Our office understands the stress is a part of daily life, and some patients end up involuntarily grinding their teeth as a result! For those with bruxism, or teeth grinding, it can be tiresome, painful, and damaging. In extreme cases, bruxism can chip your teeth and require even more treatments. If you are interested in bruxism treatment in Glendale, California, please contact the office of Russel R. Jacinto, DMD at 818-240-6705. Our dentists can help alleviate your discomfort and improving your oral health.
Bruxism, also known as tooth grinding or clenching, is a common problem across the world. While it is common, it can be highly detrimental to your oral health. Many people find that they grind or clench their teeth while sleeping, and if there is no protective barrier between your two dental arches, the continuous contact can cause your teeth to wear down, become shorter, and become more susceptible to decay.
When you visit our dentists, we can evaluate your mouth to look for signs of bruxism. If Dr. Jacinto or Dr. Zumaeta find any of the symptoms, they may recommend a bruxism treatment. Before establishing a treatment plan, our dentists will thoroughly evaluate your mouth to determine the exact areas where your teeth are grinding and identify any other contributing factors. Once your condition is diagnosed, we offer a variety of bruxism treatments, including night guards, to repair your oral health and protect your teeth from further damage.
