If you notice teeth grinding sound at night which may disturb the sleep of the person sharing your room, it’s time to visit a dentist. Dr. Caminschi Dental Clinic offers treatment for Bruxism in Mississauga. Bruxism is a common condition that mostly affects young children and adults during deep sleep or stress. Continuous grinding, gnashing or clenching of teeth during sleep is called bruxism. Though many bruxism cases go undetected with no detrimental effects, some patients get headaches and earaches. Nighttime bruxism can wear down the tooth enamel, chip teeth, cause sensitivity in tooth and severe facial pain and jaw problems, such as temporomandibular joint disease (TMD).
Custom-fitted Nightguards and Mouthguards
Dr. Caminschi provides consultation for bruxism in her Mississauga office and educates young children and adults about the prevention and treatment options. She evaluates the extent of damage on your teeth, gums and jaw. In many cases, a custom mouthguard or nightguard is provided to the patients to stop the side effects of bruxism. These guards protect your teeth by acting as a bumper guard and absorb the force of the clenching and grinding.
