Woman waking up with jaw painThis condition is referred to as bruxism. Often, it’s related to higher stress levels. Since it occurs during your sleeping hours, it’s difficult to get control of. About one of every six people suffer from clenching or grinding their teeth. The majority of sufferers are women. If you don’t get the attention you need, you may end up with:

  • A limited range of motion in the jaw
  • Broken dental restorations such as crowns and fillings
  • Chipped, flat or worn teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Muscle tension
  • Pain when chewing food
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder

Finding a Solution to Your Pain

When you contract your jaw muscles, it can be due to a great deal of stress. It may also be that you’ve formed a habit and cannot stop doing so on your own. Both causes are difficult to deal with by yourself. Our dental experts can recommend the proper treatment.

One of the most common options to address bruxism is called a splint. It looks similar to a mouthguard you would wear for sport or a retainer you would wear after completing orthodontic treatment. It slips over your teeth, covering them comfortably and allowing you to speak. The splint prevents your teeth from being able to touch so that they can’t be further worn down.

Further Answers For Bruxism Sufferers

We may also speak to you about massage therapy, physical therapy or other health practitioners that we think can help your condition. Bruxism can also be a sign that you have sleep apnoea. If we suspect this may be the case, we’ll discuss the proper treatment for you.
