Bruxism Treatment

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can result in significant jaw pain, persistent headaches, and in severe cases, tooth loss.

A custom-made occlusal splint can reduce the effects of bruxism without surgery

Why visit your dentist for bruxism treatment? 

A Custom Mouth Guard Can Protect Your Smile During Sleep

Protect Your Smile from Permanent Damage

An oral appliance helps to evenly distribute bite force when you grind your teeth and prevent excessive wear on your teeth.

State-of-the-Art Materials Promote Your Comfort

Splints are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic material which is custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth during sleep. 

Act Now and Save Money on Future Treatments

Bruxism treatment reduces the risk of tooth loss and the extensive, expensive restorative treatments necessary to replace missing teeth.

How does bruxism treatment work?

Both Adults and Children Can Benefit from Bruxism Treatment

The American Sleep Association estimates that 10 percent of adults and 15 percent of children grind their teeth during sleep

Oral appliances are compact and easy to care for. 

What about Store-Bought Mouth Guards?

Though store-bought devices may have a lower up-front cost, they require tedious preparation and may not fit as comfortably. As custom mouth guards are made using advanced materials which precisely and comfortably fit your smile, they are more effective at reducing the symptoms of bruxism than over-the-counter appliances. If your appliance is considered medically necessary, it may be partially or fully covered by your insurance. To help cover the difference in costs, many dentists can assist with insurance reimbursement or arrange flexible financing plans.

Here's what to expect during your appointment...

Your Custom-Fitting Mouthguard Appointment

During your exam, your dentist will assess the health of your gums and teeth. If he or she identifies signs of excessive wear, you may be a good candidate for bruxism treatment

To create your custom oral appliance, your dentist will begin by gathering digital or putty impressions of your smile

These impressions will be sent to a lab, where your custom mouth guard will be crafted

Your oral appliance will be delivered a few weeks later and your dentist will check the fit and feel before sending you home to begin therapy

Additionally, your dentist may recommend whether custom dental crowns are needed to strengthen any teeth previously damaged by teeth grinding

Unsure whether a mouth guard can help your unique case? 

You Have Options

Depending on your unique concerns and the root cause of your teeth grinding, your dentist may also recommend orthodontics, stress therapy, or jaw exercises to further relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of teeth grinding.  

Although there is no cure for bruxism, a treatment prescribed by your dentist can help you manage the painful symptoms, get a restful sleep, and improve your quality of life. Speak with a dentist to get started on your personalized treatment.
