Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding or clenching, is a disorder characterized by involuntary pressing or grinding of the teeth during sleep or while awake.

Bruxism usually occurs unconsciously during stress, anxiety or sleep. This condition can occur in both adults and children and can cause serious damage to the teeth and tissues around the jaw joint in the long term. As FARA Dent Oral and Dental Health Polyclinic, we offer expert and effective solutions in the treatment of bruxism.

Bruxism; Teeth Grinding - What are the Causes of Teeth Grinding?

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Genetic factors
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Side effects of some medications
  • Tooth and jaw joint problems

In the treatment of bruxism, it is important to first determine the factors that cause bruxism. At FARA Dent, our expert dentists diagnose bruxism as a result of a detailed examination and necessary tests and plan the most appropriate treatment for you.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Bruxism?

  • Bruxism can cause headaches and even migraines.
  • As a result of tooth wear, tooth sensitivity and pain may occur.
  • Pain and discomfort may be felt in the tissues around the jaw joint.
  • Grinding and clenching can cause pain, tension and a feeling of stiffness in the jaw muscles.
  • Due to grinding and clenching, teeth may wear out and their surfaces may become irregular.
  • Because bruxism often occurs during sleep, it can negatively affect sleep quality and even lead to insomnia.

What are the Methods Used in the Treatment of Bruxism?

Treatment for bruxism usually aims to relieve symptoms, prevent damage to teeth, and reduce discomfort. Treatment methods include the use of a mouth guard, relaxation techniques, stress management, dental protective devices, and sometimes medications. The most appropriate treatment plan for each patient is determined based on the severity of symptoms, the patient’s health status and personal preferences.

Night guard: Night guard prevents tooth wear and other symptoms caused by bruxism by preventing teeth from touching each other during sleep.
Physical therapy: Physical therapy can be applied for pain and sensitivity in the jaw joint due to bruxism.
Stress management: Stress and anxiety are one of the most important triggers of bruxism. Therefore, stress management techniques play an important role in the treatment of bruxism.
Dental treatments: Treatments such as fillings, crowns or dental aesthetics can be applied to teeth worn and worn out due to bruxism.
