Grinding Teeth

Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) Denver

Almost everyone has probably ground or clenched their teeth due to various reasons. Occasional teeth grinding or bruxism, is normally not harmful. However, when teeth grinding happens on a chronic basis the teeth can become permanently damaged and numerous other oral health problems may develop.

Grinding is harmful to your teeth

Persistent teeth grinding can result in fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth. In severe cases, chronic grinding can wear teeth down to stumps. If the grinding results in this scenario, bridges, crowns, root canals, implants, partial dentures, and even complete dentures may be necessary.

Not only can severe grinding damage teeth resulting in tooth loss, it can negatively impact your jaws, cause hearing loss, create or worsen TMD/TMJ, and even alter your facial features.

What causes someone to grind their teeth?

Teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, but the grinding often occurs during sleep and is probably caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth.

If you suspect you may be grinding your teeth, visit the dentist. Your mouth and jaw can be examined for evidence of bruxism, such as jaw tenderness and abnormalities in your teeth.

How can I stop grinding my teeth?

Mouth guards are an effective way to protect your teeth from grinding as you sleep. The dentist can custom fit you for a mouth guard.
