If you are suffering from bruxism, you may be experiencing sensitive teeth, chipped teeth, broken fillings, and eroded gums which can lead to bone loss. Most often bruxism is related to stress. At Monterey Dental Centre, we offer multiple solutions for patients suffering from bruxism.
Bruxism can also cause headaches, jaw pain, and earaches. These symptoms are more commonly referred to as a Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder or dysfunction. When diagnosed early, bruxism and TMJ disorders can be treated before they cause damage to the teeth, and many patients notice an immediate reduction in their symptoms after starting splint therapy.
After an extensive exam and patient history, we will formulate a plan that is aimed to help resolve bruxism issues. Our office can help to evaluate your symptoms, devise a treatment plan, and work with you to relieve the discomfort of bruxism.
