How An Oral Surgeon May Become Necessary for Someone with Bruxism

Posted on 6/23/2018 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Bruxism Palisades Surgical Arts CA 90272Do you struggle with bruxism? Many people do but are totally unaware of it. Bruxism is when you grind your teeth, or you clench your teeth, mostly unconsciously. Most people do this at night, which is how they have it but do not realize it.

The effects of bruxism have a wide range. However, not all of the effects are easily noticed. If the effects of bruxism get bad enough, you may require the services of an oral surgeon, like the ones in our office.

What Effects May Require an Oral Surgeon?

When you go on with bruxism long enough, your teeth suffer the consequences. The more you grind and clench, the worse those effects become. Eventually, you can crack your teeth, wear the chewing surfaces down to nothing, and even hurt your jaw. Once the effects get to where they affect how you live your life, you will have no choice but to seek immediate treatment.

The longer you leave the damage to continue getting worse, the harder it is going to be to correct. The best thing that you can do is to get tested for bruxism early, and if they find you have it, get it treated.

Basically, what you would have to do is wearing an oral appliance at times where you are prone to grind or to clench your teeth. That way, your teeth push on the plastic instead of the opposing teeth. This helps protect the teeth, and avoids you having to come to us for treatment.

If you worry about the effects of bruxism and you are already in pain, give us a call. Let us examine the current condition of your mouth, and see what we can do to help ease your pain.
