Bruxism Treatment (Excessive Teeth Grinding and Clenching)
Do you sometimes catch yourself grinding teeth? Do you wake up in the morning to tooth or jaw pain? Are your teeth sensitive? Do you have cracked or worn teeth? You may be excessively clenching or grinding.
This condition, known as bruxism, is very common but can have serious consequences. Clenching and grinding occur more commonly while you are sleeping but can also occur consciously or unconsciously in the daytime. Stress, occlusion, and medications can all factor into the causes of bruxism.
At Gulf Shore Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we will expertly diagnose and recommend treatment based on your individual health concerns.
We offer various types of removable appliances, such as splints and mouth guards. Dr. Haidet creates custom splints, designed to fit your teeth perfectly, making them both comfortable and effective. These devices help protect your teeth from cracks and wear by creating a barrier between your upper and lower biting surfaces. These appliances also decrease tooth sensitivity in many patients.When worn as instructed, this non-invasive treatment can relieve symptoms and allow proper healing.
