If you struggle with clenching or grinding your teeth, you are not alone. Bruxism, or chronic teeth grinding, is a common struggle that can be caused or exacerbated by factors like stress, alcohol and caffeine consumption, certain medications, and genetics. If you know that you grind your teeth on a regular or even semi-regular basis, we recommend seeking treatment, as untreated teeth grinding can cause irreparable damage to the teeth, gums, and jaw.

Reducing Stress

This is much easier said than done, we know! Even if you are going through an especially stressful time in your life, there are things that can be done to help lower your stress levels and cortisol and reduce your bruxism as a result. Exercise, meditation, and visits with a therapist can help reduce bruxism. Creating a relaxing nightly routine, cutting down on screen time, and getting enough sleep at night can also help with chronic teeth clenching and grinding.

Massaging Your Jaw Muscles

Bruxism can cause the muscles in the jaws and face to feel tight and sore, which can feel uncomfortable and make it difficult to speak and eat normally. Gently massaging the jaw muscles, especially before going to bed at night, can help relieve tension and relax the muscles. If you find yourself overworking these muscles by routinely doing things like chewing on ice, gum, fingernails, or pen caps, jaw massages can be especially helpful.

Get a Custom Nightguard

Nightguards for bruxism are designed to absorb the pressure from clenched jaw muscles and protect the teeth from damaging each other. When worn regularly, patients can protect their tooth enamel and prevent dental trauma and gum recession. Durable nightguards are an excellent treatment option for patients who struggle with bruxism regularly regardless of their stress levels and lifestyle habits. Custom nightguards are also designed to conform to the patient’s teeth perfectly, making them comfortable to sleep in.
