Most people are affected by teeth grinding (bruxism) from time to time, and in most cases it’s due to simple stress. However, chronic grinding and clenching of teeth is a problem that needs to be addressed to prevent teeth from breaking down.
You may not be aware that you’re grinding and clenching your teeth. But if you’re waking up regularly with head, neck, or jaw pain, you may be feeling the effects of chronic teeth grinding.
Treatment for Teeth Grinding at Our Dentist Office in Denver
Dr. Litvak has had extensive training in treating TMJ, TMD, and teeth grinding. He uses this specialized knowledge to develop a plan for treatment that will reduce your teeth grinding and minimize the painful symptoms. In many cases, a simple oral appliance called an occlusal splint may be sufficient to provide the relief you need.
Dr. Litvak will start by performing a thorough evaluation to pinpoint the source of your teeth grinding. Based on the results, he will recommend a comprehensive plan, which may include using a night guard, muscle relaxing treatment and stress reduction techniques.
