Understanding Bruxism and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)

Bruxism is when you grind or clench your teeth, often without realizing it, which can cause problems like headaches and tooth damage. Severe cases may need treatment to prevent jaw issues.

Signs of Bruxism:

  • Grinding or clenching teeth, even loud enough to disturb others
  • Teeth damage like chipping or looseness
  • Worn-down enamel or tooth pain
  • Chewing on the inside of your cheek
  • Jaw, neck, or face pain

If you notice any of these signs, see your dentist. They can also spot signs during regular check-ups and might suggest a mouth guard to protect your teeth.

Understanding TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)

TMJ is when there's pain and trouble moving your jaw due to issues with the joints connecting your upper and lower jaw. Symptoms include jaw or facial pain, trouble opening or closing your mouth, and clicking sounds while chewing.

TMJ is linked to things like jaw injuries, stress, and bruxism. Your dentist can diagnose it with X-rays and might recommend exercises or refer you to a specialist for more help.

Your dentist can diagnose and treat TMD with a personalized plan. This might include custom mouth guards to ease symptoms.
