Teeth grinding in Hornsby

Many people clench or grind their jaws when they get tense or stressed. But did you know that over the long term, teeth grinding (or bruxism) can cause damage to your teeth and jaw? Piazza dental is pleased to offer our patients treatment for teeth grinding and bruxism.

What Causes Teeth Grinding?

No one is really certain what causes teeth grinding, but some possibilities include crooked or lost teeth, a misaligned or abnormal bite, highly stressful situations and even disorders like sleep apnoea.

What Are The Signs Of Teeth Grinding?

Unless someone else lets you know about it, there’s a big chance you won’t even know that you’re grinding your teeth in your sleep.

Sometimes bruxism can present with:

● Jaw pain or pain in the face or neck
● Flattened fractured, chipped or loose teeth
● Pain in the temples or a light headache, particularly in the mornings
● Worn down tooth enamel

How Can Teeth Grinding Be Managed?

Teeth grinding and its consequent wear and tear on the teeth can be prevented by wearing a splint. Your dentist will take a mould of your mouth and create a custom guard for you to wear at night.

You may also want to consider some stress reduction therapies for when you are awake. Become more aware of when your jaw becomes tense during the day.
If you find yourself clenching your jaw when you’re stuck in traffic or in a stressful situation, position the tip of your tongue between your top and bottom teeth to relax the jaw muscle.
