Understanding Bruxism

Bruxism often occurs during sleep, but it can also happen during the day.

Common symptoms include:

  • Grinding or clenching of teeth, which may be loud enough to wake your sleep partner
  • Jaw discomfort or stiffness
  • Headaches, especially in the morning
  • Tooth wear and increased sensitivity

Our Bruxism Therapy Options

  • Custom Night Guards: The primary treatment for bruxism, custom night guards are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth, protecting them from damage due to grinding and clenching at night. These devices also help reduce strain on the jaw muscles and joints.
  • Dental Correction: Misaligned teeth can contribute to bruxism. Correcting these alignments with orthodontics or restorative dental procedures can reduce symptoms.
  • Stress Management: Since stress is a common trigger for bruxism, we provide guidance on techniques to reduce stress, including referrals to therapy or counseling if needed.
  • Muscle Relaxation Exercises: We teach exercises designed to relieve tension in the jaw and facial muscles, potentially easing the symptoms of bruxism.

Advanced Technology for Diagnosing and Treating Bruxism

Infinity Smile Dental utilizes state-of-the-art technology to enhance our bruxism therapy services:

  • Digital Impressions: For accurate creation of custom-fitted nightguards without the discomfort of traditional molds.
  • K7 Evaluation System: Measures and analyzes jaw muscle function and jaw movements to accurately diagnose bruxism and its impact.
  • TENS Unit: Used for muscle relaxation before taking impressions for night guards, ensuring a better fit.
