You may be unaware that you clench and/or grind your teeth. This pandemic has caused a great deal of stress and your mouth can show this stress through pain, tooth wear and tooth cracks. It could be happening during the day or while you sleep at night.
Often our team sees these changes and you could be completely unaware that you clench and/or grind your teeth. If left untreated you may notice tooth pain, increased tooth sensitivity, cracked teeth, worn teeth, sore cheeks and/or tongue from biting, sore jaws, tender jaw muscles and difficulty opening your mouth.
The iDental Surgery team can help you through this difficult time to relieve muscle pain and protect your teeth from further damage. Effective treatment includes occlusal splint therapy alone or together with muscle relaxing injections.
