Treating Teeth Grinding at Dechter & Moy

At Dechter & Moy Dentistry, we are committed to providing comfortable and comprehensive dental care to our patients. We offer treatment for bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding. This condition affects millions of Americans and can wear down teeth if left untreated. Learn more below to spot the signs and symptoms of bruxism.

Signs of Bruxism

There are multiple signs to look out for when it comes to bruxism, including:

  • Tooth pain
  • Jaw muscle pain
  • Sore gums
  • Worn teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Headaches
  • Flattened teeth
  • Mouth and facial pain

Call our office if you have noticed any of these symptoms. Your problem may be bruxism or another treatable oral health difficulty.

Treating Bruxism

Oral appliance guards are a great treatment option that stops teeth clenching and grinding at the source. Acting like mouth guards, oral appliance guards protect teeth and can be worn in stressful situations or at night. We will custom-fit the appliance to your teeth for your comfort. This treatment will also alleviate jaw pressure and reduce muscle tension.

If you need restorative treatment from damage caused by teeth clenching and grinding, we offer multiple options. Schedule a consultation with us if you think you need dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.
