Best Ways to Stop Grinding Your Teeth


INTRODUCTION ďƒ˜

Grinding your teeth is a common issue. It has various cons in day to day life, personal and professional relationships, and deteriorates oral health. Teeth grinding is also known as Bruxism, and a study shows that around 80% of the population gets affected at some point in their lives.


Symptoms of Teeth Grinding ďƒ˜If

you are suffering from Bruxism, common symptoms include jaw pain, migraines, morning headaches, difficulty in opening your mouth, sensitive teeth, dizziness and tingling feelings in your ears. ďƒ˜The

main issue with grinding your teeth is that it causes long-term damage to your teeth and leaves your teeth crooked and chipped. It can also lead to sensitivity and make your teeth unbalanced.


How you can Avoid Grinding Your Teeth: 1) Get your teeth checked: Grinding of teeth de-aligns them, spoils the shape and causes an overall imbalance in the fixtures of the teeth. Your dentist will be able to alert you to misfit crowns and the teeth that has created imbalance joints itself.

2) Use night guard: A night guard is the best way to stop grinding at night. A guard is an artificial cushion-like device which decreases the severity of grinding. It acts as a cushion between your upper and lower jawline. Ask your dentist to customize a night guard as the one you buy from a shop will not be adequately aligned for your teeth and might worsen the balance of the overall teeth architecture.


How you can Avoid Grinding Your Teeth: 3) Use Botox: It is used and is injected to reduce wrinkles. Getting Botox injections in jawline helps to prevent jaw muscles from moving back and forth. This is a very severe operation, and Botox has an overall life of 3 to 6 months, which means that you'll have to repeat these injections in the coming months.

4) Self-awareness: Self-awareness can be a great tool to consciously stop clenching and grinding. Whenever you catch yourself grinding, stop and focus on some other work. If your mind starts deviating and starts grinding once again, slowly focus on work once again, keep repeating until it becomes a habit.
