STRESS IS BAD FOR TEETH
Stress is not uncommon this time of year, but if you find yourself grinding your teeth, you could be doing significant damage. Grinding teeth and holding tension in the jaw can lead to TMJ, a painful and limiting condition that may cause premature tooth loss, chronic headaches, and similar discomforts.
If soreness in the jaw or tension headaches have begun to indicate tooth grinding, now is the time to call Barrie dentist Dr. Adam Chapnick at (705) 722-4848 to discuss TMJ treatments that can protect your teeth and your comfort for years to come.
Treating TMJ caused by tooth grinding may require little more than a customized night guard and simple stress reduction techniques. Combining these methods can help prevent daytime tooth grinding caused by excessive stress along with the risks of nocturnal jaw clenching that may be beyond your conscious control. During your TMJ treatment consultation we will assess your jaw joint and current damage caused by tooth grinding, discuss all of your treatment options, and help you choose the best solution for the lasting comfort and beauty of your smile.
If you are struggling with jaw pain in Barrie or surrounding areas of Ontario, contact Molson Park Dental Office today to schedule your TMJ treatment consultation.
