Therapeutic solutions for patients who grind their teeth
The number of people who grind their teeth is rising nowadays as a consequence of a demanding and pressing lifestyle.
The consequences of grinding teeth could be devastating. The teeth can break; periodontitis (if any) might worsen and eventually lead to tooth loss. Additionally, some sensation might be felt from the jaw joint while chewing or having aching muscles around the mouth, due to tightening pressure. We may also experience headaches or hear hum, without having hearing disabilities.
Treatment is proportionate to the problem. Protecting the teeth by wearing a night narthex can be enough. However, in situations of critical stages of development, correction to several teeth may be necessary.
