Eliminate Nighttime Teeth Grinding and Clenching with the Help of the iSmile dentists in Brampton

The medical term for teeth grinding or teeth clenching is called bruxism. Signs and symptoms of bruxism may include teeth grinding or clenching, worn or flattened teeth, worn tooth enamel, increased tooth sensitivity, jaw pain, chronic tenderness around the ears, face or shoulders, and headaches.

While the exact cause of bruxism is unknown, medical experts believe this condition is a response to psychological anxiety, stress, anger or frustration. Other causes include the improper alignment of teeth or the development of TMJ.

In many cases special treatment is not necessary, but in cases when the condition is severe, one of our dentists in Brampton may prescribe stress management, fit you with a night guard to wear while you sleep, or correct misaligned teeth.
