Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) and TMJ Care

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can lead to various dental issues, including worn-down teeth and jaw pain. Our dentists can diagnose bruxism and provide customized solutions such as night guards to protect your teeth while you sleep. We also offer comprehensive care for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) to relieve jaw pain and improve jaw function.

Custom Mouthguards

Custom mouthguards are personalized oral appliances designed to protect your teeth and jaws in various situations. They offer a precise fit and maximum comfort, providing protection during high-impact sports, alleviating the effects of teeth grinding, and reducing jaw muscle tension associated with TMD. Investing in a custom mouthguard ensures your oral health and peace of mind in any situation.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that saves severely infected or damaged teeth. The infected pulp is removed, and the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. This alleviates pain, prevents infection spread, and preserves natural teeth. Skilled dentists use advanced techniques to ensure a comfortable experience. Treated teeth can function normally for years, maintaining oral health and a confident smile.


Periodontal Care

Periodontal care focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. Regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings help prevent gum disease. Treatments may include scaling, root planing, antibiotics, and surgeries. By addressing gum problems promptly, periodontal care ensures a healthy smile and overall well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings?

It is generally recommended to visit the dentist for a check-up and cleaning every six months. However, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits based on your oral health needs.

What is the importance of dental X-rays, and how often should they be taken?

Dental X-rays are essential for detecting issues not visible during a regular dental exam, such as cavities between teeth, bone loss, and infections. The frequency of X-rays depends on your dental health, age, and risk factors. In most cases, they are taken every 1-2 years.

How can I prevent cavities and maintain good oral hygiene?

To prevent cavities and maintain good oral hygiene, it’s crucial to brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily to remove plaque between teeth, limit sugary foods and drinks, and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.

What should I do if I experience a dental emergency, such as a knocked-out tooth or severe toothache?

For a knocked-out tooth, try to reinsert it into the socket if possible, or store it in milk and seek immediate dental attention. For a severe toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water, floss to remove any trapped debris, and see your dentist as soon as possible. In any dental emergency, it’s crucial to seek professional help promptly.

What are the common signs and symptoms of teeth grinding (bruxism), and what can I do to prevent it?

Common signs of teeth grinding include waking up with headaches or jaw pain, flattened or chipped teeth, and increased tooth sensitivity. To prevent teeth grinding, stress management techniques, relaxation exercises, and the use of a custom-made night guard prescribed by your dentist can be helpful. Additionally, addressing any underlying stress or anxiety issues may contribute to reducing bruxism.

What are the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), and how is it treated?

Symptoms of TMD may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth, difficulty chewing, and headaches. Treatment for TMD often involves a combination of conservative measures such as applying heat or cold packs, practicing jaw exercises, and using over-the-counter pain relievers. In more severe cases, a dentist or oral surgeon may recommend a custom-made oral splint or, in rare cases, surgery.
