For many patients, teeth grinding is a natural response to stress. What’s more, those who struggle with this problem—the medical term for it is bruxism—often have the most trouble while they’re asleep. This can have a devastating impact on oral health. Over time, the pressure and motion of bruxism can cause the surfaces of teeth to become worn. The muscles and tissues around the jaw can also become damaged.
Thankfully, patients who struggle with bruxism don’t have to live with their uncomfortable symptoms. With a custom-made nightguard from Ryan Dental Group, patients from Allen and beyond can sleep through the night without grinding their teeth.
Your treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Michael Ryan or Dr. Laura Ryan. During your appointment, we’ll look at the condition of your teeth and talk to you about the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Your nightguard will be custom-made for you, and we have many different kinds you can try; if one doesn’t work, we can see if another one will help you. We can also talk to you about relaxation techniques that can help you deal with stress.
Do you want to experience relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of bruxism? Call Ryan Dental Group today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Michael Ryan or Dr. Laura Ryan will meet with you, get to know you, and talk to you about all your treatment options. Our Allen dental office is happy to treat patients from Dallas, Lucas, Parker, McKinney, Fairview, Plano, and nearby areas.
