Doctors for Bruxism in Paravoor Road, Kochi
ratings and reviews)
Bruxism is the medical term for grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw. People sometimes grind their teeth without causing any symptoms or problems. But regular, persistent teeth grinding can cause jaw pain and discomfort and wear down your teeth. It can also cause headaches and earache.
HOW IS BRUXISM DIAGNOSED?
The dentist will usually carry out a normal physical examination by studying any inflammation in the jaws and gums, as well as any anomalies in the formation of the teeth. Further damage in the bones and the cheeks can also be checked with the help of a dental X ray.
HOW IS BRUXISM TREATED?
Treatment of bruxism revolves around repairing the damage to teeth that has already occurred, and also, often via one or more available methods, attempting to prevent further damage and manage symptoms. Only conservative treatment which is reversible and that carries low risk of morbidity should be used. The main treatment are:
1. Dental guards and occlusal splints
2. Psychological interventions
6. Occlusal adjustment/reorganization
DID YOU KNOW?
Bruxism is not a dangerous disorder. However, it may cause dental and cosmetic problems. Sleep bruxism is considered a sleep-related movement disorder. People who clench or grind their teeth during sleep are more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and pauses in breathing (sleep apnea).
