Clenching your Jaw Lisa Gitelson, DMD OR 97224-3790
Clenching your jaw can cause further problems for many patients. There are multiple reasons for this. It is important to speak with our dentists regarding the jaw clenching that you do. They can come up with treatment plans to help you take better care of your teeth overall.

Know that clenching is usually something that you do not notice you're doing. Make sure that you're taking the time to consider all of the available treatments out there.

Clenching your Jaw Can Be Treated

Clenching your jaw can be treated through various methods. Not only can you obtain a mouth guard that helps to protect your teeth against it. You can also ensure that this protects your teeth from breaks for grinding, as well. Mouth guards are given in-office and must be fitted to the mouth.

Problems with Clenching Your Teeth

When you clench your teeth tightly, it breaks the teeth down over time. This causes them to break with time. Grinding the teeth has the same effect, which can be painful for the person. When the person sleeps, they are unaware that they are doing this or how hard they're doing it. This is where the problem lies. When this happens, you can fracture the teeth and cause further issues.

Remember to speak with a dentist regarding the care of your teeth and the mouth guard that can help you reduce the chances of having tooth fractures.
