Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding and clenching affects a quarter of adults and leads to all sorts of dental and sleep problems. Much of it takes place at night, so you’ll be unaware that it’s even happening and so unable to prevent it.

Wearing a custom-made bruxism appliance or mouth guard will help protect your teeth and your jaw from the painful and damaging effects of bruxism. It will also stop the noises caused by you grinding your teeth in the night and give your partner a better night’s sleep! Stop underlying bruxism problems before they escalate, with a comfortable – to – wear appliance.

”I am normally quite afraid of needles but when I walked into your practice to have wrinkle reduction I immediately felt comfortable. It was painless and I didn’t feel any discomfort the whole time. I still receive compliments by people who don’t know I’ve had wrinkle reduction. They think I look very relaxed and think the reason might be a recent holiday or even a new love! I’m 100% satisfied with the results and recommend your practice to all my friends and colleagues.”

Step 2

Treatment: On the day of your appointment, you’ll be made comfortable and anaesthetic will be applied to the injection area. The anti wrinkle injection will be expertly administered in the targeted areas you will have discussed previously with your practitioner. Following treatment, aftercare advice will be provided.

Step 3

It’s time to enjoy your new look. When it’s time for a top-up appointment, the practice will contact you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Symptoms of Bruxism include facial pain, earaches, headaches, jaw stiffness, worn down teeth, broken teeth and disrupted sleep. If you suffer from any of these, then why not book an appointment with our expert team to get a diagnosis.

Bruxism can be due to emotions running high. If you find you grind your teeth when you’re feeling angry, stressed, anxious, frustrated, in pain, or even just in a hurry, or under pressure, then it’s possible, you’re also doing at night, when you’re not aware of it. It can also be due to our teeth being slightly out of line, even if it’s not visibly noticeable.

If your Bruxism is left untreated, then your teeth may begin to wear down, causing serious tooth damage that may be costly and painful to fix. In extreme cases, you may even break your teeth. It also causes sleep disturbance, which brings with it its own problems. Lack of sleep can cause high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, depression, lower immunity and even contribute to obesity.

The duration of the treatment for Bruxism depends on your stress levels, which depend on what’s happening in your life and your frame of mind. You may need to wear a bite guard to protect the teeth from damage. There are different types of bite guard which can be discussed with your practitioner. The mouth guard stops you from damaging your teeth, because the wear and pressure will be on the guard, and not your teeth. If your nightly tooth grinding continues you’ll need to replace your mouth guard every few years.

It may take a few weeks to get used to wearing your mouth guard at night, but it will be custom made to fit your mouth and be as comfortable as possible from the first day of wearing it.
