Bruxism Disorder: How To Get Headed Toward Improvement

When you notice something isn’t right with your smile and you think it could be bruxism disorder, you might feel unsure about how to get yourself on a course that will lead you toward improvement. You don’t want to deal with the strange symptoms of habitual (it’s involuntary, remember) grinding of your teeth or clenching. You might notice that you chew on your tongue or cheek when you’re sleeping, that your teeth feel sensitive, that your jaw doesn’t feel wonderful, or that you’re getting headaches. Fortunately, our Cerritos, CA team can help you figure this out in so many ways!

Talk To Us! This Isn’t An Uncommon Issue

Did you know that bruxism disorder is probably more common than you realize? Since it’s often difficult to notice without some extra help, you may not hear a lot about it from friends or family. However, when you talk with our team about bruxism, we will instantly have quite a lot to explain to you and talk about (because we see patients who grind and clench, and we help them, all the time).

Face The Facts: Damage Is Absolutely Possible

You don’t want to hurt your teeth. You don’t want to lose your teeth either! As a result, we think you probably want to move forward with bruxism disorder treatment. Remember that bruxism can become highly destructive when ignored!

Choose Nightguard Therapy! It’s Effective.

We encourage you to come in for a checkup with us, so we can talk with you about your bruxism disorder. First, we can inform you about things you might be able to change in your daily life that can reduce the severity of your disorder, such as steering clear of too much caffeine or over-snacking. Next, we will offer you one of our dental services: Bruxism disorder treatment in the form of a nightguard. You’ll wear this comfortable mouthpiece when you’re sleeping. Doesn’t sound like much? Well, it’s simple. Yet, it is highly effective. It gives your bite the cushion it requires. It also helps you avoid damage and even additional disorders like TMJ disorder as it protects your teeth and surrounding tissues!
