Do You Wake Up With Jaw Pain?
What Is Bruxism?
Many people grind their teeth for various reasons, ranging from stress to sleep issues, but no doubt, teeth grinding is not good for your teeth, and you should seek a dentist’s advice to attempt to reduce or prevent it.
Bruxism refers to excessive grinding of the teeth or unnecessary clenching of the jaw, generally done while you sleep. If you wake up with tension headaches, facial pain, or jaw pain, you may be experiencing bruxism. Many patients aren’t even aware they are clenching their jaws or grinding their teeth at night, until your dentist starts to see significant tooth enamel loss or damage to existing dental restorations.
Stress, anxiety, and tension in your daily life can cause you to grind your teeth together or clench the teeth during the day or unconsciously at night which diminishes tooth enamel, wears down the chewing surfaces of the teeth, and can cause a cracked, chipped tooth, filling or crown.
Bruxism Treatment Options
The treatment plan that Dr. Bharathi will recommend for your teeth grinding will depend on the underlying cause and how severe the damage to your teeth is. Treating the teeth and preventing further harm is always our focus. Fortunately, a non-invasive custom-fabricated personalized nightguard can help reduce or eliminate future damage to your teeth.
Symptoms associated with teeth grinding should not be ignored. Grinding can harm the teeth and necessitate expensive future reconstructive work. If you grind your teeth, you may also be susceptible to developing a more severe condition called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), which involves severe jaw pain and tissue and joint damage.
