Grinding your teeth at night? We can help!
Temporomandibular joint disorders are the result of damage to the connective tissue between the jaw and skull. When this tissue is injured, it can cause severe localized pain. TMJ is not only painful and inconvenient, it can also cause serious conditions that interfere with everyday activities. If you are suffering from a TMJ disorder, trust Dr. Dreier to make things right.
Bruxism is a condition that causes involuntary clenching or grinding of the teeth. Since it most often occurs during sleep, patients don’t realize they have bruxism until their dentist notices the consequential damage. Bruxism can make talking and eating difficult and painful. Even minor cases of bruxism can cause damage or sensitivity to your teeth. Symptoms include, chips, cracks, worn and sensitive teeth, headaches, and a general soreness of the jaw.
TMJ treatments can resolve pain and sensitivity, so it’s important to begin treatment as soon as possible. If you think you might be suffering from bruxism or another TMJ disorder, you can begin to remedy the situation by eating soft foods and limiting strenuous jaw movements. Then, make an appointment with Dreier Family Dental.
Common TMJ treatments involve medication to reduce pain and relax the muscle and wearing a night guard to protect your teeth. Come on in for our expert opinions and treatment plans. We can help get you back to normal!
