BITE GUARD BRUXISM APPLIANCES

BITE GUARD BRUXISM APPLIANCES

TEETH GRINDING SOLUTIONS FROM HOUSTON FAMILY DENTIST

Bruxism refers to a condition characterized by nighttime teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Most often caused by lifestyle and psychological factors such as anxiety, stress, caffeine consumption, and unresolved anger, bruxism can cause soreness in the jaw, face, and neck as well as worn down tooth enamel. Left untreated, these symptoms can worsen, causing migraines, TMJ disorders, and an increased risk of tooth decay.

How Can Bruxism Appliances Improve My Health? 

Because bruxism occurs at night, many sufferers remain unaware of the condition and may have simply become accustomed to their jaw pain and headaches. Luckily, when you come in for a checkup and cleaning with Dr. Deborah Gennero, she will identify the distinctive patterns of enamel wear and suggest treatment options. In most cases, symptoms of bruxism can be successfully alleviated by a special appliance called an occlusal splint, or mouth guard. This appliance rests on your teeth while you sleep, reducing the effects of teeth grinding and jaw clenching.

Dr. Gennero may also suggest lifestyle modifications such as a reduction in caffeine intake and relaxation techniques to help address the causes of bruxism. She may suggest bite equilibration to balance out your bite for ideal tooth relationships in all movements.
