Were you aware that bruxism, the chronic grinding of teeth, affects the lives of at least 10% of the nation? Commonly left untreated, bruxism can lead to headaches, earaches, toothaches, and the loosening of teeth. Some cases have even resulted in damage to restorative fillings and crowns! At the office of Irina Starik DMD, their experienced dentist is fully equipped to diagnose the precise origin of your underlying oral pain or discomfort. Providing an expansive breadth of dental services, from preventive, restorative, and emergency care, to the treatment of TMJ, and the most stunning prosthetic and cosmetic options for your smile, your dentist is prepared to address the dental needs of your entire family. More often than not, treatment for bruxism involves the use of a customized set of New York, NY 10075 night guards.
Although bruxism usually occurs during the bedtime hours, it can also happen during the day. Many attribute chronic teeth grinding to anxiety or stress, but its causes are yet to be officially determined. Treatment for bruxism, however, is quite official—and successful. With a customized set of 10075 night guards, your jaws can be kept slightly apart while you sleep, eliminating night-time clenching and grinding altogether. Designed by your dentist, your night guards are tailor-made to comfortably hug every rise and ridge of your teeth, for a comfortable, healthy fit. If you believe that you’re suffering from bruxism, it’s of the utmost importance that you see your dentist early on. In cases where patients have misaligned teeth, deviated bites, or unusual dental anatomy, bruxism can result in additional wear and strain to the teeth, jaws and facial muscles.
For the professional evaluation and treatment for chronic teeth grinding, make the office of Irina Starik DMD your destination. Providing treatment in the form of New York, NY 10075 night guards, customized to your bite, you may stand to benefit from a completely noninvasive solution to your bruxism habit.
