Can Teeth Grinding Be Cured?

Posted by Joel Gerschman on

This is a common question among people who have a tendency to grind their teeth in their sleep. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a common condition that affects many adults. It occurs when a person grinds or clenches their teeth for extended periods of time, usually during sleep. The result can be painful and uncomfortable, as well as damaging to tooth enamel and other dental structures. But is there a way to cure teeth grinding in your sleep? 

What causes bruxism?

Before considering treatments for teeth grinding, it’s important to understand the causes of this condition. A variety of factors have been identified as potential causes of bruxism, including:

- Misalignment in the jaw joint or facial muscles

- Stress

- Anxiety

- Sleep apnoea

- Certain medications

- In some cases, no underlying cause can be identified

Treatments for teeth grinding

Once you’ve determined what may be causing you to grind your teeth, there are a number of treatments available that can help reduce or eliminate the problem. These include lifestyle changes such as reducing stress levels and avoiding alcohol before bedtime, jaw exercises, relaxation techniques, and mouth guards (also known as bruxism splints). Learn if mouth guards stop teeth grinding here.

Splints are designed to protect the teeth from further damage by preventing them from coming into contact with each other during sleep. They are custom-made by dentists to fit comfortably over your upper or lower teeth.
