Bruxism: Important Questions

There’s something about bruxism disorder that can really confuse people. Do you know what it is? Well, one of the main problems in diagnosing yourself is the fact that there’s a very good chance you’re not even aware of the grinding or clenching that’s going on. As a result, we’d like to ask you some important questions that will help you receive bruxism treatment if you need it.

#1: Do You Have Symptoms?

If you have bruxism symptoms, then you should come see us right away. Here’s what might be happening that suggests bruxism disorder:
Someone has told you that they see you grinding or clenching (or hear it)

  • You’ve noticed your teeth are seeming worn down or sensitive
  • You see that the outer border of your tongue has a wavy contour
  • Your jaws hurt
  • Your face feels sore

#2: Have You Seen Us Lately?

Whether you have symptoms or not, this is very important: You should see us every six months. That way, whether you notice the issue on your own or have no clue it’s going on, we will find it for you and offer bruxism disorder treatment.

#3: Have You Been Diagnosed?

Have you already been diagnosed by our team or another practice? Are you receiving treatment? If not, you should make the decision to visit us ASAP to begin your oral appliance therapy.

#4: Do You Know Why Treatment Is So Important?

If you aren’t already aware, bruxism disorder can destroy your teeth and lead to everything from breakage and chipping to worn surfaces, trouble eating, and even tooth loss. Choose to skip the damage and instead begin treatment, so your smile stays healthy.
