Teeth grinding

Overview: Teeth grinding, also known as Bruxism, is a very common issue.

Individuals who habitually grind their teeth, which then can result in serious damage to teeth, or other oral health problems. The grinding contact between the teeth can either be noisy and rough, or quiet and gritting. The most common time for this condition to occur is during sleep, although, it can also happen while one is awake.

Continuous teeth grinding can have detrimental effects on an individual’s dental health. Losing teeth, loosening teeth or tooth breakage can occur as a result of bruxism. This behavior, if repeated, can cause the teeth to be whittled down to nothing. If this occurs, multiple issues such as root canals, crowns or implants could occur. Hearing loss, changes in facial appearance, significant pain, and headaches can result from damage to the jaw related to bruxism.

Right from the beginning when I walked through the door, every fear that I ever thought I would have coming back to the dentist was dissipated by Dr. Insiya and her staff. They took wonderful care of all my fears. They explained every little thing that I would be going through. Clean office and great staff!

This team is a good group of people/ professionals. The staff is always very informative and we always end up having a good laugh. This is the type of relationship I expect from a neighborhood Dentist. I had brought my Mother who doesn't speak English. The Doctor was fluent in my Mother's language and it brought such comfort to her. And it was very comforting to me as well. Thank You Smiles at Telfair.
