Teeth Grinding Treatment


Bruxism, known as grinding of teeth during sleep, is one of the discomforts caused by stressful city life. If Bruxism, which affects the jaw muscles in the short term and causes the teeth to wear in the long term, is not prevented, the damage to the teeth may increase day by day. The first thing people with teething problems should do is to use a night plate. The teeth clenching problem can be minimized with the plates used at night by patients who complain of jaw and headache complaints during the day.

What Causes Teeth Clenching?

The problem of clenching teeth can be caused by environmental factors as well as by personal factors in general. Morphological factors such as a defective jaw structure, psychological causes such as stress and anxiety disorders, neurological causes such as brain traumas, sleep disorders, drug side effects, general emotional personality, stress experienced during the day, and factors such as unbalanced nutrition can cause the problem of bruxism. While some people may experience teeth grinding during each sleep, some people may experience it from time to time.

What Are the Symptoms of Bruxism Known as Clenching?

It can be difficult to detect the clenching problem by the person himself during sleep. However, some patients report that they can wake up to their teeth grinding sounds from time to time. Stories of the patients by the people they live with or some discomforts after sleep help to recognize some symptoms of teeth clenching problem. Patients who unconsciously clenched their teeth during sleep, in other words, grind their teeth, complain of a headache in the anterior ear region the next day. Fatigue in the facial muscles, neck and even back pain experienced in the morning can be among the symptoms of the teeth grinding problem.

Does Bruxism Damage Teeth?

Commonly known as teeth grinding, bruxism is among the common problems faced by people; There is a sensitivity problem that occurs as a result of the wear of the teeth over time. As a result of this sensitivity to cold or heat, the living comfort of people can be adversely affected. Untreated tooth grinding problem can even cause tooth fractures over time. The clenching problem, which can cause recessions in the gums, can also lead to jaw hangers.

Is Teeth Grinding Treatment Possible?

Bruxism, which is detected by Dental Group Hospitadent specialists, can be minimized with a night plate. Night plaque not only prevents teeth from eroding each other, but also minimizes side movements that result in grinding. Thus, the damage to the teeth is minimized during the treatment process.

What are the Problems That May Be Encountered During the Treatment Process?

The underlying cause of the clenching problem must be investigated. After the teeth are protected in the first place, identifying the stress source that causes teeth grinding can provide a permanent solution to the problem. During the treatment process, muscle relaxant drugs can be taken to relieve pain in the extremely damaged jaw structure. In cases where no progress has been made with the use of plaque, radiological imaging tests may be requested from the patients for advanced treatment methods. When teeth clenching problems caused by incorrect dental treatments are detected, the most appropriate dental treatment can be applied to the patients and the underlying cause of the problem can be completely eliminated.

During the treatment process that the specialist dentist deems appropriate, damage to the teeth is prevented.
