Care For Teeth Grinding

What Is Bruxism?

La Grande dentist cares for bruxism

Bruxism is common in children, but can continue into adulthood.

Brusixm is a condition in which you clench and grind your teeth. This can begin in young children and will continue on into adulthood. This can lead to the wearing away of enamel, leading to unsightly short teeth, root canals, and other more expensive procedures down the road. Bruxism can also cause major problems with headaches and neck pain.

Welcome to Solutions To Last A Lifetime

If you suffer from bruxism as a child, it will continue all through your life. A common misconception is that tooth grinding is only related to stress. Bruxism is caused by many factors and can wax and wane with stress, but it is always there.

Few grow out of this condition, but those for who don’t there are solutions to assist in long term care for Bruxism.

Dr. Morris can have a special appliance called a hard night guard fabricated and fitted ideally to the patients bite. When worn at night, this prevents further damage to the teeth and can help alleviate head and neck pain.
