Teeth Grinding Treatment in Torquay, Hervey Bay

Holding up clear mouthguardTeeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common dental issue that affects both adults and children. It can cause pain, damage to teeth and jaw, and a host of other oral health problems.

At Master Dental & Denture Centre, we provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment options to help our patients manage teeth grinding and its associated symptoms.

Diagnosis of Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding can be caused by a number of factors, including stress, anxiety, and misaligned teeth. Our experienced dentists will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, jaw, and mouth to determine the cause of your teeth grinding. We may also use dental x-rays or other imaging techniques to assess any damage that may have occurred as a result of grinding.

Treatment Options

At Master Dental & Denture Centre, we offer a range of treatment options to help manage teeth grinding and prevent further damage to teeth and jaw. One effective option is custom-made mouthguards, also known as splints, which can be fitted to protect teeth and reduce the damage caused by grinding. We will work with you to design a splint that is customized to your specific needs and fits comfortably in your mouth.

Addressing Underlying Issues

In addition to providing mouthguards, we can also identify and address any underlying issues that may be contributing to your teeth grinding.

For example, misaligned teeth or stress can cause grinding, so we may recommend orthodontic treatment or stress-reducing techniques to help alleviate the issue.

Lifestyle Changes and Relaxation Techniques

We believe in taking a holistic approach to dental care. In addition to providing treatment options for teeth grinding, we can also provide advice on lifestyle changes and relaxation techniques to help manage and reduce grinding. For example, we may recommend avoiding caffeine and alcohol, practicing stress-reducing techniques like meditation, and engaging in regular exercise.

Regular Dental Check-Ups and Cleanings

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are an important part of managing teeth grinding and maintaining overall oral health. During these appointments, our dentists can identify any dental issues that may be contributing to teeth grinding, such as tooth decay or gum disease, and provide appropriate treatment.

Teeth grinding can cause significant damage to teeth and jaw if left untreated. If you are experiencing signs of grinding or suspect that you may have this condition, please contact us to schedule an appointment today. We look forward to seeing you!
