Bruxism: A,B,C, And D!

Sorting out what to make of bruxism disorder and why it’s happening can most certainly be confusing at first. The more you learn, however, the easier it becomes to understand why the problem is likely affecting you, what bruxism really is, and why it’s pretty important to see us for bruxism treatment. Why not try out a simple way to organize the details? It’s easy as A, B, C, D…

A Is For…

Alignment Problems May Contribute

When you have a naturally misaligned smile, the fact that your teeth on top and your teeth on bottom don’t line up correctly can make you a more likely person to end up with bruxism disorder. The good news is that aligning your teeth may help significantly in controlling this issue.

B Is For…

Bite Problems May Contribute, Too

It’s not just your natural alignment that may have something to do with your bruxism. It has a lot to do with the way top and bottom teeth fit together in other ways. Did you know that your grinding and clenching may be the result of poor dental work or missing teeth? See us for a checkup, so we may determine whether this is one factor in your bruxism disorder.

C Is For…

Chronic Means It’s Ongoing

Remember that bruxism disorder is chronic. This doesn’t mean that you are performing the grinding or clenching intentionally. However, it does mean that it’s not something that just happens every now and then. It’s consistent and ongoing, which is why seeking treatment for bruxism is essential!

D Is For…

Damage Will Happen

When you don’t treat bruxism disorder, damage will follow. Remember that the significant force and pressure brought on by your powerful jaws can cause all sorts of problems, including cracks, little fissures, loose teeth, and even worn chewing surfaces.
