What Is Bruxism?

Bruxism is a term used to describe teeth clenching and grinding. Many individuals grind their teeth, a lot of times unconsciously during the course of the day or while they sleep. Teeth grinding is often the result of stress and anxiousness or a crooked bite and specific pharmaceuticals. Even though occasional teeth grinding generally is not an issue, regular teeth grinding can harm and deteriorate your teeth and may induce unpleasant conditions, like TMD (temporomandibular disorder), that affect the jaw. At Dali Dental, Dr. Dao Pham offers diagnostic assessments and effective therapy solutions for teeth grinding and clenching, like protective mouth guards to wear during the night, BOTOX® injections to relax the muscles, and more. Contact our office in Plano, TX to find out more, and request a visit to discuss bruxism and guard the health of your mouth.

What Are Some Treatments For Bruxism?

Based on your unique concerns, Dr. Pham will craft an individualized teeth-grinding treatment program. If tooth damage is present, such as broken or cracked teeth, these situations will need to be taken care of first. The typical treatment for bruxism entails personalized night guards to wear at night. The night guards shield your teeth from impairment during the night. Other options include NTI-tss devices, which are fitted to the front of the teeth to limit the molars from touching. In addition to these treatment options, BOTOX cosmetic injections could be used to help relax the muscles enough to prevent grinding at night but not impact daily activities, like chewing and speaking. Additionally, we may suggest anxiety and stress management to aid in the reduction of teeth grinding and enrich overall health.

About Us
How can I know if I'm grinding my teeth while I sleep?

Grinding your teeth while you sleep is very ordinary. In many cases, patients don't know it is even occurring. If you've noticed unexplained damage to your teeth or are experiencing head pain, earaches, or jaw tension when you wake up, it might be worth scheduling a consultation to see if you have bruxism.

Can I just use an athletic mouth guard for bruxism?

Athletic mouth guards are intended to be worn for a short period while you're participating in sports. Wearing a sports mouth guard throughout the night may help shield your teeth from the damage bruxism causes, but they're not designed to endure persistent clenching and grinding every night. That's why Dr. Pham and our team recommend using a custom night guard. These pieces are crafted using a model of your teeth for an enhanced fit and comfort. They're also typically better at withstanding symptoms of bruxism.

If I get a night guard for bruxism, how long will I need to wear it?

The answer to this question depends on the underlying causes of your teeth grinding. Patients who only grind their teeth during stressful times in their lives may need to wear their guard during those periods. Others may need to wear their night guard every night. During your consultation and throughout every visit, Dr. Pham will monitor the condition of your teeth and help you determine if a guard is still needed.
