Teeth Grinding

Also known as Bruxism, teeth grinding can be a habit that is often triggered by anxiety or stress. A person is often unaware that they are grinding their teeth as it mainly occurs during sleep, but the effects can be visible as the teeth can become worn and misshapen. A headache or soreness to the jaw upon waking can be another indicator, or others may hear the sound of grinding in the night. When bruxism occurs at night it is often found that the person also has other sleep-related problems, such as sleep apnea (pauses in breathing) or snoring.
When bruxism occurs during the day, this too can be an unconscious action that largely relates to stress and involves involuntary teeth grinding or clenching of the jaw. Many people who are affected by teeth grinding when they are awake can also be affected by habitual chewing.

When teeth grinding is relatively mild, little or no implications may occur. However, more significant bruxism can lead to problems with the teeth as they become fragile and vulnerable to fracturing or becoming loose - requiring attention from a dentist to fix the teeth.
Dental problems can not only become expensive, but can alter the facial appearance. Loose or lost teeth can cause gaps in the mouth that may not just look unattractive, but also incur a lack of support for the features and cause subsequent facial changes.

Possessing a great smile is a recognised desire by the team at Light Touch Clinic and they can provide the right treatment to ensure you hold on to this important facial characteristic. An individual consultation with one of Light Touch’s expert professionals can assess the cause of teeth grinding and suggest a suitable plan of action. By administering botulinum toxin (BOTOX) into the masseter muscle (at the sides of the jaw), the over contracted muscles can relax and teeth grinding will reduce.
