Bruxism

Bruxism is the habit of grinding or clenching the teeth. While it can also be a waking habit, it primarily occurs at night while you sleep. You may not even be aware that you have it.

Treatment for Tooth Grinding (Bruxism)

 Bruxism is linked to stress and can lead to tooth damage and temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJ, which can cause headaches, earaches, and facial discomfort.

Because bruxism is not easy to detect, you may not become aware of the habit until you notice your teeth have become worn or your partner notices the grinding noise.

Grinding your teeth damages them gradually over time, increasing sensitivity and leaving them more susceptible to breakage.

Treatments for bruxism include wearing a mouth guard or splint, as well as practising muscle-relaxing exercises and stress management.

Dr Ali Rifai was professional and I am very pleased with the outcome of my Invisalign's. I have been with this practice for many years and would highly recommend. The staff are very friendly and nothing is an issue.

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)
