When You Choose Bruxism Treatment: 3 Issues You Get To Stop Worrying About

Something very, very exciting happens when you choose bruxism treatment with our Virginia Beach, VA team! A long list of worries that cross your mind on a daily basis as a result of your bruxism disorder suddenly no longer concern you. You’ve made the decision to treat the problem, so all of those “what if” thoughts about what your grinding and clenching might be causing suddenly go “poof!” and just disappear!

#1: Some Very Serious Smile Damage

When you ignore bruxism, there’s a very good chance you’ll end up having to come to us at some point for restorative care! Remember that your jaws and bite are so powerful, so if you’re grinding or clenching, you’ll eventually damage your own teeth. When you choose bruxism treatment, you don’t have to worry about this anymore. You’re protecting your teeth, so you don’t have to stress about requiring restorations later.

#2: The Weird Symptoms That Come With It

When you’re coming in to talk with us about bruxism disorder, you are likely telling us about the weird symptoms that affect you. You might notice indentations along your tongue (the border). You might end up chewing your cheek tissue when you sleep (which doesn’t feel so great when you wake up). You might get headaches. Your shoulders or neck may hurt. You may have pain in your teeth and sensitivity that makes eating uncomfortable. Great news: When you use bruxism treatment, one thing you can definitely stop worrying about is these symptoms. They’ll begin getting better.

#3: Developing TMJ Disorder Or Making It Much Worse

When you decide that you’re ready to receive bruxism treatment, you immediately know that you’re not going to have to have any more TMJ disorder worries anymore. If you’re chronically grinding your teeth or clenching them, you always know in the back of your mind that it’s causing so much stress not only to your teeth but also to all of the tissues involved, which includes your jaw joints! You give them a huge break when you cushion your bite with an oral appliance at night. Think you might need this but you’re not sure where to start? Simply call our practice soon!
