What is Bruxism and Teeth Grinding Causes?
Teeth grinding is clinically referred to as bruxism. It is the act of consciously or unconsciously clenching your teeth and can range from mild to severe. Bruxism affects both the teeth and all of the structures near it, including your head.
Sleep bruxism is classed as a sleep-related movement disorder. Those with sleep bruxism are more likely to snore or have breath stoppages such as sleep apnea. Some cases are more likely to be severe enough to damage teeth, or produce headache or jaw disorders.
Bruxism is more often the result of stress and attention. Knowing the symptoms of brutism is important so that timely dental care can prevent more serious complications.
Teeth are put under enormous pressure which can wear away the enamel leading to exposed dentin and eventually teeth breakage. Bruxism is particularly bad if you have expensive dental work as grinding your teeth can destroy dental work as well as your natural teeth.

Diagnosing Teeth Grinding
Your dentist will check for signs of bruxism; including dental abnormalities, the condition of teeth and underlying bone (using an X-ray) and the tenderness of jaw muscles. They will also ask you questions about your sleeping habits, general dental health, and physical health. A dental exam may also detect other conditions such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, or other dental disorders. Further testing can be done by a sleep specialist, such as a sleep assessment, or measurement of jaw muscle activity while asleep.
Treatment Options for Teeth Grinding and Bruxism
If treatment is required, it could involve dental options, other therapies, or medication.
If necessary, our Dentists at Orchard Dental will create a customized mouthguard for tooth and enamel protection. This ensure the surfaces of your teeth are protected from further injury. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and a custom mouthguard will be made from durable hard acrylic or from soft materials.

Clean Air Technology
With all the worries people have about going to the dentist, breathing unhealthy air shouldn’t be one of them. Dental offices are public, high-traffic spaces, with patients themselves a source of air pollution. And because of the impact of common colds, disease, viruses and illnesses, the need to prevent the spread of airborne viral and bacterial infectious agents is greater than ever.
However, our medical-grade air purifiers remove chemicals, toxins, germs, odours, and most importantly they kill airborne viruses, to help reduce the spread of illness. Therefore you can breathe easily at every appointment that our clean air technology and air purification technology is there to ensure your safety throughout your visit.
