Bruxism is a common condition characterized by the grinding or clenching of teeth, often during sleep. If left unmanaged, it can lead to a host of dental problems, including worn-down teeth, jaw pain, and headaches. At Radiant Smiles, we are committed to providing comprehensive dental care that addresses a wide range of oral health issues, including the effective treatment of bruxism. Our practice is dedicated to helping patients find relief from the discomfort and dental damage associated with bruxism through personalized and professional treatment at our dental center in Arlington, VA.
Bruxism can have a detrimental impact on your oral health, causing not only dental issues but also discomfort and pain. The chronic grinding and clenching of teeth can result in enamel wear, chipped or fractured teeth and heightened tooth sensitivity. It can also lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, which can cause jaw pain, headaches and facial muscle pain. Effective bruxism treatment is crucial to prevent these dental and health-related complications.
Relief from Teeth Grinding Disorder
At Radiant Smiles, we offer a comprehensive approach to bruxism or teeth-grinding treatment, ensuring our patients receive personalized care that targets the root causes of their condition. Dr. Chandna will conduct a thorough examination, which may include assessing the extent of teeth wear and damage, as well as evaluating your bite.
In many cases, we recommend the use of custom-fitted nightguards or occlusal splints. These appliances are worn during sleep and act as a barrier, preventing teeth grinding and clenching. Nightguards are made to fit comfortably and securely, providing protection for your teeth and jaw. Our team will closely monitor your progress and may recommend adjustments to your treatment plan as needed. Regular follow-up appointments ensure that you are experiencing relief and making positive strides in your oral health.
We believe in the importance of personalized care and work collaboratively with our patients to develop individualized oral care plans that emphasize preventive measures and strategies to manage and alleviate bruxism.
