TMJ Dysfunction/ Grinding

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common condition that can cause serious dental problems if left untreated. At East Geelong Dental Practice, we understand the impact that teeth grinding can have on your oral health and we are dedicated to helping you find a solution that will stop the grinding and protect your teeth.

Teeth grinding can cause a variety of dental problems, including worn or cracked teeth, jaw pain, headaches, and even temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). It can also lead to changes in your bite and can cause your teeth to become sensitive.

There are several factors that can contribute to teeth grinding, such as stress, anxiety, and certain medications. Our team of dentists will work closely with you to determine the cause of your grinding and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

One of the most effective treatment options for teeth grinding is the use of a custom-made night guard. Night guards are designed to fit over the upper or lower teeth and provide a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, which helps to prevent grinding and protect the teeth from damage.

Our dentists will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fit night guard that will be comfortable to wear and will provide the necessary protection for your teeth. They will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your night guard and how to wear it properly.

In addition to night guards, our team may also recommend other treatment options such as medication, counseling, or stress management techniques to help reduce the frequency and severity of teeth grinding.
