Stent / Bruxism

Bruxism is the involuntary grinding of teeth during sleep. It can also cause headaches, soreness of the jaw joints, loss of teeth surface and cracks. Among other methods we treat it by making a brace modeled by the print of the patient’s teeth.

Teeth griding alone is not a dangerous habit. However, if we do it regularly every day it can cause severe wear-outof the teeth and oral cavity, as well as headaches, a sore jaw and bite defects. The enamel is brushing off and becoming all thinner and thinner. Consequently, there is a greater chance for decay and serious damage to the teeth.
