Help With Grinding and Clenching Dental Issues in Sydney

What is teeth grinding?

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a very serious and harmful dental habit that is characterised by unconscious grinding or clenching of an individual’s teeth. Because grinding is extremely damaging and wears away the enamel and structural integrity of your teeth, it’s important to address the problem quickly.

What are the symptoms?

Most individuals who grind their teeth notice tender neck and jaw muscles or a headache after waking up. However, there are some individuals who are unaware of their nightly teeth grinding habits due to the lack of symptoms, which is why it’s important to visit a dental professional for regular examinations.

How do we treat it?

As the habit is an unconscious one, one of the best solutions is to have a custom-created splint or a nightguard which is made to relieve pressure and prevent further damage to your teeth. The nightguard or splint is worn at night and acts as a barrier between your teeth to help protect your mouth from nighttime grinding.
