Bruxism- Teeth Grinding
Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth.
If you have bruxism, you may unknowingly clench your teeth together during
the day, or clench or grind them at night.
Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism
can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches,
damaged teeth and many other problems.
Often you may have sleep bruxism and be unaware of it until complications
develop, it's important to know the signs and symptoms of bruxism
and to seek regular dental care.
Patients can often find relief when they are fitted for a custom mouth
guard to wear while sleeping. Call West County Dental to schedule an appointment
to see how Dr. Spalitto can help you!
