Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) April 04, 2017
People who suffer from teeth grinding in Clearwater, FL, can now visit Drs. Jill Hagan, David Wagner, Saravana Karunagaran and Gabrielle Goodman to find relief. The doctors are currently accepting new patients with or without referrals to their practice, Northwood Dental, for experienced bruxism treatment, which corrects teeth grinding. Visiting a qualified dentist for this procedure can protect patients from various oral health issues, from tooth damage to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
People who suffer from chronic teeth grinding in Clearwater, FL, are often at risk for serious complications if the condition is left untreated. Bruxism can wear down the teeth or cause them to crack and fracture, which may lead to the teeth becoming loose or even falling out. These complications may necessitate various additional treatments from a dentist, including crowns, bridges, dental implants and dentures. Jaw conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder may also result from bruxism. In addition, teeth grinding can lead to adverse changes in facial appearance and hearing.
The Northwood Dental team works with each patient to determine the optimal way to address chronic bruxism. In addition to creating custom mouth guards to physically prevent nighttime teeth grinding, the doctors help patients explore lifestyle changes to address the underlying causes of bruxism. These may include practicing stress reduction and jaw muscle relaxation techniques, reducing intake of caffeine and alcohol, and avoiding chewing on non-food items.
