Bruxism is a condition where an individual grinds or clenches their teeth, often during sleep.
Bruxism can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, misaligned teeth, and certain medications.
Bruxism can cause a range of oral health problems, including tooth wear, chipped or cracked teeth, and jaw pain.
At Solis Dental Clinic, we offer a range of treatments for bruxism, including custom-made mouthguards, Botox injections, and orthodontic treatment.
A custom-made mouthguard is a dental appliance designed to fit over your teeth and protect them from damage caused by grinding and clenching.
Botox injections can be used to relax the muscles responsible for grinding and clenching, reducing the symptoms of bruxism.
Orthodontic treatment involves the use of braces or aligners to correct misaligned teeth, which can contribute to bruxism.
The length of treatment for bruxism depends on the severity of the condition and the chosen treatment plan. At Solis Dental Clinic, we work with each patient to create a personalised treatment plan that meets their needs and goals.
Preventing bruxism involves managing stress and anxiety, avoiding stimulating substances like caffeine and nicotine, and practicing good sleep hygiene. Additionally, wearing a custom-made mouthguard can help protect your teeth from damage caused by grinding and clenching.
At Solis Dental Clinic, our team of experienced dentists and specialists are dedicated to providing high-quality, personalised care to each of our patients. We use the latest technology and techniques to deliver effective, long-lasting results for bruxism and other dental conditions.
