Treat TMJ and Teeth Grinding with Capital District Dentists

March 30, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Erin Page @ 1:11 am

treatment for teeth grinding from capital district dentists Nighttime teeth grinding, or bruxism, is more than a bad habit — it’s a quick path to broken, chipped, fractured, or otherwise damaged teeth. People who grind their teeth at night are also likely to experience migraines and pain in the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint (i.e. the jaw). But it can be difficult to identify whether or not you are dealing with bruxism and TMJ issues on your own. So the question is, are you grinding your teeth at night? If so, what can you do about it? Keep reading for more on teeth grinding from your Capital District dentists, Dr. Shiloh Lieberman and Dr. Erin Page.

How to Tell If You’re Grinding Your Teeth at Night

Because it happens when you’re asleep, it may be hard to figure out whether or not you’re grinding your teeth at night. Your partner may be able to identify the issue, but if they’re sleeping too soundly to provide much help (or if you sleep alone) you may be scratching your head when you think about what’s causing your jaw pain and sensitive teeth.

Watch out for the symptoms of nighttime teeth grinding, which include:

  • Headache in the morning
  • Sore jaw/facial muscles
  • Chipped, cracked, worn teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Popping, clicking, painful jaw

How Botox Can Help

TMJ therapy in Schenectady includes Botox — the treatment you probably associate with smoothing out wrinkled facial tissue for a younger-looking appearance. Yes, that’s what it’s most known for, but Botox is also the only FDA-approved treatment for migraines, and can be an effective treatment for jaw tension and pain related to the TMJ. It works by relaxing overactive facial muscles around the temporomandibular joint, which cause pain and discomfort when overused.    

Botox is a nonsurgical treatment that is completed in a matter of minutes at Capital Smiles. Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Page are American Academy of Facial Esthetics trained dentists offering an expert touch in the administration of Botox.

Custom-Fitted Nightguards for Teeth Grinding

Additionally, a custom-fitted nightguard can help to protect the smile from nighttime teeth grinding and jaw clenching, and even help to prevent its occurrence. A nightguard that you receive from Capital Smiles is created specifically for your teeth, so it’s guaranteed to fit comfortably. Custom-fitted nightguards provide significantly more protection than what you get from a guard you buy at the store — and your dentist provides this protective mouthpiece at Capital Smiles!
