage. When you need a “dentist near me in Murray” for teeth grinding, visit Abundant Dental.
