Many patients are unaware that they grind or clench their teeth because it usually occurs while they sleep. However, there are a variety of symptoms to be aware of when determining whether or not someone has the tendency to grind or clench their teeth. These symptoms include increased tooth sensitivity, tired or sore jaw muscles during waking hours, worn tooth enamel and ear pain. Patients who notice any of these symptoms are urged to seek the help of a qualified dentist.
If left untreated, bruxism can cause a variety of issues, including loosening of the teeth, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and cracks in the teeth. While bruxism is not fully understood, some doctors think that it can be triggered or worsened by strong negative emotions, acid reflux or sleep apnea. Underlying dental problems, such as malocclusion, or abnormal alignment of the lower and upper teeth, could also contribute to bruxism. Dr. McIntyre invites patients who suspect that they may have issues from clenching their teeth or teeth grinding in Kyle, TX to schedule an appointment at his practice for a thorough evaluation.
