Bruxism Treatment

Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding is a common response to stress, but as common—and natural—as it may be, it can seriously harm your teeth. Frequent teeth grinding, known as bruxism, can lead to a sore jaw, headaches, earaches, and TMJ dysfunction. If left untreated, bruxism can also lead to insomnia, eating disorders, and depression.

Though stress is one of the most common causes, it’s not the only one. The alignment of your teeth, your posture, and your sleeping habits can also contribute.

Custom-Made Nightguards

If you’re struggling with the pain of bruxism, Dr. Javeed can help you find relief with a custom-made oral appliance known as a nightguard. Wearing your nightguard while you sleep will protect your teeth and prevent them from grinding together.
