Teeth grinding, medically known as bruxism, occurs mainly during sleep. One of the causes is stress and anxiety. Even though occasional grinding does not cause harm, if done on a regular basis it will become a serious problem that will cause major oral health complications. Because grinding happens during sleep, most people are unaware; however, a sore jaw or a tight feeling in the mouth are symptoms of bruxism and definitely should be seen by a dentist in Beverly Hills as soon as possible.
At Bedford Dental Group, Dr. Naysan and his staff offer a variety of solutions to help teeth grinding and counter the negative effects it may have left on your smile. The first step will be to examine your jaw and mouth for signs of damage, including any abnormalities or tenderness.
In the event that there is a fractured, loose, or missing tooth, a variety of cosmetic dentistry options are available including crowns, implants, bridges and even dentures. We also offer a customized mouth guard to protect your teeth from nighttime grinding.
Along with resulting in tooth damage and even possible tooth loss, bruxism can also negatively affect your jaw resulting in TMD / TMJ, which can change the appearance of your face.
