How Tooth Grinding Affects You

How Tooth Grinding Affects YouBruxism is a common dental health issue that can be associated with stress, anxiety, stomach problems or misalignments. It usually occurs at night and is characterized by tooth grinding, clenching or biting. Many people are unaware of their habit unless a partner notices and mentions it. Our dentist may also notice signs of tooth grinding at your next checkup.

Some of the biggest problems associated with bruxism are linked to the damage that it can do to your teeth. Some of the earliest problems include chipped or excessively worn teeth. Restorations may fracture, break or wear out long before the average lifespan. Gums can become inflamed, and teeth may be prone to infections. Because the pressure exerted on the teeth can be significant, bruxism sufferers can develop symptoms of TMJ disorders, including jaw pain and headaches. Over time, teeth can even become loose and may be more prone to infection or tooth loss.

Treatment can help alleviate the symptoms and reduce the risks to your dental health. Dr. Shamoiel will evaluate your teeth and determine the most appropriate treatment plan. A night guard can be used to alleviate the stress of the grinding and clenching. We customize these guards for the most comfortable fit and best results. Some patients may need to undergo cognitive behavioral therapy, make lifestyle changes or take medication to address any underlying conditions. Contact our office today to find out more or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sharon Shamoiel, our Thousand Oaks dentist.
