Bruxism, the grinding and clenching of teeth, can occur at any time but is more prevalent at night. This condition is a significant contributor to tooth damage yet often goes undiagnosed due to its subtle symptoms. Left untreated, bruxism can lead to various oral health issues that impact your smile, health and quality of life.

If you suffer from bruxism, you might experience a range of symptoms including:

  • Broken, chipped and worn teeth
  • Damage to dentures and other oral appliances
  • Headaches, migraines, earaches and ear ringing
  • Sore jaw joints (which can contribute to TMJ disorders)
  • Tension and pain in the head, neck and shoulder muscles
  • Pain and tightness in the jaw muscles

Treating bruxism is crucial to maintaining your oral and overall health. Here at State Street Dental, we offer several treatment options tailored to your specific needs. These include relaxation exercises designed to reduce stress and oral appliances such as night guards and NTI-tss devices. These devices help prevent further damage by cushioning your teeth and preventing them from grinding against each other.

When you visit our office, our dentist will conduct a thorough examination to determine the best treatment plan for managing your bruxism. Once we have your condition under control, we will work with you to create a treatment plan that will restore your smile to its full beauty and health.
