Sleep Bruxism Treatment
Sleep bruxism is a condition in which you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping. Sleep bruxism is regarded as a sleep-related disorder and people who suffer from this are also more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea. People with mild bruxism may not require treatment, however, if you suffer from bruxism that is more severe and causes a sore jaw, headaches or damaged teeth, you can benefit from sleep bruxism treatment.
At Georgia Dental Sleep Disorders, we offer a variety of dental care that can help your sleep bruxism issues. After completing a full evaluation of your mouth, our professional team will work with you to choose the best choice for your treatment. Two of our most popular treatment options are:
- Mouth guards and splints - These devices are designed to keep your teeth separated to avoid damage caused by grinding and clenching. They are custom made to fit perfectly in your mouth and do not affect your ability to sleep.
- Dental correction - If misaligned teeth are causing your bruxism, we may need to align those teeth or reshape them in order to alleviate the grinding and clenching. In some more severe cases, braces or oral surgery are recommended.
