Wake Up Feeling Good Again

The Bad News About Bruxism

Do you wake up with headaches or suffer from chronic jaw pain?

Your unexplained facial pain could be because of teeth grinding, or bruxism.

Bruxism can be a powerful, violent scraping of your teeth or it can be a quiet, static clenching of your teeth.

Both actions exert an unnatural amount of force on your teeth and jaw and can cause several oral health problems including:

• Cracks in your teeth
• Loosening of your teeth
• TMJ issues including jaw pain
• Wear of your teeth
• Tooth loss


Who Grinds Their Teeth?

Teeth grinding not only happens at night but it can also happen when you are awake.

No one is immune; bruxism affects men, women, and children.

We do not know what exactly causes someone to grind their teeth but we do know that certain things make it worse, including stress, sleeping disorders, and alcohol consumption.

Children and toddlers can grind their teeth because of a cold or because they are in pain from teething.

    Treating My Teeth Grinding

    Bruxism not only causes jaw pain and TMJ issues but it can also wear your teeth down to nubs, requiring extreme dental work to restore your oral health.

    Dr. McIntyre can fit you with a bite guard to protect your teeth and jaw.

    There are also practical ways to change your lifestyle to help improve your teeth grinding habits including:

    • Cut back on caffeine
    • Relax your jaw before going to sleep
    • Avoid alcohol
    • Avoid chewing on foreign objects

    It took me years to find a dentistry office I actually like in TX after moving here from CT; where I had been going to the same dentist since I was a kid.

    I am sooooo happy I found this amazing practice! Dr McIntyre is incredibly personable and gives very thorough exams. Rachael is the nicest!!! I thoroughly enjoy my cleanings every 6 months!

    Everyone there takes the time to get to know you and remembers you every visit. The heated massage chairs and TVs on the ceiling are the icing on the cake!

    I could NOT ask for a better experience at a dentist office.
    Dr McIntyre and his staff was such a joy to be around that I would go back just to visit. The chairs massaged my back while I watched birds out the window and Doc worked on me. GREAT experience!!!!! I will recommend Clear Springs to everyone. Thanks you guys!
