When you find out that you are someone who requires bruxism treatment, you may feel astonished. “I didn’t even know I was grinding my teeth!” you might say. Or, you may be someone who clenches your teeth and feel quite shocked that you were unaware of this motion. As you may have just realized, bruxism is grinding or clenching that you’re not doing intentionally. Your muscles are moving, of course, but you may not realize it. Why treat it, you wonder?

Of course, as we’re helping you prevent it with treatment, there are some choices our Cerritos, CA team suggests you make in order to promote the success of your treatment (rather than work against it!).
