Modern life can often come with many stresses and can manifest in bruxism

Symptoms include:
  • Grinding
  • Clenching
  • Headaches
  • Sore jaw and facial muscles
  • Clicking or locking of the jaw

Along with stress, it can sometimes be related to sleep apnoea.

Untreated bruxism can be quite destructive to teeth, leading to chipped, cracked and worn teeth. This in turn makes them more susceptible to decay, gum disease and sensitivity.

Here at Mount Waverley, we can discuss with you ways to manage this, which might include making a custom night guard (occlusal splint). Our dentists have the experience and expertise in accurately fitting and adjusting your night guards so that they fit comfortably and keep your teeth protected.
