Relieve the Constant Grind of Teeth Grinding

dca-blog_teeth-grinding-purple-woman

Constant teeth grinding and clenching are signs that you’re suffering from bruxism. It’s a rather common disorder, but it can cause substantial damage to your health and well-being. Discover the best ways to end your struggle.

Causes of Bruxism

For some people, teeth grinding is a response to stress or anger. For others, it’s caused by such dental issues as damaged teeth or a misaligned bite. Regardless of the cause, the harmful habit can occur during the day or at night while you’re sleeping. And bruxism doesn’t only strikes adult; it’s commonly seen in children. Kids tend to experience the problem as their baby teeth start emerging and when their permanent teeth begin coming in. Luckily for children, the problem seems to naturally subside after these two sets of teeth have settled. And for adults, teeth grinding may go away on its own, but it can also be an ongoing issue that requires professional treatment.

Dangers of Teeth Grinding and Clenching

Bruxism can do more damage than you may realize and since it often occurs unconsciously or when you are asleep, you may not realize you have the harmful habit. In chronic cases, teeth clenching can lead to the following medical, dental, and psychological issues:

  • Earaches
  • Headaches
  • Loose teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Worn down tooth enamel
  • Jaw joint disorders like TMJ
  • Soreness in the jaw
  • Jaw joint damage
  • Changes to the face

Solutions for Bruxism

If bruxism becomes too much of a burden, you need to seek treatment. Ask your dentist in Fayetteville about ways to control the problem. The solutions depend on the causes, so you may be referred to a psychologist or sleep specialist for the ideal treatment. But relax and realize that the condition can be easily treated with this wide range of techniques:

  • Learn ways to manage your stress.
  • Get daily exercise to relieve tension.
  • Relax your jaw when tense to keep it in proper position.
  • Teach yourself not to clench your teeth.
  • Get a mouth guard to protect against nighttime teeth grinding and clenching.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol, which can agitate your physical and mental state.
  • Seek psychological counseling to deal with the underlying causes of teeth grinding.
  • Take medication for relaxation or depression.
