Bruxism
Houston, TX

Protect your teeth from bruxism with teeth grinding treatment in Houston!

Many people unknowingly grind or clench their teeth at night while they sleep. This is known as “bruxism,” and it can harm your oral health over time.

Underlying stress or anxiety can contribute to bruxism, but since the habit occurs while we sleep, it can be hard to stop.

In reality, putting an end to bruxism may require a lot of time and various treatments. However, you can protect your teeth in the meantime.

If you grind or clench your teeth, Victory Smiles can help protect them. Turn to our dental clinic for bruxism treatment in Houston.

Signs of Bruxism

How do you know if you are grinding or clenching your teeth at night? One sign is that you wake up with a tight/sore jaw. If you find that your jaw is tight in the morning, there’s a good chance you were clenching it throughout the night. If you share a room or bed with someone, they may be able to provide insight. Partners or other family members may complain about hearing you grind your teeth at night. If someone who sleeps near you brings it up, then bruxism could be a concern.

Tooth Grinding and Dental Health

Grinding or clenching your teeth is not just a habit. It’s something that can affect your oral health in several ways. Since it happens while you sleep, it’s hard to recognize or stop at the moment. The most obvious impact bruxism has is tooth wear. The additional pressure and friction can damage tooth enamel over time. Eventually, it can disrupt the shape of your teeth and flatten them so badly that they require dental crowns for repair.

Furthermore, bruxism can contribute to TMJ symptoms and jaw pain. If you’re struggling with clicking and popping in your jaw, bruxism will only make it worse!
