Bruxism is a habit that can wear down teeth and cause other oral health issues. Commonly referred to as “teeth grinding”, bruxism means that people habitually grind their teeth and clench their jaws. Over time, this habit can weaken teeth permanently and strain facial ligaments and muscles.
TLC Dentistry takes the threats of bruxism seriously. Treatments might include orthodontic care, restorations, stress reduction techniques, and oral appliances called “night guards.”
