Problems with Teeth Clenching? Our Calgary Clinics Can Help

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your lower jaw to the skull (just under your ears) and is essential for chewing. If you are experiencing trouble opening or closing your mouth, frequent headaches and ear pain, or clicking/popping sounds as you eat, you may be suffering the effects of temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Stress and excessive teeth grinding (bruxism) may be a contributing factor. Unfortunately, many patients don’t even realize the extent to which they grind their teeth at night. Visit Perspective Dental Centre in Calgary to address any teeth clenching concerns you may have.

Bruxism Problems

Prolonged grinding wears down the protective enamel on your teeth to the point where the softer dentin is exposed. This bony tissue is ultra sensitive to decay as well as hot and cold temperatures. Nightly grinding may also contribute to general fatigue and drowsiness throughout the day.

Don’t put off seeking treatment; come in for an exam and a consult. For many patients, wearing a simple night guard while you sleep is enough to alleviate many of the bothersome symptoms. Call us today.
