Your Smile and Bruxism

Posted .

Are you aware of the risks associated with bruxism? Bruxism is an oral health condition that typically arises subconsciously and can take place over several days or months before you may even notice signs of damage. To help protect your smile, be aware of any oral health treatments that you have and what you can do to improve your oral health.

Bruxism occurs when you grind and gnash your teeth, typically at night while you are sleeping. By having your teeth rub together, you would put your smile at severe risks of dental damage as your tooth enamel can be worn down and your teeth can even be knocked out of position. Furthermore, a failure to properly keep your smile safe leads to additional risks that might leave you vulnerable to future damage.

Are you aware of common signs and symptoms of bruxism and how to detect and treat it when needed? If you are showing any signs and symptoms of bruxism, you will need to visit our dentist for a comprehensive examination and potential treatments.
