You’ll Find Custom Treatment Options for Teeth Grinding

There is no single cure for bruxism, though a variety of helpful devices and tools are available. Here are some common ways in which teeth grinding is treated:

Mouthguards – An acrylic mouthguard can be designed from tooth impressions. It minimizes the damage caused by grinding your teeth during normal sleep. Mouthguards should be worn on a long-term basis to help prevent damage to the temporomandibular joints and your teeth. It will also help to stabilize misalignment that may cause your bruxism or make it worse.

NTI-tss device – This device is fitted by a health professional and only covers the front teeth. The goal of the NTI-tss is to prevent the grinding of your rear molars by limiting the contraction of the temporalis muscle.

Other methods of treatment include relaxation exercises, stress management education, and biofeedback mechanisms. When the bruxing is under control, dental procedures such as crowns, gum grafts, and crown lengthening can restore a pleasant aesthetic appearance to your smile.
