Bruxism

Bruxism is a common condition that affects millions of children and adults. It refers to the grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. Bruxism occurs both during the day and night. It is a very common sleep disorder and can cause the most damage during sleeping hours.

While Bruxism is considered a habit, an unknown one to many who has it, it can also be caused by stress, anger, anxiety, an abnormal bite or even crooked or missing teeth. It can also be caused by other sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea.

Common symptoms of bruxism, other than the teeth grinding and clenching are chipped, flattened or loose teeth, dull headaches and earache like pains, jaw or face pain or tight jaw muscles. It is important to see your dentist if your teeth have become worn or damaged, and if your jaw is not opening or closing properly.

Depending on the causes and symptoms of bruxism, there are treatment and therapies available to help preserve your teeth, and relieve bruxism. If you suffer from bruxism, call your dentist today to schedule an appointment to help find the treatment for you.

"I am looking forward to my next dental appointment!!!My fears are completely gone. For many years I have avoided going to the dentist because of painful past experiences. I was so ashamed of the way my smile looked that I stayed away from cameras and would not speak in public. I have a completely new attitude thanks to Dr. Kelly and his amazing staff.
The moment I walked into the door for the first time I was greeted with caring people who put me at ease. Dr. Kelly listened to my fears on every level. He understood all of my concerns, including the financial end and has worked with me to provide a long term plan that will provide me the ability to have a wonderful smile,better health and confidence, and peace of mind.
I highly recommend anyone who has ever felt their case was hopeless to make an appointment now. Dr. Kelly and everyone on his staff are wonderful and friendly and now I can SMILE! "
