Bruxism

Pinehurst NC Dental Bruxismphoto-of-years-of-tooth-grinding-or-bruxismGrinding and clenching of the teeth is known as bruxism.  Bruxism leads to accelerated wear of the teeth and sometimes muscle pain.  It often occurs during sleep or stressful times during the day.  In many cases, people are entirely unaware of bruxism.  It often goes on for years unnoticed until severe damage is done.  Custom made appliances may be recommended to reduce abnormal wear and muscle and joint discomfort.  We will prescribe the appropriate appliance for you.  You may learn more about appliance therapy with the dental wizard portal.
