No matter the severity, bruxism can severely damage the oral structures and be a leading cause of jaw pain.
SAN MARCOS, Texas (PRWEB) May 22, 2018
Clear Springs Family Dentistry’s dentist, Dr. David McIntyre, is now offering treatment to patients suffering from jaw pain and bruxism in San Marcos, TX. The dental practice has expanded its service reach to accept new patients who suffer from teeth grinding and its symptoms. Excessive teeth grinding can severely damage teeth and cause additional problems like migraines and TMJ disorder. With effective treatments from a skilled dentist, patients can preserve the structure of their teeth.
Patients who suffer from bruxism in San Marcos, TX, put unnecessary force on their teeth through the day or even while they sleep. Sometimes this pressure can be a strong and damaging grinding of the teeth that occurs involuntarily while sleeping, or it can be constant clenching during stressful situations. No matter the severity, bruxism can severely damage the oral structures and be a leading cause of jaw pain.
Common symptoms of teeth grinding include:
- Jaw pain or TMJ disorder
- Loose teeth
- Damaged, cracked or worn teeth
- Frequent migraines
- Tooth loss
Without seeking treatment for bruxism, patients can crack or grind down teeth making them virtually unusable. Teeth badly damaged will need to be capped with a dental crown to restore function and aesthetics to the mouth. If damage is so severe that a tooth becomes broken, it may need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant.
Clear Springs Family Dentistry offers patients bite and mouth guards to protect the teeth from damage. These are custom fit to the mouth to ensure proper protection and prevent the teeth from touching while sleeping or at work. With regular usage, patients can prevent excessive damage to their teeth and in some cases even stop the jaw pain and grinding altogether.
