Custom Treatment for Bruxism
Sometimes, you might not even realize that you’re grinding your teeth, or you might grind while you are sleeping, in which case you are not conscious enough to notice it. If you grind constantly, then you might suffer from bruxism (chronic teeth-grinding), which could lead to a host of dental health issues if not addressed. The good news is that Dr. Jenkins may be able to treat your bruxism with a comfortable, conservative, custom-designed oral appliance that protects your teeth from grinding against each other. By wearing the appliance while you sleep, you can prevent extensive dental damage while Dr. Jenkins helps you restore overall balance to your bite.
In Cases of Grinding Damage
Bruxism can be caused by a number of different factors, such as tooth misalignment, and treating it may require addressing the underlying issue. If your teeth have suffered damage, such as excessive tooth wear, cracks, fractures, or breaks, then Dr. Jenkins may include an appropriate restorative procedure in your treatment plan. Restoring your tooth structure will be vital to restoring and maintaining your bite balance, which can reduce bruxism symptoms, or help you stop grinding your teeth altogether.
